Always lovely, jolly, and good value. Great outdoor area in Duke of Yorks backwater away from the busy Kings Road. Staff are smiley and service excellent. If you're in London, book now - oh and the lobster pasta is excellent!

Very nice atmosphere and protected outdoors seating. Food is good but not very special. I had pasta and mussels and they were very gritty. A little expensive for what it is.

Lovely food, attentive staff and a very pleasant atmosphere. A little disappointed that there was no brunch menu as we had really been looking forward to that, but I have to say the service was stellar.

We were disappointed. The food was comparable to high street Italian fare, except about triple the price. The prices on the menu here on OpenTable weren't representative of the actual prices on the menu we were given, we understand restaurants are trying to make up for lost time but the amount we paid versus the quality of food we were served was just extremely disproportionate and disappointing. I had the most expensive pasta dish on the menu and it frankly didn't taste very nice, and it was garnished with an empty lobster shell, which seemed strange and like they were trying to justify the high price tag.
My husband also called ahead to let them know it was our anniversary and we were assured there would be something done, however, even after ordering dessert, they didn't bring out the promised 'special anniversary dessert' and my husband had to remind the server of our anniversary after the bill was brought, and only then were we brought a small piece of cake and 'champagne'- the maître d' offered us champagne as an apology, but when the server brought it he called it prosecco and it did indeed taste like cheap prosecco. After spending a huge amount of money on our anniversary dinner, this left a really bad taste.

Very disappointed. Our reservation was for 11 am breakfast. We arrived and were told that breakfast finishes at 11 am and we needed to order immediately, the menu on the table said breakfast finished at 11:30.We were told it was a mistake by the printer. Why was that not crossed out & the correct time put on. The restaurant was empty but our table was not ready. It was a cold day and some of the heaters were not working. They had four months to make sure everything was in working order. It took 15 minutes to seat us. We placed our order after a lot of messing around and we had to keep calling for the drinks that were forgotten, when the food arrived it was only warm. There was obviously no management watching the restaurant as it was a quiet morning.

Duke of York Square is a great spot if you want (or have) to eat outside, and Manicomo is well set up with spaced out tables, plenty of heaters and rugs. The food is excellent - not cheap, but this is Chelsea!

Nice place however bit cold. Think they need to invest in more effective outdoor
heating and ensure food does not also arrives at the the table cold which both serve
to spoilt an otherwise positive experience.

Our table was reserved for brunch at 10.30am. At 9am I got a call to be informed that, unfortunately, they had a problem in the kitchen and would not be able to provide any food. I said it was oj as we mainly wanted to meet up - 1st day opening up 12th April. I arrived on time and was directed to a lovely table but right next to the only 2 other table occupied (?!?) I mean, if the idea is to keep apart why put us right next to one another when there is no need. Talking to the waiter I asked what was wrong in the kitchen . Surprisingly I was told that the problem was that the toilets were not working and they couldn’t serve us food . By then we were 3 people there for about 30 minutes. They forgot to ask us to fill up a form or scan on the NHS app- which I had been told was an obligation. I did as well, to be frank. But it should have been pretty visible. 10 minutes later the 4th friend arrives and goes straight to the toilets. Again, for my surprise they were in perfectly working order.. ?! I really do like this place but they haven’t quite got their act together .
