Location and contact

A classic, rustic Italian all-day restaurant and deli, offering the very best of Italian food and fresh pasta from acclaimed chef Theo Randall. Theo's Simple Italian in Earl's Court, is the kind of place you can go for a full three-course meal with friends or a plate of pasta and a glass of wine by yourself. From the moment you walk in you are treated like old friends with the sort of service sadly lacking in a lot of restaurants. Charming Italian staff are on hand to help you choose from the many regionally inspired dishes. As its name suggests, this is simple Italian food but done well.

I had dinner at Theo's on a rainy evening. Staying at a close by hotel and looking for a nice Italian dinner. Really good pappardelle al ragù at a fair price supported by excellent service and a nice environment

I came here while staying locally after noticing the amazing Valentines day set menu deal. I didn't really think much about it though other than something to fill me up. When the food arrived it really made me take notice though. London's focus on aesthetics...More

When we arrived, we were not heartily welcomed, but they looked down their nose upon us. Service was by Russions, who felt basically too good to be serving on us. They were more interested to gossip between themselves than to actually take orders etc. It...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
