Italian restaurant in London and a very good one too. We've been here several times and the food has always been first rate. Service is competent and the wine list is top notch. Can't wait till our next visit!

There's nothing wrong with the restaurant, but it's just that the balance between food, the atmosphere and prices is not to be found. Italian food by definition is about the quality of the ingredients and to enjoy it in a relaxed atmosphere. Well, from a...More

Staff are well dressed and over cautious. Food is too salty, minimal, overpriced and lacks personality. You’re paying for the post code alone and it’s obvious. Eating in a Knightsbridge restaurant is bound to be pricey but it’s not enjoyable when the food quality is...More

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

Zafferano has become one of the most consistently lauded Italian restaurants in London since bursting onto the Belgravia dining scene in 1995. Serving a menu of authentic, wholesome Italian recipes, there is also an elegant bar serving flavoursome cocktails and a separate menu of regional Italian favourites. The restaurant boasts classic, chic decor, and a consistently warm Mediterranean ambience which draws diners back time and time again.
