Great food and service. Nice wines too. Will be back
Very pleasant neighbourhood restaurant, very nice staff and they seemed to be taking all the right precautions.
Amazing service and restaurant, will definitely go back
Service was unbelievably good. Nothing was too much trouble.
Service was below average. On my arrival, I hadn’t made any reservation, so I asked if it would be possible to have a table for two outside, and your hostess said that was fully booked, even though there are 5 empty tables. Because of covid, we didn’t want to seat inside so we left. For our surprise, when we checked online there was table outside available. We did book online and went back to the restaurant. On our second arrival (10minutes after the first one) we said we had a made a online reservation and we sat outside. After 30min started raining and even though there were tables available outside under the parasol, they moved us inside. Again, I don’t know the criteria applied.
All great as usual
Long may it stay open
Looking forward to next time
We had a very nice lunch outside under an umbrella.
We all ordered a salad with pancetta, cheese and fig. All 3 of us ordered a ‘large’ but when it arrived the portion was very small - even served on a side plate!
We told the waitress that we had ordered main course not starters and she insisted that these were main course size.
It tasted very nice but was ridiculously small.
Lunch with my support bubble - perfect
Another very enjoyable meal under difficult circumstances. They have done their best with outdoor seating and spacing, and dispite a chilly and rainy day it all worked very well. The food as always was interesting and delicious.
Service was exceptional.
Excellent location with good food and service. Also managed outside eating in reasonable comfort in spite of very difficult weather.
Waitress was very rude from the start. We asked if you could add another chair and the reply was simply no without even giving an explanation. They refused to serve us wine without ID even though we are eating and some of us had ID on then. When ordering the waitress kept correcting our pronunciation of the Italian dishes. Menus were taken from the table and she didn’t ask if we wanted any starters first. After all this fuss, one of the plates were wrong but we didn’t complain as the night was already ruined. At the end when desserts arrived, the waitress said she head it was someone birthday. It made all of us very uncomfortable since she was listening to our conversation the whole night. Overall poor and very rude service!
Menu is different to online and my vegan breakfast was tiny. A meal for for 5 year old child.
Always a good service.
Excellent food and service.
Best food in the area; good service - what more can you ask for?
The outdoors area is fantastic - comfortable heaters, the plexiglass makes it almost feel indoors and private.
Great location , nice large heated outdoor area. Food is nice but there could be more vegetarian choices. Spiedini di mare and steak both very nice.
I have just returned from an excellent lunch and wanted to thank you and particularly your Rumanian sommelier - for making this a memorable occasion-
the wines she suggested were excellent and the food was superb. by chance you were able to seat us in the open part of the garden so it became almost a private dining room
once again many thanks
Food was served so raw, couldn’t cut through it and very little apology from our rude & almost arrogant waiter. Very disappointing. Had the matter been handled in a considerate and polite manner there would have been no problem but the waiters attitude spoilt the evening.
Fantastic experience. Great food and location. Recommended!
excellent food and service, we'll go back for sure
Great place to go in Chelsea - tucked away by the Saatchi Gallery
A very enjoyable late lunch with excellent service.
Excellent. Great food and very well looked after.
We ate in a very open airy conservatory with delightful ambience. The food was excellent. The service attentive but not intrusive. And all with reassuring Covid security.
It was lovely to be served so attentively and the food was delicious. I shall be back very soon!
Very welcoming not pushy and relaxing. Perfect for lunch
Great place and staff. The food and drinks are amazing.
Delicious food, cozy but classy, fantastic service.
Lovely atmosphere and really good food! Would absolutely recommend to a friend. Think the waiters were a bit busier than expected because while they were attentive and took our order quickly and our food was served without us waiting very long at all, the bill took forever to come.
Firstly I found the service really good, helpful, charming and professional. 30 years in restraunt management I know good service when I have it. The food was good and outside dining was great. The only complaint I have is smokers on other tables outside chain smoking while I ate. Not great and maybe the restaurant could make a smoking section away from others.
I have never been disappointed with the food or service..always excellent
Food was awful. Sharing charcuterie plate with not even a salad dressing dry crisp bread and one of the meats was very plastic
Wine waiter was pushy interrupting with loose chat about special offers. Also unclear why pack up and last orders has to start at 9.15. I had been a fan of manicomio but will try other places.
Charming service, very efficient drinks order! Good ambience and heating on the terrace and the food was, as ever, excellent. Even ordered Padrone Peppers which were not on the menu, but arrived nonetheless!
AMAZING food, AMAZING location! Definitely recommend.
The food was exceptional! This place is consistently delicious and the staff are attentive, the wine list is also great. can't wait to return. YUM YUM
Main course very disappointing - had the turbot which was the special of the day and ended up with a very small portion of fish that was predominantly bones and very little actual fish. Particularly disappointing as it was the special of the day and it looked like a restaurant that would deliver good food. They redeemed themselves with the dessert, but a poor main course was still disappointing.
excellent service, good atmosphere, reasonable price
