This “elegantly decorated, modern Italian” with a terrace overlooking the river near the redeveloped Battersea Power Station is “useful in the neighbourhood” – a “safe bet”, albeit “expensive for what it is”. High-profile chef Francesco Mazzei parted company with the owners, D&D London, in early 2023, boosting the sentiment that this potentially spectacular venue has never fully realised its potential.

The “best terrace in London” – on the south bank of the Thames near the newly redeveloped Battersea Power Station – provides “an amazing setting” for what should be a magnificent Italian restaurant. But it’s hard to escape the feeling that restaurant group D&D London with their high-profile chef Francesco Mazzei have missed a trick, and that “far better food should be had at this price”.

“Good food” from eminent southern Italian chef Francesco Mazzei and a “spectacular terrace with views over the river” are the calling cards of this spacious D&D London venue near Battersea Power Station. On a sunny day, though, lunch on the terrazzo can witness “the whole riverside teeming with building workers from the huge power station site on their lunch break”.

“The location, near Battersea Power Station, absolutely makes this venue” – a 120-seater run by D&D London, which boasts fine views of the Thames and a big outside terrace. By comparison, “food and service are, well… fine”.

For 33 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).

"Food is good if a little expensive. Service needs tightening so eradicate small errors (e.g. discarded stones from my cocktail not removed until I put them on plate from my Main course)."
