Very authentic

The foods was very very good. We asked for something simple that wasn't on the menu and they created something much much more delicious and on target.

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

The place is famous for pizzas and accommodating big groups. Also you can find roasted/grilled fish on the menu for a healthier option. Always busy and fun atmosphere.

Santa Lucia is an amazing italian restaurant nestled in lovely Chelsea/Fulham neighborhood. The atmosphere is very typical, from the decor to the loud italian staff, love it. I had eggplant pasta and my friend had seafood pasta: both tasted amazing and fresh. Would definitely recommend it, you can even have a very long table underground if you are a big... More

Santa Lucia delivers the best pizza in the region and transports you to Italia. The pizza by the metre presentation always leaves first-timers' eyes bulging and mouth-watering in brilliant delight. The ristorante delivers an authentic atmosphere and warm welcome through the enthusiastic staff from the friendly hostess to the servers to the pizza chef proudly displaying his master class Naples-honed...

Hmmm after hearing raving reviews from a friend, I thought we would come here for a special celebration. There was only one waitress, who seemed to struggle to serve several tables. It took a long time to order, which we didn't mind too much. However the most disappointing was the food. My boyfriend's pizza had a soggy bottom!?!?!?!? That makes... 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.
