Manicomio - Chelsea
Manicomio Chelsea opened its doors in 2003. It is set on the buzzy Duke of York Square, set back from Sloane Square and the iconic Kings Road. Housed in a historic Grade II listed building that was formerly the Royal military asylum- the origin of Manicomio’s playful name (Italian for madhouse).
Renowned for serving simple yet elegant Italian food in the attractive dining room, bar and – weather permitting- the expansive terrace. The adjoining Manicomio Café offers a pared-down version of the restaurant’s menu- available to enjoy in either the café, conservatory, courtyard or terrace or as take away.
Manicomio’s enthusiastic passion for all things Italy- with a strong focus on provenance, quality and taste - has seen the Manicomio family grow to two more successful sites, each with their own identity- Manicomio in St Pauls and Canto Corvino in Spitalfields.

Terrific Italian food with delightful outdoor area that is quiet and has heaters. Very good menu range and interesting wine list. A great Chelsea favourite. Prices slightly above average but generally justified by the quality of cooking.
The service was condescending and not very very welcoming
Lovely atmosphere sitting outside. Busy but the waiter was very attentive.
The tuna carpaccio was fabulous and the Burrata on sour dough with anchovies was simple but very tasty!
Hadn't been there in years and was so pleasantly surprised. Brilliant! Great ambiance and fantastic service.
Great food and such incredibly friendly staff, always top notch
Lovely meal al fresco - food was good as usual just a bit longer to wait as it was very busy. A firm local favourite
Excellent food and a very good setting
Very nice food in a comfortable, convenient setting. They make the most of the outdoor space, and the service is friendly and efficient. Nice menu but do investigate the “specials” - some real gems.
Booking experience seamless. Good distancing so felt safe.
Attentive staff. Excellent menu and wine list. Food exceptional and delightful Sicilian organic white to go with it. Excellent value.
I'm around this area all the time but first time I've been here - loved it. Great staff, beautiful atmosphere, delicious food. Will be a regular!
Ambience, food, service and location are top, look forward to our next trip to Manicomio!
Excellent service and good food at Manicomio Chelsea. Lovely spot also, I particularly appreciate the ability to book outside which is rare in London.
Very enjoyable, simple but delicious dinner on two recent occasions. Discreet but efficient and friendly service.
We were looking for a good end of holiday supper with our teenage daughter. The menu had plenty of choice for all of us. Pasta for the teenager and monk fish for us were all delicious washed down with a bottle of Vermentino, bringing pleasant memories of Tuscany. We all enjoyed our evening.
Love that the restaurant lets you book outside seating! Lovely atmosphere and food
An absolutely fabulous restaurant with a great menu (not trying to be all things to all people), a lovely touch from the waiting staff, a great venue whether outside or in and some creative ways of presenting the humble G&T. Forget the waistline and try the Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Tart to finish off the meal. You'll definitely go back for more.
Delicious lunch on the well designed outside terrace
Great service and good food what more could you want !!
Great food/service as always
A family favourite
Well worth visiting
Good service, heated outdoor patio, delicious food, and socially distanced. Would definitely recommend.
Lovely meal and great service!!
Excellent food and service and the waiter went out of his way to make it a special occasion as it was our wedding anniversary.
There was one negative experience as we were shown to our table by the receptionist. She said ‘We are turning the tables this evening so you have to leave by 8.00” I replied that according to their rules and conditions for the reservation we were entitled to a 2 hour slot and therefore wouldn’t have to finish until 8.30! She acknowledged I was right but without any apology. I don’t think her attitude was at all appropriate to welcome guests.
Wonderful food, friendly staff, great location. Always a pleasure coming here!
Really enjoyable evening, with delightful menu and wine, and good service. the grilled seafood spedini in particular was wonderful
Outstanding service and attention to detail - as always
I was very disappointed to see that the restaurant is not taking ANY precautions about COVID. They said that because it’s not government policy they chose not to have their employees wearing a mask unless the client asks them to. I asked them to and they ignored it.
It was my one of my favourite restaurants but I won’t ever go again after this.
Great location and good food, but service was very wobbly. We kept having to call the waiter over since it took so long. And he forgot to put through the order for coffee and tea.
Great location to meet with friends. The food is delicious and a good selection of wines.
Great place and good friendly sevice but, aside from access directions to go to the lavatories, there was a TOTAL disregard for Covid requirements. No face coverings or visors worn by the staff, cutlery and glasses had been sitting at the tables before we got there, etc.
Quite an uncomfortable experience.
We had a particularly excellent waiter (called Patrick, I think), who looked after us brilliantly.
Sat outside on a warm summer's evening. Great service and wonderful food. Will definitely return.
Lovely to be back with great food and exceptional service. Catered well for kids as well.
Excellent food and service in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.
Service was incredible and food was delicious. I will absolutely be dining here again!
Good to be outside on a very hot evening. Good service and food. Excellent ambiance.
Excellent food, great service. Would go again
One of my favourite restaurants; great food, location, ambience and service :)
Staff was absolutely fantastic.
Very pleasant restaurant in great location. Food is good, a bit pricey. We were a group of 5 on Saturday night. I enjoyed it and definitely return.
