We went to Frantoio yet again last weekend and as always, it was superb. Proper Italian restaurant in Chelsea; bustling and fun; food superb. Always worth taking the wine recommendation from the maître-d, really knows his stuff. Specials on the blackboard, always get a big...More

We had dinner recently at Frantoio and we're extremely disappointed with both the food and the service. The head waiter/owner is pretentious and rude. We waited almost an hour for our main course to arrive and when it did there was no apology. We would...More

We hadn't booked but thankfully they found a space for us. The home made lasanga was really good but bettered by the friendliness of the staff and atmosphere of the restaurant.

Excellent unpretentious Italian set in a rather unglamorous row of shops in a 60's block. Owner Bucci makes returning regulars (of which there are many) and newcomers feel equally welcome. Solid traditional menu, but it is the extensive daily specials blackboard which stands out. Wine...More

Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's
upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops,
eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at
its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely
unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this
showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price
tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down
pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal
