We had the fish degustation menu, it was a great experience, head waiter was charming and the sommelier understanding and helpful with his recommendations. It was a lot to eat but we managed! It is difficult to choose a favourite dish. The next table had...More

Expected great things but did not deliver. The food was good but the service was poor - waiters were disinterested, inhospitable and uncaring. Good wine but the sommelier was unhelpful. Not a great experience.

Overblown restaurant with condescending waiters. I had to ask for them to turn down the musak from the loudspeaker just above my head which seemed to affront them. It went downhill from there - maybe my choices were poor but the food was bland and...More

This is a grand an formal restaurant so if you fancy a plate of pasta or a simple piece of fish there are plenty other places to go. But if you are in for a special occasion or a different meal still keeping to Italian...More

Don Camillo is an interesting blend of traditional Italian service and international service. It's a bit surprising to us to pour our own water and wine in a restaurant of this level but really, how difficult is this. I found the service to be quite...More
