Great pizzas and a waitress for whom nothing was too much trouble, making for a delicious lunch all round whilst listening to the great live music of George Montague.

The finest gnocchi I have ever tasted, perfectly sized with a wonderful consistency and a luxurious garlicky sauce with shaved truffles - D'licious. Waiters and waitresses super-helpful and friendly.

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.
