Food is good and place is nice but the acoustics are so bad, it is imposible to have a conversation because you can only hear people in other tables shouting.

Experience was great. My only complaint is that we shared 5/6 small plates and they all came at once. Perhaps the waiting staff should ask if people would prefer a staggered service.

I thought the Sunday feast was lovely. The food was delicious, we couldn’t possibly try everything so will be back. The ambiance was great, especially with the live music, such a lovely addition. The staff were very attentive and very polite. I don’t have a bad word to say. We really enjoyed it and will be coming back soon.

Good for a casual dinner. Portions are quite generous, we had 2 starters and 2 mains, no room left for dessert.
We expected portions to be much smaller so it was a nice surprise.
Nice interior finishes and accommodating staff.

Having eaten at Cecconis in Brooklyn New York and receiving the most amazing service in what can only be described as breathtaking venue, we knew it would be hard to live up to. However, we felt quite rushed as if it was an in and out system. It was a Friday night so it was obviously busy but I don’t think this can be used as an excuse. We were told you get ‘allocated’ a time slot per table which again is fine but a little more care could be taken when relaying this to a customer. Won’t be going back but the food was fine.

As we were shown to a centre aisle table there were others avaliable on the side with more comfortable seating. I asked to be seated on the more comfortable seating but was told it was not suitable for 4 people only to find half an hour later that the same table I had requested had 4 people comfortably seated!! Other than that the restaurant and food were excellent .

It's my third time going here, the first two occassions when I visited the service were good but on third occassion was not so good, staff were not that attentive and take a while to served you, not sure whether it is because its Mother's Day and busy. Foodwise are still good.

Lovely atmosphere and lighting but the food was a big disappointment - it was all pretty tasteless and we all had to cover it in Chili oil and salt and pepper to eat it. The salmon carpaccio was worst and had watery unpleasant taste. Desserts were great

Food is fine, but considering the price, we would expected a good service at least. However, waitresses lack of enthusiasm, do not know their menu, ignore you when you try to call them like you are annoying them.
Drink a big bottle of water before going if you don’t wanna die a thirst.

As a friend of cecconis, I get 50% most months which is an amazing offer - I go regularly with clients for lunch. I decided to go in the evening for the first time. The email I have says the 50% off runs to 7pm. My table booking was at 6:15. My usual pasta dish was extremely salty. I flagged to the waiter and he immediately removed from the bill. When I asked for the bill, it showed the full price despite me flagging on my booking that I had a key ring. I showed my key ring and got a revised bill but receive 2 bills. One with 50% off for dishes ordered up to 7pm and another for full price items ordered after 7pm. I said that the email I receive does not have any T&Cs saying that anything ordered after 7pm would be covered. I thought a table booking prior to 7pm would be sufficient. I was told that it was my fault that it wasn’t clear enough and they would not discount anything orders after 7pm. They seem to think they are very clear about how it works - they are not! What a ridiculous system. Fine if they want to work that way but at least tell customers in the email with the offer or at the beginning of the meal before items are ordered.
I will be taking my business else where. It’s a shame because the food tams service overall tends to be exceptional.

A wonderful vibrant place with very attentive service. Noise levels were a bit high tonight but we actually don’t mind that. Food was excellent and Cecconi’s will be on our list when we next visit the area. Overall a very pleasant experience.

The food was lovely, the restaurant has a beautiful interior and a lovely atmosphere. This would be lovely for a date as the tables aren’t crammed in, there’s low lighting with candles making it feel intimate. However, we were really let down with the service despite the abundance of staff.

Upon entering staff friendly and inviting. Drinks seem to take a long time, on both delivery and ordering. This does seem to be the theme in London plenty of waitstaff but only 1 person at the bar.
Our waitress was very accommodating and pleasant, though other staff not as quick. Manager seemed more interested in the gossip with other staff members rather that seeing what was going on in the room.
All our food was decent with the exception of the zucchini fries, the oil tasted old and fishy either the use the same oil for everything or the oil was fortified.
One concern as manager was not paying attention a customer was vaping as we ate. I found this unacceptable! I did express this to him but only came back some what apologetic.
I love the one in Brooklyn this one needs more attention to detail.

Amazing food, amazing service, amazing atmosphere. The best Italian I've eaten in London for a very long time. We got the cacio & pepe pasta for the table (incredible), burrata, a truffle pizza and salad... and the arancini are to die for. Wine is very reasonable too. You must go here!!

Our table was 45 minutes late, and during this time we did not receive one apology, and they somehow tried to insist it was our fault. We had called to inform them we would be 15 minutes late, which they confirmed was fine, but when we arrived they claimed this call never happened, although I showed my phone log to show it did. We had to attend an event after so by the time we sat down we only had 45 minutes to order and eat, once again without them with them giving not even the slightest care to the situation being their fault, but instead ours. Food was ok, but rushed.
