Very nice atmosphere and attentive staff and restaurant management. Unfortunately the restaurant did not manage to cook the Scottish fillet medium in two attempts. It kept coming out raw in large parts, even though it was pre-cut and you had the opportunity to check the degree of doneness in the kitchen. The offer not to charge for at least one dish does not change the fact that several of us ended the restaurant visit hungry. What a pity!

Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback, as it gives us the opportunity improve ourselves. We're grateful to read the staff were attentive and atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice, however disappointed to hear that a few of your guests ended your restaurant visit hungry - as this is absolutely not our standard style of hospitality here at Baduzzi. We strive to ensure all of our guests are comfortably full and happy when they leave. Please feel free to email the team directly upon your next visit so we can discus your preferences and ensure all of your guests are beyond satisfied.

The food here is next level! You think you've eaten Italian food? Try it here! Everything was beautifully presented, prepared, and the service was excellent. Not a single chicken nugget on the kids' menu, which pleased my son who loves to try new food. He raved about his Mr Meatballs w fresh pasta, and his chocolate cake dessert arrived looking stunning too.
Baduzzi manages to achieve family friendly and relaxed without compromising on quality. We loved our evening, celebrating my husband's birthday!
