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.

This restaurant was a nice little surprise. Tucked away on Gloucester Road. Restauarant is small and intimate. Had a great pasta dish. Friendly service.

After a day of tours, we wanted a meal without a lot of waiting. Fancier Italian restaurant next door had a 45 minute wait, so we gave this place a try and they didn't disappoint. It is not impressive from the outside at all and...More

A mixed bag really. We had pre-booked so as to have time for a meal before a concert at the Albert Hall. Got there a bit early to find it all closed ( should have been open according to website). As there are loads of...More

This place seems to be designed to cater to tourists and other people who are unlikely to visit more than once so it doesn't bother to try hard to please. The food and wine OK but not delightful and the service is offhand at best....More

Great traditional Italian Menu. Nice wines. Very attentive and responsive service. Right in te middle of a very touristy area. Good for dinner before going to the Royal Albert Hall and also close to the Museums. A fun place

Originally going to Da Mario but it was closed, It seemed it wouldn't hurt to go to Il Borgo, just next door. To sum up: disappointing. The place doesn't seem clean and the food is, as the title says, below the average. Wouldn't go there...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
