Great food and super ambiance. Be careful to insist on a good table there are some not perfect ones. But this is a good high end Italian but sometimes feels like it knows it's good and doesn't make the effort others do.

Whenever staying in Belgravia we always have a meal at least once a trip here. Giovanni is a great host and we eat very well. Might be an idea though to change the menu occasionally!

We took advantage that this is the low season in London to just pop in, as a neighbour, in this usually very busy restaurant, for a fast dinner. The "receptionist hostess" was very welcoming and we were seated in a few minutes at a nice table in the back lounge, which look like a NYC restaurant. The service was very... More

This is a very good truly italian style restaurant in Knightsbridge, the most expensive area in London. The quality of food is very good, good presentation, all the staff is italian. They are efficient. It s a bit expensive but you re dining in a one michelin star restaurant.

Cannot praise them enough for their exquisite octopus salad and calf's liver dish. However, the service is quite frustrating as we had to repeat requests several times to different members of staff. They were however very accommodating during our last lunch visit and for that reason alone they have redeemed themselves.

We discovered Zafferano a few years ago by accident as we were getting our bearings while staying (as usual) at the Sheraton Park Tower in Knightsbridge. Liked the look of it and decided to try it out. We've been going back ever since whenever we're in London. Bookings are pretty much essential, although early or late in the evening you... More

Buzzing Knightsbridge Italian with great food and excellent service. Great Burrata starter and the best Veal Milanese I have had in years!! On warm and sunny days try to get a table outside!!

Happened to be staying on the Jumeriah hotel next door when the concierge recommended this restaurant. Not your usual Italian menu. Much tastier and more authentic with a great atmosphere and wonderful service.

We went for a late dinner on the terrace. The food is excellent. Had the best calfs liver ever. My colleague had linguini with truffles. the fresh shaved truffles had such a aroma. Great Italian wine and very professional service. Wonderful.

We went for dinner on a pretty glowing recommendation. The food was pretty good, but not great, especially when you consider the cost. (We all know London is expensive). The wine list is very good. The restaurant is divided into two parts. When we arrived, although there were open tables and other people in the front half, we were seated... More
