    Yesterday was really not good. We have been to your place so many times over the last 10 years and last night was bad. the food was below average: tartare not cut properly, still nerves and veins. gnocchi (home made- I bought it, tomato sauce canned type, Vitelli tomato below average, pasta bolo not good- we had to wait 35 mn after the starters. What happened? You were a reference for us and for many friends and quality has been going down for the last 6 months. really disappointed. We are Italian , and we know about Italian food and yesterday, it was bad. New chef, or no cook present yesterday. Moreover , it was our son's bday, what a disappointment. Thank you

    It's always good. Not a place to go if you are on a diet as the pastas are irresistable. More "skinny" choices would be appreciated.

    Probably one of the worst Italian meals I’ve had in London. Octopus for starters tasted like burnt toast. The spaghetti just tasted of tomato sauce that came out of a can and the lobster was not fresh at all. Literally do not understand how people come here. The service was not bad but because they’re understaffed, there’s not much you can expect from the limited availability the staff have. Ambiance was awful, couldn’t hear anything, bad acoustics and squashed tables next to each other.

    Overall the ambiance of cecconis was nice, very fashionable people as well as the hosts were kind enough to put two tables together as we were a party of 7. As a result, we ordered about 7 plates of pasta but the pasta was undercooked and almost every single plate lacked flavor and salt. the ricotta didn’t have enough honey and truffle, overall the service was not good enough because it was packed with people, and not one single song played the whole time. The price is very expensive for what the food has to offer. Would not recommend or come back.

    Incredibly friendly. Superb staff. We had to wait a little longer than usual due to a kitchen mix up but they proactively managed it without us actually realising there was a problem. Great team work, energetic atmosphere and authentic Italian food.

    Couldn’t find our booking until we showed our confirmation email, staff seem to work to their own rhythm rather than the customers. Food was good but not at the same standard as previous visits. Have been several times in past but will probably not return.

    Cecconi's is always fabulous. Great food and service. Try the Sicilian prawns or any of the excellent pastas. The qual egg and tuna cicchetti is great with drinks. The Vitelli tomato starter or the veal Milanese are each more than enough for two. Fun atmosphere. It never disappoints. Many thanks to Anna, Ricardo and everyone for another lovely meal.

    I hadn’t been to Cecconi for a long time but chose to go there as I came up to London to take my wife to the theatre for a special occasion. As I expected the food was excellent. Unfortunately when I ordered a bottle of red wine the waiter showed me the bottle which was not the wine I ordered. When I pointed out this the waiter then said he didn’t have the wine I ordered. I asked him why he had not told me before bringing a random bottle as a replacement. He actually thought I would not notice. Eventually I ordered another bottle of wine from a 2016 vintage and again he brought me another bottle but from a different vintage. This sort of behaviour/service is unacceptable from any restaurant and most certainly not from a restaurant with the reputation of Cecconi.

    This place has gone down hill over the years and it’s a real shame. I used to love coming here and now I won’t be going again. The staff - all seemed really flustered, jittery and rushed as soon as we arrived despite the restaurant only being half full. The person at the desk (who sat us) forgot our names twice, bumped into my husband when we were sitting down and then blocked us into the restaurant when we were trying to exit whilst they were talking to other guests - we couldn’t physically pass and it was so noisy in there, they couldn’t hear us first time round so I had to say “excuse me” loudly to get by. Similar experience when visiting the WC - you’re made to feel like you’re in the staff’s way as they’re running around or walking really fast from the kitchen (one staff member nearly collided into me with avo on toast on a plate as they’d rather have kept power walking than stopping to let a paying customer walk past them!) I felt really sorry for the staff tbh. Food - even though we were 15 mins early ;we told them through open table, and when we arrived that we needed to leave at a certain time) we were there for 2 hours and only had a starter and main. We gave up trying to order dessert because we couldn’t get the staff’s attention. The starter and main were nowhere near as good as they used to be and there’s something about the food that feels like it’s been pre-made in a factory somewhere, it doesn’t taste fresh and the textures of the sauce and pastas are off. You can tell most of it is not fresh anymore. Drinks - it says on their website and their Google business listing they’re a cocktail bar but when we eventually got the cocktail menu they have about 10 cocktails available and most of them are Prosecco based. We stuck with a negroni each, which were lovely but again, trying to get anyone’s attention was hard so we didn’t have many. It’s a real shame this happened. I hope it changes because this place used to be great.

    Good food, bad service. Waited quite long to be seated when I had a reservation despite of having empty tables. Then it took close to 45’ for someone to take the food order.
