I saw that next to the cuisine served, trip advisor has put gluten free. It is much more than that. The food is skillfully prepared and delicious with gluten free options...

The best and most consistent formal Italian restaurant with prices to match. The menu varies (especially the specials/truffles section in the back). Full and fully priced wine list. Their crab pasta is amazing, though it's a seasonal choice.

Had not been to Zafferano for a long time, but the food was definitely as good as ever. Best Bellini in London and my chargrilled tuna was superb. Food was eye wateringly expensive, but it was well presented and beautifully cooked. Service a bit sloppy at times but overall a good evening.

Italian traditional food, excellent quality, albeit overpriced. Super wine selection. Fish is recommended, especially seafood pasta - linguine with shellfish.

Good desserts,maven though I would avoid the tiramisu and... More

We had a great evening here, service was excellent even though it was 9.45 by the time we arrived. Food was sublime. *Must try the lobster linguine.

This restaurant is worth the price! The pasta dishes are excellent and full of flavor. The fish (especially the halibut) is excellent. The service was outstanding from start to finish. One of the best Italian restaurants I've ever eaten in. Highly recommended.

Took a young lady friend there, had cocktails at the bar and then a fine dining experience. Wonderful friendly staff, the barman even shared his recipe for the Mojito I had. The food was excellent well prepared and so well presented on the plate, I had sea bass and my friend had the duck. She couldn't make her mind up... More
