We book Valentines’ dinner @Pellicano and, to our surprise when we got there, the place ‘is closed for good’!!! How can Open Table accept reservations for a restaurant that has closed its doors?... and on a Friday night Valentine’s it was impossible to find another place to go... what a bummer!

Restaurant was closed - arrived to find doors shut. Disappointing you can still make bookings online many weeks after closure.

It was amazing to find out that I have not been to Pelicano for five years or so, but food was as good as ever. It was a bit pity that two wines I chose were not available, but the ones recommended by the owner were very good. Perhaps, it was good thing that my choices were not available. Anyway, all of my friends enjoyed the evening very much and I would definitely go back to Pelicano in the near future.

Despite having been to this restaurant many,many times over the years, I am somewhat disappointed that there never seems to be a hint of recognition for a returning customer. I like the restaurant despite seldom feeling warmly welcomed. The service is efficient and the food good. Better if served with a big smile!

So bad, that I would rather pay not to have eaten there. They put my bottle on another table and not top me up after waiting ages for them to, so I had to act or I’d be parched. The calamari wasn’t the best, but par. The veal cutlet was drier than the Sahara. Furthermore, I had to request for the bill not once, but twice. Moreover, they had garden chair cushions. In Chelsea, just why?

Had the black seafood ravioli as a main course. This was really good; however, the portion was too small for a main course.

Our go-to local Italian. The staff is always welcoming and the food is consistently very good. The Sardinian fare is a nice change to the usual Italian and it has a interesting wine list.

I love this restaurant.. it does Italian mainly sardinian food in a wholesome simple family way but with great flavour and fresh ingredients. So if you want a relaxed and delicious meal with some fabulous Sardinian wine this is the place. The staff are lovely.

A friend was staying at a nearby hotel. We had passed Pellicano returning home from another nearby restaurant. We rapped on the door and Marcello answered. He was charming as he explained the 19-year history of the restaurant.

We were seated immediately at a lovely round table. The waiter was attentive and informative. We shared a plate of fried calamari (not quite enough for three people, but very good). For starters we had a "rocket" salad; a mixed salad; and, a tomato salad. All were fresh and tasty.

For main plates, two diners had linguini and clams. The linguini was prepared "al dente"; the clams were small and tasty. The other diner had lamb chops that were prepared perfectly.

We shared an apple crostini; one diner had gelato. All were very good.

Throughout, service was attentive and friendly. A neighborhood gem.

yes great service and very flexible with the menu and what I ordered - I wanted prawn instead of crab and this was no problem. Just a great easy and lovely destination for a civilised lunch in Chelsea - don't tell everyone as we don't want to spoil it!!

Great local find, excellent service and wonderful food. Good menu choices and wine list. Couldn’t fault service and food quality. We were a party of four, arrived early but were seated straight away. Very attentive staff, we felt unhurried and enjoyed our evening out. Highly recommended.

I had not been to Pelican for a few years and decided to meet a friend there for lunch as it was located between us. Mistake. Maybe it was just an off day but it wasn't great. We shared the buffalo mozzeralla and tomato starter -- the mozzarella was good but the tomatoes were pale orange, small and hard, no taste and definitely not Italian. We both chose the veal milanese which is a favourite of both of us. It looked good but it was tough and the breading topping separated from the meat right away. Seems as if it was made way ahead of time. We always had to catch someone's eye for service, even ordering. Not sure I will go back.

Wonderful evening meal at Pellicano restaurant. We ordered the baby chicken and crab fresh pasta which were both delicious - although the pasta dish felt a little small compared to the chicken. The chicken was beautifully cooked and seasoned. Service was excellent and attentive, and we were very lucky to sit outside in the warm summer evening!

The service is always attentive, professional and at the right pace. The food is fresh, authentic and delicious. The menu choice is not too broad and not too narrow with a price range suiting most occasions. The outside seating is wonderful. Compliments to the team.

The food was good, but the service was not. The manager was very good, but his staff were slow and inattentive. This was especially noticeable as we were the only table inside the restaurant as it was early evening, a few people eating outside. The staff were hanging around in the doorway and I felt I had to beckon them to get any service, which I do not like to do.
