Trends have come and gone on London’s iconic Kings Road, but one jewel remains in the crown that is the World’s End, the restaurant known as La Famiglia. Created by the godfather of Italian chefs, Alvaro Maccioni, it first opened over thirty five years ago. This is as authentic cuisine as anyone will get outside of Tuscany.
The food is made from the finest, freshest, seasonal produce, with game such as wild boar, rabbit and venison.
The ‘olio extra vergine di olivia’ is perfected from the Maccioni’s own olive groves in Italy. Carciofini fritti (deep fried baby artichokes); Capelli d’angelo all’olio tartufato (angle hair egg pasta with truffle oil and parmesan); Vitello tonnato (thinly sliced veal with tuna mayonnaise) and Arista al cinghiale (roast wild boar with rosemary, garlic and olive oil) are just some of La Famiglia’s classic dishes.

Very welcoming, lovely aspect at back of the restaurant, kind and attentive waiters, food very good. You can tell that it is run by an Italian family who do their best for you. I would think it is a mainstay for the locality,and that people frequent it regulary, it is a home from home !!

Lots of babies. Some of them crying. Too hot. Waiters are not smiling. Like they are not happy with their working conditions. The food is not so good. Average. Still can not beat Signor Sassi or Scalinis.

What a pleasant surprise! Booked after reading online reviews and when we arrived all we could see was a nearly empty front room. But the main dining room in the back was buzzing! Fabulous service, great sense of humor, delightful food and wine. Other than tons of kids and families (well it is called La Famiglia...) we really enjoyed our experience here.

Authentic Italian restaurant - I am sure it can’t have changed much in the last 50 years and I hope it doesn’t in the next 50. Food, ambience and service excellent and price as anticipated.

Heaves with atmosphere, feeling of people having a thoroughly good time. Bright ambience. As a starter I have enjoyed the whitebait but the helping is so generous it fills one up before the main course. This time I took the rocket and parmesan, tasty and a better balance. I nearly always have the chicken cooked in a brick with mustard sauce. Delicious and unique. Excellent and varied wine. The Puglian wine very good value. Service warm but discreet. We shared a dessert. Three courses even with a modest starter is substantial. A great place to take visitors from abroad.

What a great find, a true family run restaurant, amazing service and gorgeous food. We had children and a vegetarian in our party and everyone loved it. The level of service is not something you get everywhere! Thoroughly recommend!

Ambiance: great - food: hit or miss- service: they could use a smile, the waiters are too serious and we felt like some of the work was a chore.

A restaurant I use as often as I am able. Food up to the usual high standard. A minor ( one star ) markdown related to the scrumptious looking deserts which my friend was keen to try but the lack lustre somewhat bored description given ended in us both passing up on deserts. Otherwise hard to beat as a quality local restaurant which I travel a long distance to frequent

The place is quite nice for a get together, loud, cosy space: tables are close to one another. The food was average, flavors were bland - you wouldn't go there for good Italian food.

The food, atmosphere and excellent location make it a special place but at prices more associated with restaurants situated in less glamorous parts of London.
