    The food was okay - the service a little off hand and the acoustics in the restaurant were awful. Foodwise the crab ravioli was a little too al dente - the spinach too salty and the apple and almond dessert was not really the best. The best part was when my friend's salmon, quail eggs and beetroot salad arrived with no beetroot and we were told that the chef was looking for it and then took 10 minutes to bring a dish of beetroot. Impressed? No not really. Will not be rushing back anytime soon.

    Took my grandaughter with family for breakfast before an appointment on Monday morning for 9 30 booking. Arrived early and table was ready so we're seated straight away. Waiting for one of our party to arrive and was offered fruit juice while waiting. Had a lovely breakfast, good service and very good with children. Have been here several time for different occasions including lunch and evening dinners. Always enjoy our food and service at Ceconnis and would recommend Thoroughly enjoyable breakfast

    Outstanding restaurant. Great food. Focused and attentive service. However, the seating is too dense to have a proper conversation, check in area is too small. Suggest eliminating a few tables so people can actually have some sense of privacy and enlarging the checkin, cloak room area so it is more welcoming. Less can truly be more! Overall, a very good pick as a restaurant. Could be better if it was more open and inviting.

    I had expected something a little more formal than what we got in terms of services and ambience etc, however the hustle and bustle created a great buzz and really enjoyable atmosphere. The service was a little rough around the edges but still efficient and attentive. great people watching a mix of well heeled Londoners and wealthy internationals. good for a birthday with friends or a group catch up, probably not if you're a new couple or trying to impress your latest squeeze after 7 years together it was fine for us.

    I went to Cecconi's for dinner with two friends. The service was great from the moment I stepped in. Other than a few times when I couldn't get hold of a waiter, it was amazing. The food was defintely worth its price. My only complaint would be that the Mojito I got was too bitter for my taste but thats just a personal dislike. I complained and was given a sweetening syrup immediately. I would definitely recommend this reataurant. Seems like a great place for date night.

    I have been to Cecconi's in Miami and absolutely loved it. Went to Cecconi's London for a special celebration and was extremely disappointed. There is a clear difference between the service regulars/wealthy/influent customers receive, and the service us "lesser" people receive. The server never came, we were never offered the special (and heard other tables being told), the waitress was clearly disinterested. I was expecting good food, good service- only got a big bill.

    Very nice restaurant with truly delicious and high quality food. Very friendly service. We booked London especially to experience the nice food and atmosphere of Cecconi's for another time, since we enjoyed it so much during our last London trip. We look forward to visiting Cecconi's again next time we'll go to London!

    Don't normally write feedback but as Cecconis has always been one of my favourite restaurants I feel the need to after a truly awful meal there on Sunday afternoon. Chicken paillard was, as my freidn described, basically chicken beaten into a pizza base. The tagliatelle bolognese was terrible. Pasta too thick, grainy and hard

    Cecconi's is the best Italian restaurant in London I visited. A lot of varieties, main course comes in two sizes. wine list not over priced. Very good decor, excellent location. great service, although the wine was not chilled enough, but the food, will make up for everything. we ordered 3 starters, 2 small main course and 1 side. the sizes are very reasonably and there wasn't one outstanding dish, because everything was perfect!!!!!! also when the table was up for turnaround, the manager kindly moved me and my friend to the bar which we can continue with our conversation and dessert. which was a very smart option.

    Service has previously been good - but this time we were not asked for our order for 30 mins (as only 3 of our 4 diners had arrived. but would still expect to be asked) which spoiled the service somewhat. Narrowly missed out on 4 stars - will use again

    We had lunch on Friday 1st August at Cecconi's. The plushy emerald sofas and faded Venetian grandeur all made this Mayfair location feel rather special. The waiters were fantastically accommodating of the two out of four vegetarians in our party and very knowledgeable about all the dishes. The food was delicious, flavoured simply but delightfully. The hustle and bustle of the restaurant added to the atmosphere. Overall it was a fantastic lunch which made us feel we were in a glamorous Italian city.
