    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

    Recommended by friends has been a disappointment. Soundproofing is very poor. It is imposible to hold a conversation without shouting; tables for two people lack tablecloth, and there is not plate to put the bread. The food and service was correct.

    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.

    The concierge team are traditionally female and very lovely. The waiters are traditionally male, Italian, and the worst part of the experience. Yet one can't ignore the tremendous feelings of class and occasion that comes with dining at Cecconi's. And the food isn't too bad, either.

    We had brunch there and in most cases it is hard to go wrong with eggs and things. the juices were freshly made and tasted healthy. The service was great. It is just a lovely way of starting the sunday or whilst contemplating how to tackle the Royal Academy. Service was good and efficient.

    Most enjoyable lunch, not cheap but price reflects quality of food and service. Very busy lunchtime, with a real buzzy atmosphere, which we enjoyed. Very busy waiters were attentive without us being aware, always a good sign. This was our first visit to Cecconi's and will not be our last. Could not fault this restaurant. Highly recommended.

    I booked a table in Cecconi for an anniversary dinner with my fiancée. The food was great and the service absolutely outstanding! The only downside was that it was also quite noisy (authentic Italian :)) It is quite pricey as well but that's not surprising for a restaurant in the middle of Mayfair. I would recommend the restaurant and especially their Vitello Tonnato - very hard to find in London, esp. that delicious!

    I first ate at Cecconis about 30 years ago. It was good then and the standards have not slipped. They have re-decorated however ;-). The Vitello Tunnato I started with was sublime The pappardelle with rabbit was nice too. Wine selection is very good and well priced. Service is efficient and well trained. Atmosphere is busy but tables are far apart so not a problem.

    Four of us dined at Cecconi's after the theatre the other night and it was the perfect restaurant to have some wine and a main course. The only downside was that we ended up being only one of two tables left and the staff were clearing and cleaning around us.

    Another superb traditional Italian supper at Cecconis. With such good food - artichoke ravioli served with sage butter (what else?) was simply delicious and service is professional and friendly and with the right amount of timing from ordering to eating. Long may it continue to do so.
