GOOD Italian food. Great for locals in the vicinity . Enjoyed everything and the seating is comfortable
Great food, great staff
Food was outstanding- creative, unique and well presented. Delicious food, great personal service and a fabulous environment. Loved it
Very nice service. Langoustine pasta was delicious
First visit and won’t be my last. Good service and food reasonably priced.
Fab cocktail waiter, lovely venue, awesome food!
The service was terribly slow and nonchalant. We were ignored unless we waved at someone. Main course food portions were bizarrely small, compared to the huge starter of calamari my son had. Also the main course presentation could have been much better. Sorry, but not impressed. Also, for an Italian restaurant, the decor was strangely Japanese in feel.
We had a very, very nice Dinner indeed ,the Truffle Pasta and Calamari were outstanding ...
Very good Service indeed from the girl who served us .As a surprise we were given a Birthday Sparkler as well. Very sweet of them ,without being extra ordered and unexpected . Nice Chelsea ambiance ....Very recommendable...
Food is great service that day was a bit slow but overall experience was nice.
Fantastic food, great friendly service provided by knowledgeable staff with a good sense of humour. Would highly recommend a visit.
Nice, stylish Italian restaurant with friendly attentive staff. Food lovely, though pork belly a little tough!
Lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly but unobtrusive staff, good vegan options. Good value for an expensive area. Great for s special occasion.
Delightful atmosphere, friendly staff and delicious food. Really enjoyed our first visit! Won’t be our last:)
Nice chilled vibe with superb food. Will defiantly go again
The service was great, and the food and drinks were reasonably priced for the location.
Great restaurant... highly recommended!
The service was probably the highlight of our visit. I must say that sadly I was disappointed in the food. I felt that it was a little unimaginative and definitely overpriced. The portion of tagliatelle was a little novelle cuisine for some of my companions! A guest at our table had ordered the gnocci which was supposed to come with sausage. Unfortunately it did not so was basically just gnocci and sauce (pretty poor). The waitress did bring some sausage eventually. Overall I was underwhelmed and would not rush back. I have enjoyed a much higher standard of food elsewhere, often for a cheaper price. Good points were the waiting staff and the ambience. The cocktails were pretty good too.
Really buzzy place with friendly service and great Italian food. Burrata is amazing.
Lovely evening, good food and service, very good value
Given that this is a slightly odd place - is it a cocktail bar or a restaurant? - the surprise is that the food is really good, and the service too. Nothing fancy on the food front, but the Italian staples are really well done, and nicely presented too.
the food is good but the ambience doesn't combine with food...
Fresh and tasty food incredible array of cocktails, very pleasant staff
Amazing experience and food! Definitely a must in the kings road. Will certainly revisit very soon
Una ottima cena tra amici. Il locale è molto raffinato con un servizio impeccabile; grazie a Giulio, un giovane professionista del settore, abbiamo degustato diversi piatti e da italiani ci siamo sentiti davvero a casa, un menù ricco di prodotti italiani di alta qualità, ottimi vini e cocktail. Ci torneremo sicuramente.
We had a group of 10 in the private dining area. Every single aspect of our dining experience was perfect! The service, the drinks, the ambiance, the food and music was much more than we had expected. Thank you to the top notch team & Irene our server! The best!!
Wonderful experience!! amazing cocktails, delicious food and great service!! everything was truly good,I definitely recommend it to have a trip down the typical Italian flavors...and a special thanks to Simone who took care about us, making also the best cocktails ever drunk
Excellent service , atmosphere and food ! Would recommend this lovely neighborhood gem !
good quality ingredients and great cooking. very nice ambience..
Short menu of Genuine Italian food. Very nice place and attentive service. Will definitely go again
Food and service excellent! Atmosphere zero! We were pretty much the only people in that evening, which was a shame as this place has potential, hopefully they will step it up and still be around in a years time
Delicious food, excellent service, lovely ambiance.
What a great venue !! Couldn't speak more highly about this restaurant. Art-decor with nice ambience music (jazz) outstanding customer service and delicious food!
The service was excellent, and the food was both good and good value. The only down mark was the music. We had two elderly friends who struggled to hear the conversation over the music. Despite it being turned down once, it seemed to go up again whenever the record changed. That apart, a really nice venue.
..I went with a girl for a date and the place was very nice, with soft light, perfect modern style of the interiors and awesome service. One of the co-owners Giulio in particular was very kind and helpful in the choice of food and cocktails, which were amazing! ...as he suggested, the name "Ritorno" would mean "Come back".... I can say that for sure I'll visit again!
Great place, great food !
Delightful newly renovated restaurant. Impeccable service and excellent food. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
I have been in this lovely restaurant/cocktail bar to celebrate my birthday with my sister. This place is just amazing for food quality, fresh ingredients, home made pasta (you can taste it! :-) On top of that, cocktails are beautiful for presentation and taste, very good choice of spirits. Service was impeccable. I highly recommend this place if you want a real Italian food/drinks experience in London! Will definitely come back.
I am always looking for a culinary gem, and London being London, the search can be as much of a fun as the gem itself. This is why, no matter how good a restaurant is, i generally don't go again in at least six months... I have been to "Il Ritorno" three times in six days. I think that says it all.
The place is very stilish (furniture designed specially for it in Milan), although I have to say, I couldn't care less about that. But if someone is looking for a place for a special ocassion, I suppose this is an important bit of information.
But what makes it stand out is the food. Being married to an Italian and being a foodie, the standards are high on cuisine from that part of the world, so I generally try to avoid it in London. Well, "Il Ritorno" is not place to avoid. By now, we have probably tried two thirds of the menu (excluding the desserts. We were too full to try) and there hasn't been a single dish that is not worth praising. Hence, I'm not going to give details on individual ones, because no matter what the choice is, it will be good.
In addition, the cocktails are excellent, and surprisingly also the price. We never paid more than £40 per person and that included wine.
Give it a try. This one is to "put in the jewellery box".
Great place where to eat real Italian food. The bar is at a very high standard both for quality and skilled personnel. Eccellente!
