My wife and I and our 11 year old son enjoyed a wonderful lunch here yesterday. All of the food was deliciously authentic. I've spent a lot of time in Italy over the years, and I would stand Papa Roma up against any of the...best restaurants in Italy that I've been to - its better than a great many of them in fact! Friendly, attentive service - fantastic hospitality. A wide and varied menu. The parmigiana is the best I've had, and the pizza di bosco...well, its not a national award winner for nothing - its a taste sensation! I've already recommended this place to many of my friends, and now I recommend to it to all of you too. My new favourite Italian restaurant!More

I have eaten at so many stunning restaurants but have never been driven to leave a review before. I guess when you are paying top dollar you expect absolutely exquisite excellence you could never expect to replicate in your own home EVER. But this place...is so small and unassuming. You would never expect to have such exceptional food served here... Better than any meal you've had before. But it was absolutely delicious. You know when you eat the food and it is so tasty that you think if you died here and now it would be worth it to experience this luxury of sensations? Well... this was it. Absolutely perfection. I am so grateful to the chef and the staff for giving me such an incredible experience in this place. I had the ravioli, followed by the cheesecake, and I would deffo recommend. I expected nothing. I got an amazing experience, thank you so much you guys for providing it to me xMore

Came for dinner with my boyfriend after a visit to the NHM. Food was quick, delicious and service was great. We shared the burrata to start then had a pizza and the king prawn spaghetti. Would definitely recommend!

Took my young family for lunch prior to heading to the NH museum which is around the corner. Had a fantastic meal including a delicious pizza and home made lasagne. Lovely hospitality, great service and good prices, especially considering the wealthy area. Desert was a...highlight, chocolate soufflé! Will definitely be visiting again when I’m next in the area.More

We were so happy to find a restaurant that wasn’t a chain near the hotel. After reading reviews we weren’t disappointed. They seated us in a heated area outside as we were “mixing” households. Absolutely delicious food, lovely lovely staff. They couldn’t do enough for...us and the children. We had starter, mains and desserts. The pizzas were soooo big but they let us take it home. Our waiter (the owner??) was lovely ! Highly recommend and please support them. They weren’t busy enoughMore

We had a wonderful leisurely lunch at this charming restaurant after a visit to one of the South Ken museums. Authentic Italian food and friendly service. Our mostly pasta main dishes were exceptional and the desserts divine. Evidently and understandably popular with the local Italian...community and a welcome escape to sunnier climes for locked down Londoners like ourselves! A real find. We won't hesitate to return when back in South Ken.More

A friend suggested this place to meet up since it wasn't too far from her work. We made reservations for four and got some wine and food. The food was pretty good and I liked the ambience. Service was okay, I felt like near the...end they were trying to usher us out quickly, but maybe we were taking too long and the restaurant was starting to get busy.More
