Ive been to many restaurants but this one is the worst. The food is really overpriced and not that good. I can smell any truffle. It is like eating a paper. The portions of food are very small comparing to the price. You can go...More

It is always a pleasure to go back to Zafferano. This is the restaurant that many years ago made me discover how a simple burrata salad with the right balsamic vinegar can be heaven on earth.

Very good Italian food, wine, service and atmosphere. Pastas and meat dishes are authentic but of very high quality ingredients and excellent flavours.

Since my last visit, this restaurant has really deteriorated. The food was very average with the exception of the beef cheeks but the crab salad, broccoli soup and even the desserts were below par. The staff didn't seem to know what they were doing. The...More

Found our dining experience slightly disappointing. The last time we were there was in 2003 and as we were back in London we thought we should go back. Sometimes when a restaurant hasn’t changed it’s a good thing but this place now is tired with...More

Nice place, a long timer restaurant, one of the better know. Italian places in London. Service is good, Italian speaking staff, menu not big, but good quality. Beef cheeks, pasta, tiramisu- were all nice. Wine selection is quite good too.

Home to the vast majority of embassies and diplomatic
residences in London, sophisticated and upscale
Belgravia also boasts a wealth of luxury hotels, fine
dining restaurants, and some of the city’s most stroll
worthy lanes. While the prices here are high, taking a
leisurely stroll through the streets of picturesque
and elegant white stucco houses is free. Hyde Park and
the Buckingham Palace Gardens are only a stone's throw
