Fast functional family food

Very fast service, decent pasta dishes and a good value kids menu (£6.60 for breadsticks, main, ice cream/fruit salad plus a drink). Good for a quick family re-fuel.

With no HYGIEN rules but a wonderful to be place. Waiters sneezing or coughing several times in their hands then holding the glasses from the upper part of your glasses to serve you and not once or twice.......disgusting. Lovely atmospher and nice food. D cleanest is d one at St christopher's place.

We ate here on our last night of travelling Europe for a month. We made a reservation online, and a short walk from our hotel (near the tube station) we arrived and were seated. The food came fairly quickly and was of a good standard, the steak was cooked perfectly for medium rare and the Sea Bass just as good.... More

Went here for dinner prior to an evening event at the Science museum. Not usually a fan of high street chain type Italian places I was very surprised. It's extremely busy here and seems to have a lot of tourists eating here too so booking is recommended as people were queueing for a table. I had the seas bass which... More

We taste the menu : the starter was supposed to be a salad but instead of that it was like a tomato soup without flavor and in the middle was goat cheese... Main dish : ravioli with ricotta in small... More

Staying in South Kensington

Neighborhood Profile
South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall) such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming and cosmopolitan as it is reserved and residential, South Kensington is always a hit with visitors.
