Had a wonderful dinner and great service. The calamari was cooked to perfection and the linguini with clam sauce was excellent. The only reason not given five stars is the tables are very close to each other and to get up others tables have to be moved while diners eating

I rarely go to Italian restaurants outside of Italy given my imodest cooking skills when it comes to pasta, I make killer pasta and cook better than what I get in most Italian restaurants in London.

One of my favourite Italian restaurants. Enjoyed lobster pasta with fantastic wine. Not spacious, but definitely excellent food.

Very nice place off Harrods in Knightsbridge. The food was authentic and the pasta cooked perfectly. However, the Linguine Vongole could do with some more clams. The tiramisu was the best I have tasted outside Italy - very light. Wine list for central London is approachable. Service is nice but warning its quintessential London place with very tight table placements... More

Just ate at Sale e Pepe. Delicious food and great quality. Very recommended. I recommend the "Gnocchi alla Sorrentina", which is delicious gnocchi with tomatoes, motzarela and basil.

A small restaurant on a small side street, producing the freshest and most delicious Italian dishes. It is always packed, you need a reservation.

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.
