It's a long walk from our home in Kensington but well worth it. This is the first time since their refurb and I love the bright, friendly style of the decor. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and were attentive and helpful throughout the meal. We'll definitely return soon.

Absolutely wonderful Italian food, typical Italian pudding tray. Good fun if it's your birthday. We've been going for years and it's much prettier since the refurb.

My mother booked for her birthday - my treat! We had been twenty years ago (it used to be great!). I called to amend the booking to add other guests as a surprise, I expressly asked the person I spoke to on the phone not to let my mother know that other people were coming, as it would be a...

I have been coming to La Famiglia since it first opened over 40 years ago by the famous Alvaro who sadly is no longer with us. It was always the best Italian restaurant in south west London and the standard of the food and simple decor are still superlative. The garden is now covered over and has become part of... More

Its amazing how some restaurants pass the test of time and get stronger and stronger! The restaurant is one of my favourite in London. All round good traditional Italian dishes for all different tastes. You will find simple, real and tasty option from throughout Italy. Their Spaghuetti al Vongole is probably one of the best ive ever had. The team... More

We lived in London 1994-98 and were within walking distance of LaF, making it our default go to. The service was always great - attentive friendly and informal. The food was excellent and everyone in the family had a separate favorite. We were back in London in June and stopped back in for Saturday family lunch to see what had... More

We were referred to this restaurant and we are certainly glad we took our friend's advice. Our friend is a distinguished chef. The restaurant is family run since 1966 and you can tell that there are a large number of family members still working there today. Nothing is a problem and the staff go out of their way to make...

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.
