I really love the food here and the ambiance is great. My only criticism would be that the service is almost too attentive. Whilst the staff are lovely, you hardly put your glass or plate down before it is taken away and the staff want to bring the next course.
In a restaurant of this quality you do expect to have at least a short pause between courses in order to allow the food to digest.
I’m not entirely surprised that the staff wanted a quick turnaround today as it is Chelsea Flower show week.
However this is my second visit this week and it was the same on Monday, a little bit too much emphasis on getting you through the the meal at a break neck speed.

Sophisticated but welcoming. Particularly good service and excellent staff. Food is not cheap but very good Italian stuff. Short rib (not particularly Italian!) was gooey and melting.

I like it here. I feel at home. It’s a place for ladies who lunch and who put on a slick of lipstick in the evening to have dinner with their husband. (Never someone else’s).

Manicomio is a wonderful restaurant with great food and superb, attentive service. You leave feeling well fed and well looked after. This everything I look for in a good restaurant. The fact that the price of food and wine are good value makes the occasion even more enjoyable. I always recommend Manicomio to anyone looking for a great meal in London

We had come down to London to go to the theatre and found this restaurant within easy walking distance of Sloane Square. We were very impressed with our experience of the visit. Food was exceptional one of the best Italian meals we have had outside of Italy. We are both vegetarian and the choice for us was good. My wife’s gluten intolerance was well catered for and she was able to enjoy he food without appearing odd. The desserts were well presented and luxurious. Whilst expensive for most of the UK it was good value for the quality of food in this part of London. We will definitely be coming again.
