I have been there tonight with my partner and I said never again!! The worst pizza in London I have to say was really salty and burned around and raw inside . Linguine alle vongole overcooked really spicy and taste of nothing . When I told them at the end I paid full price and they said I should have... More

Homemade tortellini and pasta noodles that tasted homemade (owner said they were not but you could have fooled me). Very friendly staff. Place really filled up with a lot of locals while we were there.

We kept it simple as we sat outside on the sidewalk space set aside for tables and chairs. The menu is very good, offering a wide variety of food from seafood to pastas. We had pasta, pizza and a steak along with a bottle of wine that was very reasonably priced. The wait staff during our mid-afternoon lunch was limited,... More

I and six others had the pleasure to revisit Poem Bar & Grill recently while in London. We had a brilliant evening the food was superb as it was previously the attention given to us was second to none.

I consider this place "nearby Italian cafe/restaurant with great atmosphere-quality-service-price ratio". Poem does not excel at any of these criteria as the best but it does benefit from absence of nearby competition. Good for family, friends, date or alone. Any occasion

What a great evening we had last night at Poem Bar and grill. The food was delicious, beautifully cooked, the service was attentive and to top it, there was live jazz! Piano and double bass and a group of very talented singers. The jazz nights happen on the 2nd Monday every month and music is free. All in all very... More

Poem offers great pasta and pizza. The choice is dishes is huge (do we need that much to choose and be happy?). Good quality. The service is kind and attentive. Poem has a great space and a nice corner terrasse. However the decoration (decor and lights) lacks subtleness and tideness could be improved. A little upgrade would do no harm.... More

My family and I have visited about 3 times now for dinner as it is in our neighborhood. The first time was very promising as the food was fresh and well prepared. The penne arrabiata was cooked al dente and the sauce was spicy and fresh. My husband's lemon chicken was also delicious. We decided to return but that's when... More
