Our favourite Italian restaurant in whole London

From a warm welcome by Crisha and her friendly colleagues, to lovely loaf of homemade foccacia, then wine, pasta, pizza....Sta Lucia is truly special. We keep going back for last ten years and we still love it. Thank you Crisha and everyone at Sta Lucia, you all are amazing!

I ve been there once. The location is beautiful, good oven and beautiful interior. Regarding the food, Maybe I ve been unlucky, but the starter was absolutely below the expectation: bad tasting fried octopus, low quality arancini (and small). The pizza (al metro) was definitely below the expected quality, despite it was very good looking... I'd say 5 out of... More

I booked Santa Lucia for 5 on Sunday night . Was all done by email from their website but still could not find the booking on arrival. Fortunately there was space available on the ground floor ( basement is hot and stuffy to the point of making it really uncomfortable) Pizza by the yard was great as always, very crispy... More

A very good Pizza in London. All the ingredients were fresh. Very similiar to Napoletana. I will totally recommend it! I had a vegetarial "Calzone" and was Delicious! You can also find original italian products and beer. Brilliant While I'm staying in London and miss original italian Pizza, this is my place.

Make sure you visit soon. We visited over lunch with friends and each had pizza shared. The pizza is baked by the yard and is probably the very best i have had in London. We rushed away for the football but we would have been better Staying and enjoying desert.

Way better than Pizza Express etc. They have a big wood burning oven that gets pizzas cooked in less than 5 minutes. Great taste, service, wine. Buy your pizza by the foot, served on elevated wooden trays. ideal for sharing. Can get very busy at weekends, dont go downstairs unless you have to - atmosphere much bettr upstairs, or sit... More

Our first night in London this year. This excuse for a meal was so excruciatingly disappointing!! Undoubtedly the most vile, horribly overpriced, inedible pizza we have EVER attempted to eat. It is safely packed into the rubbish bin, never to be seen, not by us at least, ever again.

We visited Santa Lucia for a birthday meal and I was most disappointed. Service was not particularly friendly and certainly didn't justify the hefty 12.5% service charge that was automatically added to the bill. Wine by the glass was expensive and the food mediocre. The sharing platter of Italian meats was OK but the equivalent of their garlic bread which... 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.
