My Pappardelle with wild Mushrooms and grilled calamari was really excellent.... More

Zafferano was recommended by some friends who had eaten there many times and it did not disappoint. The appetizers, pasta and main course were excellent. The atmosphere was very romantic and the service was impeccable. We will definitely eat there again the next time we visit London.

this was the first time I had been here slightly surprised at some of the reviews- sure it is not cheap at all but the service was good and friendly- the roasted cod I had was good and the salad enjoyable- most of the clientele clearly did not have much to do as I had had a late lunch and... More

Have been here many times over the years. It has become lacklustre and the food certainly did not taste as great as it once did. It is expensive. Excellent wine list. Friendly staff. Painless booking.

The restaurant side was full, we had the table at the bar/lounge side therefore we probably did not feel like the restaurant atmosphere. I was told that restaurant is famous in London but i had better food at different places. The location is centered. See bass was good but not that special.

We went for my birthday a few days a go. The place is in a nice location and that is the reason for prices so high considering that the portions are very small for the money we paid. The food was tasty, although the salad was very salty. They give us a good selection of bread but no butter or... More

Excellent food, especially the Linguine with steak which was so wonderful in taste and aroma that everyone near me looked at my food with their eyes detailing their envy. It was an excellent meal, however it was very expensive.

Zafferano was once considered chic (it is in the grandest bit of Knightsbridge) but really has seen better days., and has really been overtaken by the wonderful culinary revolution that London continues to enjoy. I hadn't been there for a while and thought I'd check it out for a late lunch, having an appointment nearby. Oh lord. Although the restaurant... More
