We read the ratings on this restaurant, and chose it for a convenient neighborhood dinner on our jet-lagged first day. It was perfect. Small, family atmosphere, very good food and wine, both our entrees were a hit. Will be back!

Have been meaning to write a review for a while. We have visited many times over the years often when going to the V&A. It’s a proper Italian with lovely food and friendly service. Long may it continue!

I was split between three and four stars and eventually went with the latter, firstly because the dish I ordered was very plain as I was looking for simplicity on a jet-lag stomach and secondly because there was absolutely nothing to be found lacking in...More

We'd been meaning to try this place for a while. They are really friendly and helpful, and accommodated the wheelchair well. We enjoyed the antipasti platter, but the mains? Risotto with stringy vegetables; Bolognaise a little lack lustre. The Carbonara was good, but that's just...More

We visited the Orsini restaurant for a lunch. It’s an unpretentious, family type place with nice staff and prompt service. Considering its touristic location , I would say it’s pretty good. We tried their risotto and our kid took meatballs, both delicious. Their house wine...More

When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop,
they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined
tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And
when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already
got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the
perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion
walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the
ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this
