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.
Thought I’d give this a second chance - as this used to be one of my favs - but as last time, food was a total disappointment. Oh well... won’t be coming back here again, such a shame!
This place was one of my favs - this time the food was cafe style average... so disappointed. I hope it was a blip ... but I am not sure I can forgive them...
What fabulous Italian food - so authentic and fresh - just delicious. Menu is very diverse - prices very reasonable and the ambiance - you feel as though you are in a small Italian village. Reservations a must.
Beautiful table in the garden, very friendly staff, great service and excellent Italian food. I loved it so much!
A great local Italian on a side street. Much bigger than it looks. Awesome pasta with porcini. Outside terrace was very pleasant
We had a delicious light lunch at this fabulous Italian. The staff were personable, attentive and charming, the atmosphere calm and the food excellent. What more could one ask for?
La famiglia maintains its high standards for service and food; a very welcoming atmosphere and attentive staff.
Authentic Italian Restaurant. 100% recommendable.
Luigi was a great waiter and the food was lovely. I recommend the seafood risotto!
Great place, great people and great food
Food here is always excellent - one of my favourite Italian restaurants in London for real Italian food. Great menu and fabulous seasonal selections. Great ambience but can be noisy for the non-Italian ears :)
We love coming to La Famiglia with our little boy and when we have family and friends visiting us. It is one of our favorite neighborhood places.
Excellent food, attentive service, divine desserts! Only slight negative was noise level but everything else was perfect!
Wonderful meal as usual, fantastic service.
We celebrated New Year and engagement of our friends and felt very spoiled. Deserts are not to be missed!
Authentic Italian food and excellent service. Highly recommend the spaghetti with Vongole
Amazing as always but so loud! And not in an old man way. The four of us are under 30, were reasonably sauced but could not hear each other on the small table. It was a Saturday night though and everything else was perfect, as it always is.
Great food, always very nice and seasonal menu is great. Always find it a bit noisy with tables a touch too close together, but still recommend it. Something to cut reflected sound in area at the back would be good
One of my favourites in London. And so kid friendly. Always come back here.
Excellent italian restaurant
Excellent food and very amiable service. Main problem is acoustics which makes it impossible to conduct a conversation (but I think this would NOT apply to inside at front so I would recommend avoid the outside covered area at the rear)
I love this restaurant, we live in the neighbourhood but they have unfortunately a bit of an attitude problem, service is sloppy sometimes and they never recognise you... but it’s still great. So Italian!
Found hair in my food. Not so pleasant!
Not a fan of Mourinho but apparently he has great taste when it comes to restaurants. Wonderful food and calm, posh atmosphere. The outdoor patio is particularly nice on a sunny day. Considerate service as well.
Typically Italian and wonderfully local ! This place has not changed from the first time I visited over 20 years ago! The staff are true professionals- not part time waiters. The clientele is a mix of British locals and Europeans which is refreshing in central London! Food was excellent- not fussy, plain and simple but wonderfully executed. An extensive wine list which was well priced for everyone’s budget. I won’t leave it another 20 years to revisit! Thank you for a delicious lunch !
Great atmosphere and food!
Very authentic Italian food, fresh ingredients and homely taste. The tomato salad and truffle pasta are awesome!
Beautifully decorated space with semi-roofed/outdoor area in the back garden.
Attentive, friendly and considerate service. Highly recommended.
This is he best Italian food you can fet
6 month wedding anniversary!!!
Very friendly and warmly restaurant. Perfect for family meals or friends get togethers or even a date. The food is really good italian quality and the service is super fast and efficient and very welcoming. Has lots of energy and really nice and cosy location. Would totally recommend.
Standards remain as polished as ever. Creature comforts excellent and staff obliging.
It's been a few years since I visited La Familglia. It hasn't lost any of its' atmosphere & the opportunity to sit outside on such a perfect Saturday night was fabulous. The parma ham was just right & the seafood risotto of a class that is hard to beat anywhere in the world. Thank you La Famiglia for making a good night great!
Was great meal as usual. The best Italian ever
It took them 40 minutes to take our order, an additional 40 minutes to bring the starters. Had to remind the waiter 3 times for the bottle we had ordered and when it came it was unusually warm. Food was salty, tables way to close together.... very very poor experience and we have been there very often but yesterday was the last time
We are returning fans of La Famiglia having visited in the 80’s! It was hectic as there was a wedding at this time however great service, amazing food!
We will be back!
Always fabulous! The food is the best Italian in London. X
Very pleasant environment but we felt we were a bit rushed. We booked for 2:30pm and arrived on time but before we were sat on the table we were told we had to order because the kitchen was closing in 10’. Two minutes later we sat at the table and another waiter said we had 5’. The starters were exquisite but mains were just ok and the desserts delicious. I have mixed feeling about this one.
Had fab evening with son and husband . Was recommended by a local friend - excellent food, wine and ambiance - family friendly - will return
Nice restaurant, good food with decent portions.
I wasn’t amazed by the restaurant.
I felt rushed - 4 courses served within an hour :-(
Fabulous- ambience, food, service , value fir money - will definitely be back
