Family restaurant serving very good Italian food. It did seem popular with the locals as when we left it was full.

This is an ok Italian restaurant that we visited on a Saturday evening and was busy but not full. The staff were great except they messed up the order and brought one of our party the completely wrong dish. They did finally bring the correct one but by then we all had finished our meal, you can’t keep pasta hot... More

I was here recently for an early evening meal. The menu was very good, the service was very efficient and pleasant. It is a little crowded - not much elbow room! However, everything about the meal was very good. It is, perhaps, a bit overpriced, but then what do you expect for Central London? It was an easy walk from... More

We were here on Saturday evening. We started the evening by tasting the bruchetta, and it was good. A new way to serve it made it interesting. Then I had pasta carbonara, it was ok, but nothing special. Maybe I expected more since we were in a real Italian restaurant. The housewine was nice. Athosphere was nice, but it took... More

My husband and I have visiting Orsini for the last three years as it is fairly priced, good quality, authentic Italian food. The service has always been great and we have recommended this restaurant to many of our friends and family. Out of the 10 or so times we have been we've not once had a bad experience, but our...

I should preface by saying that my friend had a lovely mixed seafood pasta which she found delicious . I had the carbonara - which was effectively scrambled egg and spaghetti and very little else - highly disappointing . Staff were friendly but didn't remember to bring our drinks order and left off our green salad side order . Had... More

Had dinner here a couple of nights during recent visit to London. Friendly staff, OK service (Red wine arrived instead of white I ordered), reliable, straight forward food. No pretension, just a nice place for a reliable meal.

Visited early evening on a Saturday before going to Albert Hall. Food was delicious, a carafe of house red less than £10, and very drinkable, and gorgeous puds. Very small tables and not much room for a candle, which I think would add to the atmosphere. A minor point in an otherwise very enjoyable evening!

They were able to accomodate us with reservation which was nice. Several people there were clearly regulars. Staff were informal but attentive and very good, seemed truly Italian first generation,. I had veal Marsala - very good - my friend had the special tagliatelle, even better - and we shared. The lentil soup starter was excellent and could have been... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
