Both my husband and I found our meal bland. There was no taste and we were thoroughly dissapointed. We will not return.

I have been to Il Trillo twice and I will continue to go back there. It's one of the best places for Italian in London in my opinion. Family run, friendly staff who give superb recommendations, warm service, and high quality ingredients and inventive cooking. The menu is also very interesting - I see things I don't always see in...

The service was absolutely awful... the order was wrong, the waiter emptied a glass on one of the guests, people were charged twice... the definition of a good dinner that turned very bad. What a shame

Really lovely restaurant with beautiful secret garden. I went with a friend for dinner and we ate in one of the fabulous tables in the garden. The atmosphere is romantic and classy and if you have been in Italy you will feel like you completely belong here. Nice music and perfect ambient lighting. We obviously decided to try one of...

I had wanted to give this venue a try since it opened a few years ago, and never got round to it - finally, i went on Saturday with my husband. I was skeptical at first - we had booked for 8pm, but the venue seemed empty from the outside. Once we got indoors, we realised the back was actually... More

It is a proper Italian restaurant: high quality and real food from Tuscany. The restaurant itself is really nice. I loved the lemon trees. The only black mark is the wine list: bad balance between price and quality. Nowadays people can recognize the difference between the cheapest supermarket plonk and quality wines and you cannot play anymore, especially in London.... More

Il Trillo is a beautiful Italian restaurant that offers amazing Italian food and wine to enjoy in a lovely atmosphere. We didn't have a reservation on Friday night, but had no problems getting a table. We will definitely come back!

Although this restaurant is well known and cherished among locals, and should be considered the BEST Italian restaurant in London, it is relatively unknown and unlisted in guides. It is a family run restaurant that is tucked away on a side street in Chelsea so you will not come upon it by accident. It has the most authentic and inventive... More

We had been to Trillo once, it wasn't great but as we are local we thought we'd give it another try. The initial service was slow, we had to ask to be served for the menu, water and wine. The waiter knew nothing about wine and just pointed at the most expensive bottle. First course came after about 20 minutes,... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
