“Went 3 times in 2 weeks.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

We stayed in Kensington for a week and then returned to London prior to coming back to the USA for a night and stayed at the Rembrandt hotel (next door to the Orsini). Following a very busy touring day 4 of us stopped in for a late lunch one afternoon. Having been to London many times (& I lived in London for 10 years many years ago), we were more than impressed with the quality of the food, staff, service and overall ambience. We returned for a party of 8 the following evening and everyone was equally impressed. It is one of the best value for money fine restaurants we have found in our travels. With our party, several shared appetizers, all had an entree and we had many bottles of wine. I think we spent 40pounds a head (including a heathy tip). We also returned for dinner for our last evening in England. Again the food was excellent. The food is authentically Italian and lived up to our expectations once again. The owner made time to chat with us and he even joined us in an after dinner Limoncello.. A fabulous experience all every time.

“First night in London.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Nice dinner within walking distance from our hotel, Aster House. Across from the V&A and down the street from Harrods. Great service and friendly staff.

“Amazing Italian Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

This was by far the best food we have had in London so far. We went the first time for a late lunch. We had pastas, salads, and an eggplant dish. All were fantastic. The second time was just for coffee and cake. And again the food was incredible. We had a chocolate almond cake and a lemon cake. The almond cake was great but the lemon cake was to die for. Being as I have traveled to different parts of Italy I was suprised that the best italian food I had tasted was in London. Also the service was incredible, the workers were so genuinely gracious. We definitely will be returning before our trip is over.

“A relaxing Italian lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

We went to Orsini after having spent the early morning at the Italian Consulate. We needed a bit of rest and a good Italian late lunch.
My wife and I both had starters and mains from the Chef's Specials Menu.
Everything was just perfect, from the home made focaccia bread to the main pasta dishes. To conclude Torta Caprese and Torta al Limone were amazing.
Everything was enjoyed with plenty of Prosecco and Sparkling water.
Will definitely go back when we go back to London to take the children to the V&A Museum.

“Excellent service and friendly staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

My friend and I came from Canada and stayed a week at the Rembrandt hotel.
As my friend is Italian we decided to have an espresso there and after that we ate there nearly everyday.
They treated us very well and the portions were adequate and the deserts excellent.
Nice family atmosphere.
Hello from the Canadian ladies to Luca, Mario and Armando and to Salvatore the owner.
They made our trip very enjoyable.
