We hadn't booked but thankfully they found a space for us. The home made lasanga was really good but bettered by the friendliness of the staff and atmosphere of the restaurant.

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
