Not overly impressed. Only good thing was it was right opposite the theatre.

The food was amazing and also the service. Just a shame there was a very loud lady across from us who we could hear through out. Also not keen on having the service charge added directly to the bill.

Too noisy for my standards, we had to wait for 20min before we could sit down, food came super fast though which was appreciated.

I was recommended this place by a friend and unfortunately it didn't reflect the expectation I had. The table was right by the stairs and so every time someone came up or down we were either bumped into or overheard the many arguments and prep happening behind the scenes between manager and staff. The service was poor - I kept having to ask for things, like water and for our order to be taken. The pizza itself was good but the drinks weren't fairly priced and it seemed to lack the basic tools that make a good restaurant and service. Overall, I wouldn't return.

Diabolical service. Great pizza. Ridiculously overpriced. Never again. An insult to Cecconi’s Mayfair.

Don’t book this place! Terrible restaurant! Despite the booking we had to wait 15 minutes for our table, there was only 1 waiter for the entire room. Cleaning was the bear minimum. We ordered some pizzas and the £9 bufala was the same size of a slice of normal pizza, while for £3 extra pound you could get a normal pizza, but due to the lack of service available of course we didn’t know. Will never go back! There are many other places better that this is london

Great energy, but a bit too loud. Food is great!! Lovely for a more chill dinner with friends. Pizzas are amazing and good selection of wines and cocktails. Considering it’s London: very good quality-price!

I went to Cecconi’s to meet a friend who was over half hour late. I was sat at the bar and the bartender , Ismael ( if that’s the right spelling ) has been taking me company.
Really nice and friendly guy. Cocktails were good, I asked for a cocktails that wasn’t on the menu but he managed to make it!
I had calamari and pizza and they were delicious.
Just one bad thing: the ladies toilet were a mess and in one of them the flushing wasn’t working .
I will anyways go back again!

The service was abysmal which really ruined the meal for us. Waiter took our started before we were finished them, we stopped them and they put it back down. They then bought the mains out before we had finished the starters/before taking them away. Took ages to give us a bill/take payment. The food was okay - zucchini fries were soggy, arancini was lovely.

Ordered two pizzas and they both looked and tasted wonderful. Came in at a busy time but we were well looked after. Food came promptly which was great as we were between shows at the Palace Theatre. Would definitely visit again if visiting the theatre.

Staff were lovely and food was good. Ladies toilets were not up to standard and restaurant was cramped. Considering rising cases I was very surprised by the lack of distancing between tables.

Very average experience - food was 5/10 at best - service was fine but felt the waiting staff were stretched. Pizzas are way better than the pasta which was completley tasteless. Not a bad ambience but was so dark I couldn't see the food I was eating and going to the loo was trecherous unless you have a light on your moblie!

Me and my wife love Cecconi's, we took our daughter there for the first time and she loved it too, staff are great and food is as close to proper Italian cuisine as you'll get and I should know I am married to an Italian.

Disappointed by my experience at Cecconis - got served carbonara and said I thought the bacon was undercooked. It was taken away and not given back and I was still charged for it. I would have expected them to maybe cook it a little longer then bring it back, or for them to not have taken it! I was then charged £12 for a few bites of food which was a really shame.

I’ve been going here to a few years and usually pretty happy. Today less so. The food was not impressive. The calamari was over cooked and rubbery. The zucchini fritti was also over cooked. We both had the fennel sausage pizza which was ok.
The service was very slow. Seems like they are short staffed.
Probably won’t return for a while.

The food here is amazing and definitely worth visiting for but the service really lets it down, they’re so slow at ordering your drink and then bought over the wrong drink twice. If they had more staff then the place would be great. Has a very old school Italian vibe with dimmed lights and small tables.

Main issues were the pasta dishes. Carbonara was awful (wouldn’t even call it a carbonara), and the caccio e pepe was dull. Pizza was good.
There was only one, very clearly overworked, waitress working.

Food was amazing as always, this was my 3rd time at the restaurant and the service was terrible. We sat down at 8:30 and no one came to take our drinks until 9:00. We couldn’t see any waiters to ask for drinks. Once we had our order taken, the server was extremely rude and had a terrible attitude. We then got starters and it took about 30 minutes for our dirty plates to be removed from the table, this was the same after our main courses. Having ordered desserts 25 minutes after our mains it then took another 30 minutes for the card machine to arrive at our table. This service was not acceptable and the waiters were more interested in dancing together around the restaurant than focusing on their main priorities the customers. Unfortunately I will not be returning due to the above points even though the food is delicious. Not a happy customer.
