“Always fun and typically Italian” is how many long-term fans still regard this long-standing Chelsea favourite, renowned for its family-friendly style (“it’s full of groups with kids at the weekend”), and “delightful” back garden. It’s always been “inclined to be rather expensive” though, and – now long in the tooth – the odd former fan feels it’s becoming “a shadow of what it was in its heyday”.
“You can always rely on this longstanding Chelsea favourite”, say fans of this family-run and family-friendly “classic”. Even they often admit that it’s “pricey”, or that the food nowadays is “not particularly good”, but they treasure its “fun”, “buzzy” style, and “lovely” back garden in summer.
A ’60s, “old-school, family-run Italian” in the heart of Chelsea that’s still a “characterful” classic for its loyal fan club, especially for a family occasion (and with “a lovely garden in summer”); even some fans might however concede that to some extent it’s “living on its past, and very expensive”.
This perennially fashionable ’60s trattoria, at World’s End, is a real “golden oldie”, say fans – “just how an Italian ought to be”; those who look at the telescope from the other end, however, may perceive a “dinosaur” that’s “subsiding into expensive mediocrity”.
La Famiglia Restaurant Diner Reviews
"The food is good, but not necessarily outstanding. Pleasant enough, but perhaps the creeping pricing may prove to be detrimental for what it is."
"By far the worst Italian restaurant I have ever been to SHOCKING How they can charge their prices for food that is to be honest awful I do not know It ruined our day, especially as the manager was bad tempered rude and unhelpful My girlfriend was in tears when we left There are so many good restaurants that don't rely on past reputation, so save yourself a lot money as the restaurant is not cheap and go somewhere else"
