Thankfully, we were tipped off about this little gem by the doorman of a nearby hotel, otherwise we would have walked straight passed. The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing!

The ingredients were fresh and beautifully prepared; the pasta was freshly made in-house. Each flavour was distinct and none overpowering.

The cakes and coffee were also wonderful.

We were in the area by chance but would make the effort to return just to eat here again. Highly recommended.

Really good value no nonsense Italian cafe offering unpretentious but good quality food at fair prices. On an area dogged by overpriced restaurants this is a good place for a quick lunch .
Loos are very trendy!

Petrocchi is not a Michelin starred restaurant - but that's a good thing!

The ingredients are if a very high quality, but unlike Michrlin starred restaurants, the portions are plentiful.

This is the kind of restaurant to come to if you appreciate fine dining but have an appetite and don't want to spend a King's Ransom!!

We had a mixture of plates and between us I tried the Burrata (incredible!), Vitello Tonnata (wonderful), octopus (not my usual choice, but very tasty), prawns with samphire and carpaccio if beef (both sublime). We then had pasta dishes for main courses (orichiette with salsiccia and taglietelle with veal ragu) which were both amazing.

This is a restaurant for those who appreciate good food and like generous portions! I recommend it heartily.

Opposite the Royal Institute - which is also worth a visit Mon-Fri or on monthly family days- as other reviews state, it's a gem. Relaxed, warm friendly service, modern Italianate interior and great food. Worth a visit for the gelati and coffee alone. Infinitely better than any of the chain restaurant and cafe offerings on the busier streets nearby.

We've lunched here twice now, both times having an excellent salad, and thoroughly enjoyed it. On our first visit the weather was good and we ate outdoors so we were pleasantly surprised to find such a smart interior when we went in to pay. The staff are pleasant and friendly. My only criticism today was that the avocado that should have appeared in my salad had been replaced with courgette, without me being told. I hate courgettes but luckily my husband doesn't so he took mine. I didn't mention it but had I been lunching alone without someone to eat my courgette I would have drawn attention to it as I feel it should have been mentioned. However the rest of the salad was delicious and we will certainly eat there again when we're in the area. It's very convenient for the Royal Academy, and situated in a street with some very interesting private galleries.
