Harden's survey result
A datedly glamorous, “bustling” Chelsea trat’ that celebrated its half centenary two years ago, and which has over the years welcomed into its delightful back garden the likes of Princess Margaret, Peter Sellers, Brigitte Bardot and Jack Nicholson. One or two diehard fans still think of it as “London’s best Italian” and say “nothing changes” here; but ratings support those who feel it’s “nowhere near as good as it once was years ago”, “expensive” for what it is, and on its worst days, quite “poor”. Top Tip: still a favourite option for Chelsea folk with kids in tow.
“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”.
La Famiglia Restaurant Diner Reviews
"hasn't changed in probably 50 years and it needs to. very uninspiring food poorly executed. strange service."
"The food is good, but not necessarily outstanding. Pleasant enough to be an old standby"
"Old stager, food was a bit ordinary but forgiven for being an old favorite... like you forgive your old dog"
