Lovely relaxed atmosphere, service was perfectly timed and unobtrusive. Staff struck the right note of friendliness without being over-familiar, and we were certainly made to feel welcome! Food was lovely, portion sizes just right to actually enjoy eating it all and leaving a clean plate....More

Booked for early supper, before catching train home from Victoria, Restaurant doesn't unlock door until c. 6 p.m., so don't arrive early if it's raining - they won't let you in! Good Italian food, efficient and friendly service. Would return.

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
