This diminutive but “highly enjoyable” Venetian trattoria off Chelsea’s King’s Road (named in honour of the Doge who laid out Venice’s Piazza San Marco) is “really popular with the locals” for its “great buzz”, led by the “loud and funny waiters”. Founder Roberto Colussi died five years ago, but it has carried on in the way he intended, and will celebrate its 40th anniversary next year.

“There’s a real buzz and warmth” to this tiny but “intimate” Venetian trattoria off the King’s Road, which packs in well-heeled Chelsea locals and their children. Roberto Colussi, who founded it in 1984, died four years ago, but its regulars continue to recommend it as “great for a night with good friends”. “The cooking is amazing given its minute kitchen”, but overall “you don’t really go to Ziani’s for the food”.

Squashed trattoria off the King’s Road that’s long been a staple of the Chelsea crowd, who find it fun packing in like sardines next to their neighbours. In the year that saw the death of founder and long-term owner, Roberto Colussi, feedback has become a little more mixed than once it was, but it’s still tipped by fans as a “favourite”, especially by those with kids in tow.

For 32 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).
