It's the attitude of this restaurant' management to its customers which concerns me. The night that we chose this restaurant we, like many other prospective customers perused the menu on display at the front door. What we could not know from that perusal was that the restaurant imposes a mandatory 15% service charge on patrons. We could not know because... More

VecchioMondo is a classic London Italian Restaurant serving straightforward tasty Italian dishes. My Minestrone was full of flavour and the Pollo alla Casalinga excellent. Vegetables were perfectly cooked. Service was polite and friendly. A good place to eat.

Called in after a day in London sightseeing. Ordered 2 pizzas and a seafood linguine for 3 adults. The pizzas were small, thick, hacked into uneven pieces and raw in the middle with no flavour. The seafood was past its best and meagre. Only one member of staff on show who was infriendly and did not ask if our food... More

This place looks like it should be a great little trattoria style Italian restaurant. In reality it's a cold, charmless place with very mediocre food at very high prices for what you get. Avoid this place unless you are desperate.

Unfriendly service, no ambiance, way too expensive for the quality of the food and drinks, stay away if you can avoid it

We were four at the table the evening of the 25th of decembre. Only one woman served all the tables. We waited a long time to get our meal. The pizza was extremely small and boring. The tomato soup uneatable. the pasta dishes were average and less. the prices were extremely high for such a dinner quality. We are used... More

12 of us went there as it was opposite our hotel ( business trip) - much of what has already been said holds true with our experiences. only one waitress/server, very quiet evening, 3 couples were in when we arrived, no one else came in during our meal. I can only speak for my 'mushroom pizza' which was probably the... More

We went in here as it was virtually opposite our hotel - the food was decent, but I couldn't work out why there wasn't any more than one server. Several times people came in looking for a table and left before being offered a table, then at least one group were turned away from a half empty restaurant, being told... More

We stopped at this small Italian restaurant as we were staying nearby. It is like a little treasure! The atmosphere was old school Italian restaurant and the hostess was amazing. She was not only the hostess, but served as the waitress and although she was very busy, we felt well cared for. I was with my son and a friend... More

Small traditional Italian restaurant on a busy road, hidden behind loads of flowers and bushes. Two other tables occupied when we arrived. Had to struggle to get food ordered but it was ok when it arrived. Couldn't believe it when the only person serving went in the back for about 5 minutes, and lost two parties who came in, waited...

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.
