True mama Italia in the center of Mayfair. Very calm place, at the same time wide open and maintaining imperial-must style so eligible for Mayfair. Simplicita and fresh food, lovely atmosphere. Personal watching non-stop all guest and what is happening. Good place to visit !

When in Italy, we tried Frescobaldi Prosecco at our favourite restaurant (Pagnanelli in Castel Gandolfo). After discovering that Frescobaldi had a restaurant in London, we had to try! We are so glad we did... we had a lovely meal here for my partners Birthday, great service, food and wine was delicious! The mille fouille was incredible :)

Worst customer service in town. And incredibly slow to serve food when there were only two other diners in the restaurant.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. We are very sorry that you felt the service wasn't to standard, we praise ourselves for good service and unfortunately, it looks like we haven't achieved that on your visit, we do apologies on behalf of the team. As for the slow service, we have investigated and noticed that it took 11 minutes to produce your main course that included a risotto (18 mns cooking time), I'm not sure how we could have done quicker. Once again, accept our apologies.

The food quality is very overpriced. I ordered breaded veal and the meat wasn’t fresh. My desert was tiramisu which should be star of the show in an expensive Italian restaurant however, it was very average tiramisu that you can find in an ordinary non Italian restaurant too!

The menu was a reasonably large selection of Tuscan dishes including lots of fresh pastas and meat dishes. We had ravioli and pappardelle and they were both great, but the outstanding dish was the octopus starter.

We really liked the food but found the service a little odd (e.g. we were seated with drinks menus but had to ask for the food ones) and the drinks over-priced.

Both my girlfriend and I had a lovely evening at Ristorante Frescobaldi. All the team were so friendly and really sweet. Food was beautiful and the atmosphere was amazing. We will certainly be returning once more. Point for improvement, It was our anniversary and this was mentioned during the booking with Open Table. The restaurant did not mention anything which was not an issue but it would have made my girlfriend feel a bit special.

A nice restaurant, with good food, but whilst chatting with a colleague, without warning the lunch time menu was swiped away at 3pm on the dot. Only to be told that we now had to order off the A la carte menu, a bit harsh when we had been there ½ hour – be warned.

The exciting interior decorated with extraordinary figures and the names of frescobaldi wines contrasts starkly with the dreary buildings where it is housed. The cooking was sublime, innovative and delicious, service excellent though there were not many customers and the wine list of course extraordinary! The bill was also impressive but the experience justified it.

We enjoyed an early evening meal at this beautiful restaurant tucked away in a side street just off Regent Street. It is perfectly placed for such an occasion with easy access to all public transport routes. The food is some of the best Italian food that I have eaten in London with portions just the right measure to provide fulfillment at each course. My wife had the crunchy sourdough crostini with traditional Tuscan chicken liver patè flavoured with Vinsanto 40 Altari and I chose the crispy courgette flowers filled with Ricotta and fresh herbs and both dishes were beautifully prepared and presented. For main course we both chose fresh pasta dishes, hers being the hand made ravioli filled with Bufala burrata, fresh tomato and basil sauce and mine the truly delicious hand-cut pappardelle with fresh Morel mushrooms and beef cheek sauce. We shared the Pesca al forno which was a cooked peach in suavitatis wine served with amaretti shavings and mascarpone ice cream - truly excellent. The only downside of the evening was that the service was somewhat slow which was disappointing given that for most of the time there was only one other couple and us in the restaurant. However, that will not stop me from going again and recommending the venue with confidence.

Worst restaurant from my Trip to London.
It was a real disaster, espescially the service from the woman with red hair.
she was very disrespectul towards us and other customers.
Also, the food wasn’t that good and the portions were too small.
that’s a shame because the place was nicely decorated.
we absolutely don’t recommend it.

Loved Frescobaldi! Have been to their restaurant in Florence and loved it there too. The outdoor area in the London location was perfect for a hot day in London. And because it’s not on a main road you can easily enjoy an Aperol Spritz without car exhaust fumes! Service was so lovely - wish I remembered our waiters name, but he was brilliant with my two children, who have said it’s their new fave London restaurant. And that was before they were brought the sweet jars!

Service and wine were good, the food only average. Restaurant was busy but not full. Would suggest the draw here is the wine from the family estate. Other better restaurants nearby

At the beginning they kept bugging us with water , 3 member staffs kept approaching so we decided to say yes and go ahead. They didn’t give the menu right when we got our table. They halfed our mains when I didn’t understand what they meant by sharing instead they half our pasta in one plate and the portion was small. seems like they forgot our fish later on while we ask them. The sea bass was dry and over cooked with burnt sides.. came late as well... I think this is a good Italian restaurant but they need to rethink how they treat their customers.. over all at the end the waitress donatella was sweet and apologise to us and resolve the problem. Sweet at the end but they need to think about treating customers right at the beginning with warmth and good service.

Nice ambiance though massive confusion about bringing the appetizers out and they forgot our friends meal so we sat there for 15 minutes waiting whilst our food became cold. Disappointing given the potential of the restaurant- not sure why the ordering was messed up.

I have been several times and I was disappointed in the marked deterioration in quality and presentation of food which had previously been excellent. My appetiser of burrita was awash with soggy tomato and limp lettuce and the main of John Dory tasted ok but nothing special and was presented in a very messy and unappetising paper wrapping. Very disappointing. Wines were perfect and service attentive and good

After just returning from Sardinia and still wanting some good Italian Cuisine we headed to Frescobaldi Restaurant... the truffle pasta was such a huge let down !! the wines were good enough but you will need to sift through the expensive imitations to get that real gem. (i won't quote mine as everyone's taste is so different)
