This was once my best kept secret but it seems the cat was let out of the bag…
Elbow room only at this joint but IMHO this is the best Italian restaurant in London with everything you expect: family atmosphere, funny and attentive waiters, eccentric owner, squashy seating, and fantastic food. A real neighbourhood joint. I’ve never had a bad evening ever since I started coming here a couple of years ago. Try the pasta. You won’t be disappointed. Welcoming, intimately cosy, not-sceney and consistent. Don’t expect family-friendly prices, though. This is Chelsea, afterall.
If you want the scene, then go to Scalini’s.
Recommend: pasta, fish, veal Milanese
So-So: Osso Bucco (good flavour but I’ve had better)
