Not particularly busy, (5.30) white wine served up warm, took over an hour for main to arrive, spaghetti ok, (hard to ruin). Chicken main overlooked, burnt around edges, and dry. Broccoli virtually raw. Front of house service good, tried hard, but they had no control...More

Great meal starting with the pizza sized garlic bread followed by a couple of different pasta plates. Lots of flavour and no skimping on portion sizes. Very friendly staff despite things being very hectic.

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
