We had booked for Da Mario nearby but they were overwhelmed by the Diana Anniversary crowd and were running half an hour late so we left and wandered up the road to this very traditional Italian eatery offering standard Italian fare. It's perfectly ordinary in...More

We were aiming for the restaurant next door which seemed crowded and fussy, but instead found this gem. Had plenty of space, great service, nice bread basket and great dinner for the whole family.

This place seems to be designed to cater to tourists and other people who are unlikely to visit more than once so it doesn't bother to try hard to please. The food and wine OK but not delightful and the service is offhand at best....More

Great traditional Italian Menu. Nice wines. Very attentive and responsive service. Right in te middle of a very touristy area. Good for dinner before going to the Royal Albert Hall and also close to the Museums. A fun place

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
