We popped in here when returning to our hotel as didn't know anywhere to go. Good sized and varied menu. Between us we ordered a pizza, risotto, pasta dish & garlic bread. The risotto had loads of oil at the bottom of the dish, the pasta was a bit chewy, pizza & garlic bread ok. Service was good. I wanted... More

Would not recommend this place to anyone. You'd be better going to get a sandwich from Sainsburys up the road. From when they brought a can of coke to the table and poured it into a wine glass for my daughter we knew we'd made a mistake. They brought me the wrong meal and practically told me I'd ordered a...

The place is dull. The staff are dull and the food is dull. We were outside and hungry. Next door was a packed Thai restaurant. This place had two other diners. We chose the £9.99 two course set menu. Salad, minestrone or spaghetti with meatballs as starters and pizza vegetarian or chicken escalope Milanese or lasagne for main course. The... More

We ordered Pizza's which was really tangy! They made them quickly, even restaurant was almost empty that moment. Recommend for couples for sure.

Expensive yet poor quality with pizzas seemingly made by Dr Oetker, certainly not Italian style. Low light of the evening was when I asked if they had any blue cheese such as Gorgonzola for a pasta dish, to be told they had something 'very similar - stilton'! Stilton is absolutely nothing like Gorgonzola and I'd certainly never use it in... More

this may be the worst restaurant I have ever been to! Don't let it's location fool you into thinking it must be nice. We went in as it was full but later realised this was due to it being full of students on a school trip. It had a funny smell like turnip and we were seated in the back... More

We stayed in London in Kensington to visit our daughter at school. We saw this restaurant from our hotel room and thought why not? It was fairly clear that a husband wife team (or family) took care of the front of the house ie greet, sit, serve etc. The food menu was extensive but the wine limited so be prepared... More

I had lunch here, service was a little slow but the food is acceptable. I ordered mineral water, mixed olives and a Margarita pizza. All were quite good , not outstanding but OK and reasonably price and the staff were pleasant.

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.
