We brought our children here. We have both been coming since we were teenagers and they loved it as much a we do. Great food, lovely staff, fun atmosphere and the seating was very exciting for them. Totally great evening! Kids said it was the best restaurant they’d ever been to.

The staff were really helpful and accommodating. It was very easy to be able to view the menu online rather than have a paper one - a lot more environmentally friendly too. I'd definitely recommend the Tuscan sausage gnocchi and hope to be returning to try more of the dishes soon.

The staff were amazing and very attentive. I loved the ambience and the layout makes you feel like you are in NYC with the exposed brick and piping. The food is always delicious with a great combination of flavours. Would definitely recommend for a friends catch up or any special occasion. Thank you for such a lovely experience :)

Great experience at The Jam. Food was delicious and service was excellent. we loved the cool seating concept and found it very entertaining. only tiny complaint would be that the restaurant was very hot (even too hot) for the cold winter months but other than that a great place to eat with delicious food.

Family lunch, fun quirky Italian restaurant, pleasant staff but sadly Pizza was off the menu and orders were incorrectly served with items missed. Would return but hopefully for an improved experience. Value just ok for Kings Road, if everything is on the mark.

Great fun place. I have been going to the jam for over 35 years. Fun place, good food, cosy (my kids 11 and 17 years old ) love the atmosphere. Try and get seating on the upper deck.

We passed by and were attracted from the dining tables situated on a wooden double deck so we come back for dinner. Food is Italian, We tried parmigiana, calamari, pappardelle bolognese, chicken and clams. All dishes were very good. We really liked the atmosphere and the food.

Food good but not the best experience. Music too loud. Asked to lower it but didn’t seem to change much. Unique seating arrangement. Service a bit rough. Overall not terrible but probably won’t go back with better options in the area.

Lovely staff, very understanding as my friend had to take a work call outside and we were late taking our table. Enough privacy in the booths to have a great conversation but still soak up the atmosphere. Food was really authentic and delicious. Don't miss the burrata!! Thank you, will be back!

So glad I finally came to Buonasera! Honestly one of my favourite Italian restaurants in Chelsea. The staff are incredibly friendly and will make you feel very welcome. The restaurant itself is super quirky. Having the tables upstairs gives you more privacy and that 'cosy' feel. Loved it. I will definitely be coming back for more pizza and pasta!

The service was so slow- to order food it took forever, to bring the food and to pay it took ages too.
The food was ok but not worth the wait

Get what you pay for, good food, wine and service. Not a huge menu but enough to suit all tastes. There were 5 of us and we had 6 starters, 5 mains, 2 bottles of wine and 2 soft drinks and it was just under £190 which we were all very happy with
