Summary

To a “smart Chelsea crowd” this delightful-looking stalwart is a “perennial favourite” (as it was for Princess Di when she was alive) with Italian cooking they say is “always good”. It’s pricey though, and the overall value equation for those without deep pockets is questionable. It inspires less and less feedback – perhaps Richard Caring’s Caprice group have forgotten they own it?

Summary

Once a favourite of Princess Di’s, this “romantic” Italian stalwart in Chelsea is “just about keeping up appearances” but doesn’t delight everyone. To its fans it’s “great fun” (“not too noisy but not too silent”) and with acceptable cuisine, but to detractors service is so so and “the food has been a disappointment of late”.

Summary

Thanks to its “lovely and romantic” interior, this “appealing” Chelsea old-timer has been a “special” favourite since time immemorial (it was once famously Princess Di’s top spot). Its Italian cuisine has slipped notably in recent times though: “preparation could be vastly improved”.

Summary

This “very, very Chelsea” haunt – once famously Princess Di’s fave – is “taking time to settle in after a major makeover” in 2014; some fans – “not crazy about the new decor” – still applaud its “classic” Italian cuisine, but others feel it’s become “a little disappointing”.
