Cafe Montpeliano, in Knightsbridge Near Harrods

Very good, not quite gourmet, but really good Italian cuisine, friendly staff, in pleasant enough surroundings - pictures of luminaries past and present line the walls. Unpretentious and a good choice for a night when you merely want to have a very pleasant meal without spending lots of time and/or... read more

I went for dinner to Montpelianos with my friends and yet again the service, the food was very good. I love the atmosphere there and the fact that the waiters have been working there for ever also adds to the charm of the property. Had a beef carpaccio for starters which was very tasty and well presented, asparagus which was... More

I don't really get the fuss about this place. The food was ok, nothing special but nothing you would complain about. It's not cheap, though not crazy money either. It's a premium location so I guess you pay for that. It's very bright so not romantic, and the staff again are fine, though not especially helpful. Overall the place is... More

Conveniently located on a side street just across from Harrods, Montepoliano is a nice Italian restaurant with good food and excellent service. It was festively decorated for Christmas with evergreens on the ceiling. For lunch my husband had the lamb special and I had the spaghetti vongole. Both were very good. For dessert, we had the Tiramisu and the profiteroles…... More

My wife and I went here for the first time a week ago and found it better than any of the other restaurants we have been to in this area of London and one of the best restaurants we have been to this year. We stay in this area of London 3 or 4 times a year, so we have... More

An American friend from Virginia was in London recently and after we had been to a private viewing and cocktail party at Bonhams auction house (which is virtually next door) he suggested we have dinner at this restaurant. I had never eaten here before. What a pleasant surprise it was! The welcome was warm. The service was excellent and attentive... More

Great Italian food and service. Particularly nice on a summers day when they open the large roof light (back half of the restaurant).

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighborhood Profile
Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
