As a previous diner I was warmly greeted as a repeat customer and enjoyed the flavours in my seafood pasta. The white wine was lovely and I was tempted by a second glass. The restaurant was quiet with half term so a little lacking in atmosphere. I will be back again!

I went to the Sardinia Corner after a long reserch with my partner who wanted eat typical food made in Sardinia and finally we found what we were searching, all the staff were professional and friendly, Giovanni the restaurant owner was able to recommend what to eat, the food was very good, real products made in Sardinia (Italy). The 'fregola ai frutti di mare' and 'malloreddus' are excellent the 'semifreddo al torroncino' was exquisite. We will go again.

Just LOVE this place. What could possibly warm your soul more than purple gnocchi, I ask you? And since cheese sauce is the true MVP of my life, my dish was nothing short of sensational.
We tried four different pastas and all of them were superlative, as was the vino and the fried pastry dessert - but it's really the staff who made it worth our while, and made us feel so welcome throughout the whole dinner.

A wonderful find. The filled ravioli was excellent as was the couscous with fresh fish. I thought the creme brulee was carefully made as was the semifredo.The staff were attentive but not intrusive and the bill was reasonable. I would definitely go there again to try more menu choices.

Sardinia Corner was just round corner from our hotel. It was a cold night and reviews were positive and we like Italian food. We liked restaurant layout - sparse and rustic but cosy. Not many customers - only 3 tables occupied including ours. Even though quiet it had a nice ambience and the staff were friendly and efficient. Food was average but a little pricey for what it was - simple Sardinian fayre. Probably wouldn’t go again and wouldn’t recommend to a friend. However, I would suggest trying Sardinian Corner yourself and make up your own mind as there are plenty of good reviews for this restaurant and maybe I ordered wrong thing.

Had a dinner with my family in this restaurant just before Christmas and the food was absolutely delicious and very high quality from the starters to the main courses. The choice of dessert was somewhat limited but they were also excellent. Will definitely go back next time I visit London.

Had lunch here on recomendation of a Sardinian friend , it was fantastic ! it's not often you find food of this quality in a relatively small neighbourhood restaurant, the Octopus was exceptional as was the Pork loin. Staff were attentive without being overbearing and the owner was friendly. Will definitely be going again. Tony P

A local gem hidden away on Theobalds Road which deserves to succeed in competing with its better placed culinary neighbours on Lamb's Conduit Street. The dining area is small but did not feel crowded and has a simple but welcoming feel. The menu rightly focusses on Sardinian staples all of which are presented with the minimum of fuss or formality and both look and taste great. The short wine list is also carefully chosen to complement the food. Service is friendly and informative without being intrusive. The Italian voices to be heard when we visited is testament to its authenticity.

Great little place. Attentive and friendly service. The owner came over to check we had had a nice meal and gave us a complimentary glass of dessert wine.

The food was very good - I had Sicilian pasta ragu which was excellent. My brother had a fried pastry dessert which was awesome

Would definitely return.

When I first went to Sardinia Corner, earlier in the year, I was telling people how nice it was. This visit, however, left me underwhelmed. I had the same lamb "cutlets" that I had last time, but 1) the price had gone up; 2) this time, it didn't include vegetables; 3) the "cutlets" weren't cutlets, but big fat lamb chops with loads of fat. My friend had the same.

The fact that we had to order sides, at £3.50 each, put the price of the dish up to £17.50 - it really wasn't worth that, especially as we both left all of the fat from the big chops.

Wine-by-the-glass is good value, at £5.50. We had the house Sardinian rosé, which was very fruity and summery.

The service is good and the staff are nice and friendly, but I'm now hesitant to return.

WOW - this place is great. It was recommended by an Italian friend and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious, our pasta tasted fresh, the sauce was delicious, the portions are quite filling. The coffee strong, dessert was also delicious and we loved the traditional wine (cannonau)

The staff is super friendly, very attentive and it was a nice experience to meet the owner as well. We felt very welcomed.

Sincerely I can't fault anything and the whole experience contributed for us to have a great evening and plan another soon!

This restaurant is a new addition to our neighborhood, and we are delighted to have discovered it! The food is EXCELLENT, reasonably priced and served with a smile. It's all authentic Sardinian specialties, with home-made pastas and a wonderful selection of courses and tastes (also many non-pasta, for the low carb bunch). There is also a very good wine list featuring Sardinian wines, which are really good. I hesitate to recommend it too heartily lest it become so popular that we can't get in, but I wish them only the best--they deserve to have a loyal following, and I think it's already happening. Do book in advance--it's quite small (less than 15 tables) and the word seems to be spreading among those who love good food.....
