Average food and very brightly lit unpleasant atmosphere . Service ok - functional but not very personable. Disappointing
Wedding anniversary trip and Caraffini being one of our favourite Italians in London we are always looked after. The food is always good and they have a few dishes we both love. Scampi & Avocado in a cheesy sauce with rice is fabulous and the Creme Brûlée is the best we’ve tasted anywhere . Service is always excellent and the restaurant is rarely quiet.
Went there because it was suggested by friends who live close to the restaurant. Caraffini was perfectly acceptable. Everything was good. The veal limon was nice and I found the orange segments in caramel sauce pudding intriguing. Overall, a nice local Italian place. If I lived in that neighborhood, I would probably go there often. But it’s not a place I would seek out.
I have eaten at Caraffini Restaurant several times and have always had a very good experience. This time during the Pandemic I have to say they handled the situation very well I was happy with the measures that they have put in place to keep staff an diners safe. As always the food and service was first class.
Lovely but could do with a few mor reasonably priced wine
Classic Italian food we had Spinach Soup homemade and the special pasta Paglia e Fieno which were excellent. Service is always very good.
Good quality italian food in a nice and safe atmosphere
Brilliant as usual.
Always great value with great service.
The sardines and veal were excellent.
Delicious, traditional Italian food, served quickly & unobtrusively.
They offer “eat out and help out” in the website
But they said is no longer available
The should not offer something they won’t do
The excuse was: it was only for August.
But as many restaurants are still doing it, I thought they did too. Because the offered!
Not coming back
Everything was excellent, with warmth and caring. Perfect intervals between courses. Not slow nor rushed. And the food of course was very good
A beautiful restaurant, attentive staff and fresh, home made authentic Italian. Will be recommending to friends and will return in the the future. Went well above and beyond expectations.
We love Caraffini. It’s a firm family favourite and we have celebrated many milestones there. As always, the food was delicious and the service excellent. Thank you from the C-Ss!
Lovely food and excellent pasta dishes. Very enjoyable.
The food was only OK - sadly I had a very salty cod dish but kybhsiband did enjoy his beef.
Very friendly staff and in difficult circumstances because of covid they did very well
First visit for 13 years. Food was as delicious as it was when we used to eat here. Great to see all the staff again. would recommend Caraffinis. A Superb Resturant.
Always an amazing Italian culinary experience . So pleased to see everyone at Carraffini
still staying positive in their business during these difficult times.
Caraffini’s is that perfect combination of delicious food, made from excellent quality produce, with a sprinkling of exceptional service. The staff could not have been more helpful or friendly (and accommodating to our elderly relative’s needs). Great ambience and Covid safety both reassuring and understated. All in all, the perfect lunch. Would highly recommend this lovely family restaurant.
The food is always superb. Service unobtrusive and efficient. I have eaten here several times and am never disappointed.
Excellent food - one of the best Italian restaurants in London.
We have lived in Pimlico for a few years and passed this restaurant many times. This is our first visit, and we’ll certainly be back. Great atmosphere and good food.
Ambience is better in the evening.
Food great. Wine expensive by the glass.
Great food great service, the two essential elements when eating out!
Great food and service.
Great value for money.
The food was delicious and fresh. It is priced reasonably! I will definitely go back!
After a 700 mile car journey our first thought was to have dinner at Carafinni. It did not disappoint. The service & food were outstanding as always.
Great to be back! Lovely dinner. Staff were super helpful.
Amazing meal matched with incredible service as always. Nothing is too big or small an ask. Love this place
Love this restaurant! Great food! It was our first experience back in a restaurant since COVID-19 and we felt really safe with them! Their food had always been amazing and still is. It’s good quality produce, beautifully cooked with that lovely caring service which a good Italian can only offer!
We always have a lovely experience dining at Caraffini. The food is consistently delicious, service is excellent and on the four occasions we have dined there since lockdown lifted, we have felt very safe given how carefully they are operating the restaurant due to covid.
Delicious food, attentive staff and careful attention to hygiene and safety.
Simply an amazing experience and the food is incredible. The wonderful staff are always welcoming and ensure you are comfortable and looked after. Couldn't recommend this place higher to anyone!!
A favourite of ours. Never a disappointment
One of our all time favourites. They’re family!
