We stopped in here for lunch as we were staying at a nearby hotel. The service and the food were both very good. It’s right across the street from the Victoria and Albert museum, worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Just steps from the Rembrandt Hotel, is this lovely family run Italian restaurant. Small but not cramped, from the moment we entered it felt cozy. Our waitress was warm and genuine. Our bruschetta starer, the bronsini special and taglietelle alla genovese were all outstanding. Perfect...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
