Il Bordello's is well known to anyone living anywhere near Wapping. The food is constantly good, and not overly priced if you stick to the fixed menu. Big shame this restaurant doesn't appear to recycle - not impressed about that! But otherwise a good restaurant.

Attended a friends party and ate at Bordello's last night .................. It was absolutely fantastic!!!! The food was colourful, very tasty and the service was excellent. Cant wait to go back.

Not good at all, massive portions of tasteless food; table are so close that it feels like being in a school canteen. Prices are ridiculously high, especially for the poor quality wine (a screw cork bottle cannot cost more than 10 pounds!).

We have been to Bordello's 4 times and it's wonderful. The food is fresh, the seafood risotto is amazing and the best squid I've ever tasted, melt in the mouth. They make the choux pastry fresh each day and the homemade profiteroles are truly wonderful.

We went there a few weeks back and I must say it's probably one of the best restaurants I have ever been in. We went as a table of four and only had to wait about 5 minutes (we booked in advance) before we were taken to our table. The starters tasted lovely (we had garlic bread and mozzarella starter) and the main course was just divine. The steak I had was cooked to perfection with very tasty vegetables. The only thing I was surprised about was their portion sizes. I managed to finish mine but I dont think I'll be getting a starter next time due to the portion size! Overall, a amazing restaurant with friendly staff and great atmosphere. Definably a restaurant to check out if you ever go to London.

I LOVE Ill Bordello! just came across this (rude) review when searching for their number to make a reservation. Its a lovely restaurant - warm, friendly, modest, and the food is amazing. Im not even a huge italian fan as its 'something you can make at home' but this restaurant is my favourite in London. I would recommend to book as there is always the regulars to go, and it is a 'regulars' environment - but thats what makes it even nicer. Chatting to the person next to you that youve never met is a breath of fresh air in unpersonal London. Highly recommended.

I have eaten at Il Bordello before and very much enjoyed the food. However I went back there for my birthday tonight and was shocked and surprised by my and my partners treatment by the head waiter. We unfortunately had not booked a table as we both work long hours in city jobs. We were told that it would be a 10-5 minute wait. We decided we would wait. As we waited we noticed that many of the head waiters friends were being treated in a far pleasanter manner. Firstly being asked if they wouldlike to go to the bar and then a table of three were seated before us. We decided to let this go as we were only a table of two. Then the couple next to us were seated first, who had not booked but were dressed as if they had just come out of the office. My partner asked why they had been sat and we were still waiting, completely civilly. The head waiter turned on him and asked if my partner wanted to 'do his job for him', then said that the couple in the suits had booked. When my partner objected, he said 'what do you want me to throw them out of their seats?' My partner said no and that he had not come out to argue. And so we left. I was really disappointed as it was my birthday and this man completely unnecessary spoilt it. It was made worse by the fact that it seemed we were being put to one side as we didn't look like we were going to spend as much money, as we had got changed out of our work clothes before we left. I will be writing to the owner and telling him about this experience, and suggesting he advise his staff not to judge books by their covers: as lawyers we probably would have spent quite a lot. However the dismissive behaviour of the staff was quite off putting.

Il Bordello's is brilliant all round. It is always my first choice restaurant since first eating in there 4 years ago. Excellent food, very friendly and welcoming staff, quick service. Food is fresh and delicious and at fantastic prices. I have also visited the sister restaurant, La Figa in Limehouse, also great food. Service was professional but impersonal (is much bigger venue though). Much more warm and friendly in Wapping. Good for any occasion, I have been their for birthdays, dates with my partner, and taken family and friends there - I have visited on several occassions. Service, staff and food has never faltered! Top quality.
