Shocked to see prior reviews of poor service and bad value. We stumbled upon this restaurant for a pre-Royal Albert Hall show, and were delighted. It is small, quaint and welcoming, and very relaxing. Also a real "Venetian" feel. The service was good and food...More

Friendly service and traditional Italian food. The pizzas are good and the restaurant accommodates us after we have been to The Proms. Book a table in advance.

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
