Came across va'pensiero a few nights ago for the 1st time and loved the variety of the menu. The food was lovely and well worth the money. A lovely young waitress served us and she made the evening even more enjoyable as you do not often find staff so committed anymore, will definitely be returning. If you have not tried its well worth going i can't wait to return.

I went to this restaurant for the first time last night with my girlfriend, and from the moment we walked in the service and atmosphere felt friendly. A combination of mixed canvas pictures hung on red walls with wooden tables and chairs helped generate a comfortable and warm setting.

The waiter was friendly and helpful when ordering dinner and the service was very quick. The place wasn't busy at the time (Tuesday evening) so I wouldn't be able tell if the service would have been as quick on a busy night.

I was surprised by how inexpensive the menu seemed to be for a nicely presented restaurant in London (maybe Ive been to too many over-priced restaurants). A 2 course meal for 2 people with sides and drinks came to around £50. Although almost certainly not as nice as the award winning restaurants of London, the food was very nice (none was wasted).

All-in-all, a great experience. We shall be returning soon. And next time we will make room for the desserts.

Va pensiero is one of my favorite places to eat, the menu caters to everyone as they have pizza, pasta, grills, and fantastic burger's which I highly recommend. The service and food is brilliant, I have been a regular customer for a year now and love it. The prices are amazing and Monday to Saturday they offer a 25% discount.

Absolutely in love with va'pensiero, it has a very nice and warm atmosphere, the service is outstanding all the girls are friendly and helpful. The food is very well worth the money . The new burger menu is really worth trying as you cant find a burger as nice and as full of flavour anywhere else. If you haven't been to va'pensiero you don't know what your missing.
