We visited this fantastic little restaurant at the weekend on the occasion of a small family reunion. I hadn't seen my Canadian cousin for 40 years and by chance she was over visiting a friend. I wanted somewhere to catch up with her which was close to the V & A and picked out Orsini as we all love Italian... More

My husband and I enjoyed a delicious meal last night, before going on to a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. Service was excellent and staff friendly and knowledgeable. All the food was freshly cooked, and we had generous portions. Very good value for money. Pinot Grigio was superb, and Manabrea even better! Great start to a lovely weekend in... More

We had a wonderful experience. Food was very good, prices fair, service was quick. It was clean. The chicken and peppers with olives was my favorite.

My Husband and I enjoyed dinner here on Tuesday and it was superb. We were in early at 4.30 and the first diners as expected at that time, though by the time we left at 6.15, all tables were taken downstairs and I see why. The food is fresh and so tasty, well priced and the staff are very welcoming... More

Orsini is a nice small restaurant, most suitable for couples or small parties. Decoration and the atmosphere in the restaurant is nice. It was packed when we popped in, but after a five minutes of waiting we got a table. Service was good but we had to wait quite long time for the food. I had a pasta carbonara which... More

This was just round the corner from where we were staying so thought we would try it. I often judge a place by how they deal with problems and could not fault Armando and the team. I ordered a lasagne and my wife pasta and pesto. When I got mine the lasagne was not as hot as I like in... More

Basic, beautiful food. Don't expect silver service, but eat the flavours of Italy. Paper napkins, great wine and delivered from the kitchen piping hot, aroma to kill and taste to make hear sing. Come out of the V&A and into Orsini across the road. Well almost!! Yummy. Take the family it won't break the bank, take your partner or just... More

As advertised, this is a small family run restaurant featuring mostly homemade dishes. Service is attentive but the food is not impressive and a bit pricey for dishes you could just as well prepare at home.

Thank pacmon

Staying in Knightsbridge

Neighbourhood Profile
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 city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.
