Owners description

Mastrantonio Illovo offers authentic Italian cuisine like no other. Meals here are all about the art of good eating. Mastrantonio Illovo was the first restaurant to be opened by the group and after all these years continues to be the place to go for the best Italian cuisine in town. All activities are overseen with passion, both in the kitchen and on the floor, assuring that you receive a superb meal every time. Make sure to book though, with food this good Illovo is often full!

User reviews

  • This is a lovely restaurant but it's not glitzy or a follower of fashion. This restaurant is, I humbly suggest, a traditional Italian trattoria. It serves wholesome and correctly cooked Italian dishes. The menu is lengthy and varied, but not adventurous, the dishes are the ones to be found in any good trattoria in Italy. The ambiance was warm, relaxing and unpretentious. It was obvious that many of the customers were long time regulars. The service was sharp and professional. My two guests and I had an excellent evening.

  • I have been to this restaurant regularly over the last 10 year, but the last year or so, I've seen a disappointing decline in the quality of food and service. Food is prepared without the care and refinement of the past. My starter of asparagus was served with a hard blob of melted Parmesan which added very little in look or flavor to the (well-prepared) asparagus . The Tortellini in Brodo was bland... and unappetizing in its presentation with cloudy broth, and coarsely chopped carrots and chicken, that would have benefited from just a small sprinkling of something green. Service was perfunctory and rushed... with plates being cleared before all diners had finished. I want to believe that the quality can improve... but it might be a while before we go back.

  • HAVNT BEEN THERE FOR A LONG TIME. LAST NIGHT WAS A DISGRACE. THE WAITRESS KEPT HARASSING US TAKING PLATES AWAY AND TRYING TO CLEAR THE TABLE BEFORE WE WERE FINISHED. THEY SEEMED TO BE IN A HURRY TO CLOSE. THERE DIDNT SEEM TO BE ANYONE IN CHARGE. THE STRANGEST PART WE ORDER 2 PASTA DISHES. THEY ARRIVED IN ABOUT 5 MINUTES OF ORDERING.!! NOT GOOD OBVIOUSLY WARMED UP PASTA AND THOSE PORCINI MUSHROOMS WERE DEFINITELY NOT PORCINI. THE SAUCE WAS TASTELESS OBVIOUSLY OPENED A TIN OF MUSHROOMS AND THREW SOME CREAM IN.....WINE PRICES ARE OUTRAGEOUS. BUT THE WORST WAS THE WAITRESS WHO KEPT TRYING TO CLEAR AWAY...I WOULDNT GO BACK THERE AND WOULDNT RECOMMEND IT
