Absolutely delicious and authentic Italian food. Sea bass ravioli best I’ve ever had. Quite pricey for Italian food but a delightfully secluded setting in the heart of Knightsbridge.

Cosy atmospheric restaurant with very friendly service and staff.Food was authentic without unnecessary embellishment ( good natural homely Italian food) nothing pretentious. A little pricey but then you are just off Hyde park in Knightsbridge. Absolutely worth a visit .

Keeping strongly in line with traditional Italian cuisine, Osteria Romana was a quirky and exciting experience with a fantastic ambience and great food. The presentation had a rustic edge and everything about the service and the space felt very intimate. I highly recommend this restaurant. There were a few other stand out elements of the experience, but I won’t mention them here so that there are a few surprises for those who decide to visit.

We went shortly after lockdown had eased. The service was top-notch. Our servers and the staff made sure we were comfortable. We sat outside and it began to rain so they joined tables and umbrellas together to maintain the outside ambience. We went for a birthday lunch and staff also sang for us. Food was all really good - we tried lamb chops, cacio e pepe, the gnocchi with truffle sauce starter, seabass, and pumpkin ravioli. Everyone was really happy with the food. It's situated inside an alley way and is an ideal spot for lunch.

Loved being able to eat out for this first time since the Pandemic restrictions ended, the Gnocchi truffle is a dish I will be returning for. Staff were super friendly and happy to describe their dishes which helped us choose what to eat.

We went to Osteria for a birthday lunch a few weeks ago. The food was great, we went for the caccio e peppe, though overall the vegetarian options are somewhat limited. The service was great, we accidentally ordered a dish with prosciutto in it and they changed it for us free of charge. The staff are friendly and polite.
