Food not as super hot as usual.
Bar staff distracted - took more time than usual for service.
Still a good night and looking forward to coming back soon.

Very nice for a rendezvous boys for lunch or dinner. The seating can be very uncomfortable especially if no cushions to support your back on the couches .
Otherwise excellent

Everything was great and super tasty, my main was really good, aubergine ravioli, but the desserts were far the best part of the night. We couldn’t decide between them, so we ordered the cheesecake, profiterole and a cream that I can not remember the name, all of them just perfect! Heaven !!

The waiter was lethargic and hardly spoke. He actually looked ill. I often go to Cecconis. Sadly the worst experience I’ve had in all the years I’ve been going.

We hadn’t been to Cecconi’s for a couple of years. It was very busy and a good atmosphere. We were given a table by the window for two people, nothing wrong with that, but they didn’t have table cloths on, giving it a cafe theme. The menu had changed since previous, obviously, but we noticed the yummy dishes of old not there, I suppose people now demand a change to vegan, etc.
Also, our waitress was very sullen, efficient but lacking any contact and interaction.

Quite a queue to get into the restaurant and to wait to be seated - not a great first impression. It was so noisy you couldn't hear each other. I felt like the food was nice but a plate of pasta with hardly any mushrooms is not worth £25. Service was good. Shame as I'd heard such great things but my experience wasn't great.

Cecconi's is a London jewel. Nestled in the heart of Mayfair across from the back entrance to the RA, it serves the highest quality breakfasts and lunches available in town. Its dinner are also good but insanely busy and loud. Not for the faint hearted. And what I also love is that you can walk in and perch at the bar for a great meal as well for a good price served by very competent staff. A top choice for London any time.

Dramatically different from when I was last here 15 years ago - a very buzzy atmosphere with many tables and a bar - service was excellent - assured and friendly - food also excellent - upmarket Italian - not cheqp but worth it - the experience was only marred by the three 'gentlemen' at the next table whose loud conversation throughout lunch was peppered by expletives presumably due to a poor education and limited vocabulary

I hadn't visited Cecconis for a few years where the food was excellent and the service fastidious. The food was superb again, but for the price, could have been slightly better. My Calamari Fritti was well cooked and seasoned, but not delicate like it should be. The Zuccini Fritti were slightly too thin which made the taste of the Zuccini too faint to offset the batter and oil. My crab raviol, however, did live up to expectations. The wine list is, as one would expect, wweghted towards Italian but the selection was very good and the prices fair.

The ambience is always wonderful with an ecclectic mix of people and an appropriate murmur of other people talking. The ambient light was a little too dark and even had younger people reaching for the torches on their phones to be able to read the menu. Even for a romantic dinner, it would have been hard to see your partner's eyes and appreciate them. Just a tas more brightness would have been perfect.

The service on this occasionan, however, was really not to standard and I was vexing between 2 adn 3 stars. They just seemed, in our area, one waiter short and our wine glasses sometimes remained emoty for quite some time; which wouldn't be a problem except that our wine bottles were removed from the table so we had to wait to be served. The time to take orders seemed quite extended as well.. and there vacant tables around us as well.. But even on entry and leaving, there seemed a deference to the patrons and leaving/picking up coats from the hosts seemed to take longer than it shoudl.

It is still a great restaurant, however, it isn't cheap or even moderatly priced by any means and I will go back again, but in as eager anticipation as this visit. It could have just been an off night

This restaurant is consistently excellent. I’ve been using it for many years and never had a bad experience. The food (in particular the crab ravioli) on Thursday was exceptional.

Food was delicious, very fresh and tasty. Restaurant was very well decorated and clean. The receptionist was very friendly and efficient. The only criticism is that the service was a bit slow. However, it wasn’t enough to put me off going back, I’d just allow extra time.

Brilliant as always. Although it does tend to get too noisy at times and sometimes the lighting is not sufficient. Staff very friendly and welcoming.
