Summary

This squished Belgravia Sardinian has a “fabulous menu” and its very competent cooking is very consistently highly rated; it’s perennially pricey though – even fans can feel costs are “pushed up to unaffordable levels for what is in essence a neighbourhood restaurant”.

Summary

“Dated” ’90s Belgravian, with “tables too close together and dreadful acoustics”; “it’s very popular for good reason” though – its Sardinian cuisine is “consistently excellent” and matched with “interesting Sardinian wines”.

Summary

“Expensive but excellent” Belgravia’s ‘original’ Olivo looks pretty “tired” nowadays, and it gets pretty “noisy” too; “after all these years”, though, the Sardinian cuisine remains “fresh” and “authentic”.

Summary

A minimalist Sardinian fixture, near Victoria, which is “always packed with regulars”, thanks to its “interesting” wines and “consistently good” cooking… “dreadful acoustics and dated décor” notwithstanding.
