This might just be my favourite restaurant in London - always attentive and lovely staff, amazing pasta and extremely well priced. Can not recommend it highly enough. You have to try the mafalde in any form!

We ordered 3 types of pasta, 2 of each to share amongst the 4 of us. Would 100% recommend the silk handkerchief, I assume it's one of Bancone's signature pastas. The slow cooked ox cheek and ragu tagliatelle was also delicious but not our favourite. We also ordered a native lobster bucatini, which we felt was mediocre or rather disappointing. Overall, food was at a high quality and 6 pastas came down to £20pp which was a very reasonable price.

I had a really good time having lunch with my husband at Bancone. Food is very good, we ordered 3 starters and 2 mains and all the dishes were great. Wine list and the service also spot on. Definitely will come back.

The food was utterly fantastic and the atmosphere oozed Friday night London. However, the service was absolutely awful. Our waiter reached new parallels of rudeness, upon ordering a £31 bottle of Rose we were called classless to have ordered said colour of wine. Whilst I don't necessarily disagree the rose may not have been the best pairing I completely object to have such unsolicited and unasked for opinions from the waiter. Then upon choosing our main meal and taking a recommendation he had suggested we were again looked down upon as though we were ordering too much. Quite frankly as two women in their 30s who had eaten at the establishment before I can make that decision myself.

We were dining pre-theatre so really appreciated the prompt and friendly service. We’ll definitely return - we didn’t have time to make the most of the starters this time and would like to rectify that.

We very much enjoyed our dinner. Our waiter and the sommelier were a joy. I have already purchased a case of the Italian wine we shared to be shipped over! We’ll be back. My only critical point is the advanced credit card requirement, it has resulted in me not booking on a couple of occasions.

We had to flag someone down to order or get the bill, we never got the bill and had to get up to pay at the front instead.
