Disinterested bordering on arrogant staff. Probably the worst pizza I’ve ever had in my life. Bitter, acrid, and so lacking in flavour that I wondered if it could have possibly been cooked by a trained Chef? My tomato ‘salad’ was half a tomato sliced with...More

A good place for a simple casual pasta with a glass of the house red. Prefer the lighter, tomato based sauces to the creamy ones. spaghetti caprese with tuna and olives is my favourite so far. Not alta cuccina but a good reliable local.

Il Borgo didn't disappoint us The dinner excellent, staff OK . The wine very good, but the beer didn't please me. Two complaints: The (Italian) music too loud for our taste. And the front door squeaks loudly.

We were aiming for the restaurant next door which seemed crowded and fussy, but instead found this gem. Had plenty of space, great service, nice bread basket and great dinner for the whole family.

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
