Beautiful little restaurant, very friendly staff and really reasonably priced considering the location. Would definitely recommend. I would advise booking as it’s only a small little place, only thing is it has no toilet but there are public toilets across the road.
Useful spot for a meal or a snack (some hot dishes, salads etc) and a glass of wine. Pleasant service. Entertainment from the piazza outside. No toilets (but public toilets nearby)
This is a great little Italian trattoria with an exceptional hand in the kitchen. From bread to meat to dessert, the food was delicious and properly seasoned. I highly recommend it.
really good wine selection they have and the waitress was so nice to tell us her opinion.The food was so so good,fresh and good.The only thing is that they don't have a toilet but still charging 10% service.
Very helpful staff. On a hot night they arranged to transfer my booking to the pop up restaurant in the Piazza. This is a wine shop, with food. The selection of wines by the glass is substantial and you can buy literally hundreds by the bottle at shop prices. They also have high end wines available by the glass, kept fresh using the corovin system. If you want to explore the huge variety of wines from Italy, this is surely the place to go.
Ideal location, if you like the buskers in Covent Garden: we were treated to opera singers and violin virtuosi during our lunch, performing just outside the (open) restaurant windows. The menu is fairly limited but quite tasty. The wine, of course, is good. There are only a few tables, so booking would be advisable if you are very keen to visit this restaurant. The venue is quaint but without much atmosphere, at least at lunchtime. The service is good. I wouldn't rush to eat there again but would be happy if I ended up there for a drink.
When we booked we were advised you would close at 7pm as it was New Year's Eve however when we arrived for our 4pm reservation you the said you were closing at 6pm. Our friends were a little late and we felt rushed as all your staff had their coats on ready to leave before 6pm.i was also disappointed that you didn't have 3 choices on the menu available and the only hot dish available was sausage lasagne. The food and wine was good and your staff friendly however we felt rushed
This branch of Vini Italiani whilst small is very nice given its location in Covent Garden. Outside if the wine bar are opera singers and other performers. The service is excellent and the staff is quite knowledgeable about the wines on offer.
It was our first visit to Vini Italiani and we were very pleased with our experience. The menu, with sharing platters and a selection of light meals and mains was a perfect pre-theatre menu and the service was excellent.
The place is lovely, the service is excellent (the waiters are nice and helpful) and the wine choice is remarkable. However, it is very overpriced, even for Covent Garden. We spent 16 £ for 7 (seven) slices of bresaola and 1 mozzarella, and 9 £ for a spritz. Plus service charge. So, it is great for a drink, not great for the wallet.
