Food always very good. It gets rightly very busy on match days such as today and you can see the pressure on the team to get food served. Sometimes food doesn’t all come out together, for example when some have pizza and others have pasta, but given the circumstances, this is still always a good place to eat

all good. very busy before a chelsea home game so best book. other than that the only comment from one of four of us was that the sauce for the pasta was a bit too creamy. it's a minor point

A disappointing experience at one of our go-to restaurants. Maybe a new chef, maybe a one-off experience, but well below the usual high standards. Simple bruschetta - usually fresh and delicious - was way too garlicky and soggy. Baked parmesan aubergine was warm in parts, possibly microwaved. My partner requested clams with white wine on spaghetti (done the last 2 times but unavailable this time) and was offered mussels instead. A bucket of mussels was served, no spaghetti, and without bread, but tasty nonetheless. The salmon was terribly overcooked and lifeless, and the side broccoli was either from a pack of frozen vegetables or boiled to oblivion. Last time I commented on the best salmon I’d eaten in London, this one was the worst. The spag bol was ok, but seemed a smaller (but still acceptable) portion. Overall very disappointing, but I will go back and try again, as it was such a surprise based on previous experiences

it's our favourite pre kick off restaurant befoe a Chelsea gane. Awesoe food, always super tasty, piping hot & pentliful. Great value and staff always very attentive, even when under pressure. Every memeber of the family finds something they love.

Only slight criticsm is that the waiting folk hand over the card machine with the additional tips button ready to be pushed (even after service has already been added to the bill). I'm not sure what the arrangement is but if the owners aren't handing their staff the service automatically, they should be - they do a great job. I

Most items you have asked our opinion of we’re very good however there was a noise problem, a continuing thumping throughout our mealtime which was more than distracting which was a pity as the staff worked so hard at making our time there memorable.

This was a great find in West London. The food was delicious and great value. The service left a lot to be desired! The staff were extremely friendly but we had to repeatedly ask for things: half the drinks order, black pepper, chilli flakes, milk for the tea... It was a shame but it wouldn’t stop us going back or recommending it to others. The chicken and Gorgonzola pasta was amazing, as was the calzone!

I haven't been to La Pappardella for a while but found it to be as good as I remembered it last time. My only gripe, which does happen every time I've been there, is that a service charge is always added to the bill (which is fine) but, when you pay by card, they ask you to leave a tip as well which I have always felt to be extremely annoying.

A robust Italian-cuisine menu: all the greats present and correct. Saltinbocca very good, although I think a carbohydrate side should be served with, rather than as an extra. Tiramisu was sublime.

Staff and manager were great! Super knowledgeable about gluten free options and cross contamination. I was offered gluten free pizza AND pasta as well as many appetizers and desserts. Possibly the best GF bolognese I’ve ever had. House Red Wine was better than some that I have had in high end steakhouses in the states. We’ve already planned a return trip for the pizza!
*i am a very sensitive celiac so this was beyond an amazing experience for me*
