12 of us made to feel welcome for a 20+ year reunion lunch. Good food, short of excellent, but great for a noisy group. Service was friendly and a typical Italian ambience.

As a long time local, Frantoio has consistently delivered for years. It's a place where the staff know your name, give you a warm embrace and a bit of banter. It's not fancy, but an honest Italian with really well executed dishes. The owner, Bucci...More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
