“Honest”, “fresh-tasting pasta and Italian staples” have won a major fanclub for this “unobtrusive” but “buzzy and very good-value institution” near Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. “Service is high-speed” and there’s a “fun atmosphere” – but be warned, it’s “not for the hard of hearing”.

This “canteen-style Italian” near Chelsea & Westminster Hospital “always hits the spot” with its “simple, peasant-style cooking”“excellent antipasti and pasta, and a fine selection of secondi if you want one” – although it can get “very noisy”. “Always welcoming with kids.” Top Menu Tip: “proper fresh zabaglione made to order”.

“No frills good food” – in particular “perfect pasta” – fuels the “loud and buzzy” atmosphere (“manic on Chelsea match days”) at this “fun”, little café, near Chelsea & Westminster Hospital. “Still my firm favourite after over 10 years; the menu is reassuringly unchanged and the quality is excellent”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
