Food and service were excellent. Very friendly and welcoming. We had the pre theatre menu which we felt was good value
Private, exclusive feel, quiet, delicious, fab service.
damn fine xmas lunch thank you for making everything so perfect
Great christmas dinner with all the family. Next time in London, this restaurant will be on my list
My husband and I came to this restaurant for a quick bite before heading to the Royal Albert Hall for our anniversary.
We ordered a Club Sandwich each and 2 side dishes ‘Arancini balls and Calamari’. For an Italian restaurant the food was not up to 5 star standard. The Arancini balls were terribly bland with no seasoning (just salt on the coating) and the calamari was over cooked.
We also spotted around 12 flies nested on the wall right near where we were sitting.
We left very disappointed after having to pay just under £100 for food we did not enjoy 😔
A lovely spot for dinner with friends - very good food and excellent service - a little bit lacking in atmosphere as wasn’t full but we made up for that. Expensive but a lovely spot for a special event
Lovely venue. Each staff contact was in itself was good but we were left unattended for long periods. Food average in quality but expensive.
Excellent food, delicious tuna and very attentive service. Will definitely visit again !
They kept the kitchen open for us which we appreciated alot
The food was OK. Crab ravioli good ( if thrown on the plate) whilst starters and deserts average.
But 2star michelin price for averagely decent bistrot food constitutes poor value. The restaurant was only a quarter full at lunchtime - I am not surpised.
The food was solid. Service was even better. The setting is OK - neither great nor bad. Overall it was decent although there are better values nearby.
Fabulous food service and place
Exceptional food and service to match as you would expect. An abundance of complimentary olives, bruschetta, choices of bread and antipasti. We enjoyed the baked seabass. Excellent choice for an exquisite pre-theatre dinner and located within 5 minutes walking distance to the Albert Hall. The staff were professional and very friendly.
After the show at the Albert Hall we popped back for a night cap and was welcomed with open arms. We were not rushed and enjoyed the warm summers evening of Kensington under heated parasols. The Hotel Baglioni is first class and the pricing at the restaurant is appropriate for the establishment.
Excellent food and great staff. Will definitely be back again
Disappointing evening overall. Came due to the high rating. Ambience was nice, upscale. We were one of first at 7:30. Service was nice but when I asked what was in lasagna was told “beef”. I think I was looking for a bit more of a description. Appetizers were good, Parma and melon was good, burrata was ok. Main courses were a disaster. Eggplant parmigiana and lasagna were not hot, not warm, cold!! They really looked like they were leftovers from the day before. I had rigatoni carbonara which was under cooked, only warm in middle but cold outside! Flavor was nice but didn’t make up for cold and undercooked. I spoke to manager who apologized and offered to give me some money back or to come back again which I appreciated. Overall will not go back and was greatly disappointed.
This was the perfect place to visit before our concert at Royal Albert Hall. They took amazing care of us and the food was delicious.
Very good food but restaurant lacked atmosphere. Service on terrace was poor considering number of customers. Restaurant service much better and knowledgeable waiter recommended good wines by the glass.
Went here with the intent of ordering pasta dishes that we’ve had prior. We’re sadly disappointed with the quality of the dishes, didn’t live up to what we’ve experienced at the restaurant prior. The waiter and manager seemed annoyed when discussing my allergies and it felt like an inconvenience to them.
Good food and great service. Good vegetarian choice too!
The food and service were excellent. Our only complaint was that the décor is dated and the dining area has no windows at all. It was the only detraction to an otherwise good experience.
We were hotel guests at the Baglioni - also very disappointing!
Very disappointed in both the service and the food. The food was very bland and uninspired. The service was poor - We waited approximately 10 minutes for a waiter after being seated (and the restaurant was almost empty). Asked for a wine list and was rebuffed to try a recommended glass by the captain - decided at this point that I didn't want to splurge on a bottle and took the recommendation on the glass of red. Not great, but insulting at £14 per glass. The best part of the meal was the amuse bouche. After the amuse bouche, we started with the Burrata which came with a few few roasted tomatoes and greens, but no dressing or other flavorings - had to ask for some balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I had the Sea Bass Au gratin which was an over cooked thin piece of fish smothered in pistachio bread crumbs with no hint of truffle or any other flavor. My wife had the Color Play with John Dory which consisted if fried fish nuggets on a plate of different colored sauces which all tasted the same - bland. For dessert we had the chocolate bonet with vanilla and cinnamon ice cream - at least the ice cream was good, but no sign of the vanilla, just cinnamon. Even the dinner rolls weren't worth eating - not warm and didn't appear fresh. There was a better bread selection on the breakfast buffet. We had some fabulous meals during our stay in London (even our £15 fixed price pre-theater meal), but this was not one of them. Felt very disappointed even with the £85 credit that we used from our hotel booking. Avoid at all costs.
We had dinner there just after a concert in Royal Albert Hall. A ten minute walk, and we were there. The best sea bass we have ever tastet.
Food was great - good portions, innovative but accessible menu. Service was excellent and it is a nice, upmarket but not stuffy, restaurant space. It's in a great location for the royal albert hall (where we were going on to). My only complaint is that a gin and tonic cost £15! This is a bit ridiculous given that was also the price of my pasta meal. I can understand expensive cocktails in this area - but just for a gin and tonic that's not reasonable.
As expected from a five star establishment the food and service was outstanding.
My two were young children were looked after especially well.
I could not recommend Brunello high enough.
Well done and thank you to all the staff for our evening so enjoyable.
Amazing Italian food we have not eaten for ages, like "risotto con ossobuco", a dish you can find only in the Milan area. All perfectly cooked, with a courteous and attentive service. Very much recommended.
I took my Grandchildren prior to going to the Royal Abet Hall and we thoroughly enjoyed our visit . The food was just right for the children who were impressed with the level of service and how they wee treated like " small gown ups"
Had the pleasure of dining at Brunello for the first time late Friday evening after a performance at Royal Albert Hall. The service was extremely friendly and professional, and we had an absolutely charming waitress. The chef and staff are Italian and all fabulous in their respective roles. We had a lovely and romantic corner booth and the food was outstanding. We would absolutely recommend Brunello to anyone who appreciates delicious Italian food & top service - we will be returning to enjoy another meal there soon.
Excellent restaurant, the food is superb. I would recommend for both casual dining and special occasions.
We booked this restaurant because it said it was convenient for the Royal Albert Hall. We had a really enjoyable meal prior to the concert and was very pleased when we realised it was within such short walking distance to the Royal Albert Hall. Food was excellent as was the service and ambiance. Would definitely recommend it and indeed go again if staying in that area of Lonndon.
We had to wait over 45 min for our food. I understand why the place was empty. Very expensive for plain average food. The waiter could not understand a word of english... Very disappointing, we will not be returning.
Very nice place but awful customer service and food. What a waste.
Very slow, poor service, lippy waiter, pasta accompanying octopus ragout seemed only parboiled - it was thick, tough and still cold from being stored in the fridge.
My wife and I were staying at the Baglioni zhotel in Kensington and visited their reataurant BRUNELLO fo dinner and breakfast. Good authentic Italian food with very professional and friendly service. Ideal for a pre-performance dinner prior to the Albert Hall. Reasonsonablr pre-performance fixed menu. Would Recommend
After multiple courses, and wine, and great conversation with our serving team, we can heartily recommend this restaurant. Every bite was delicious and the wine choice by the sommelier was right on!
We went for a pre-theatre dinner. The pre-dinner menu is £25p/p but the extras were very expensive. A simple tomato juice £8.50.
Food was good. Well prepared and nicely presented.
Service was very good.
We booked the restaurant for a meal after a show at the Royal Albert Hall, upon arrival we were met straight away with no waiting, we had arrived early so had a couple of drinks at the bar with swift attendance from the bar staff. Once our table was ready the staff were courteous and quick to get us seated, the meal itself was fine with the only issue being the main course on the vegetarian option basically consisting of leaves, otherwise it was very good.
Only real gripe would be the fact that the menu was specific for Valentines day, but we was unaware of the that on booking, and had checked couple of days before.
Overall had a good dining experience, would return.
We enjoyed our pre-theatre (very convenient for Albert Hall) meal but it was expensive overall. Food was delicious but the main course of beautiful pasta was served with a very sparse amount of octopus in the sauce and the profiterole dessert was just one profiterole. We were glad of the very tasty petit fours! Service was excellent - but then we were the only ones in the restaurant!!
