Italian
There aren't many restaurateurs who would hand over the choice of their restaurants name to patrons, no matter how faithful. But the diners of Vicino, previously De Cecco, knew what they were talking about. For a restaurant which has long been a local favourite with faithful visitors returning again and again there really couldn't be a better choice. With its laid back, charming atmosphere and friendly service, Vicino is one of the most welcoming restaurants in South West London. The informal surroundings suit the chilled out vibe and, of course, the home style Italian cookery which is the kitchens speciality. Old favourites and tempting dishes make Vicino's menu as special as its Kings Road location.

This was the first time that I had eaten at this restuarant. I felt that the food compared to other Italian restaurants was very poor. The staff was lovely, they did try to upsell on the main meal. Both my, and my partners meal were very unimpressive. I didn't feel like I was in a restaurant with the quality of the food. Sadly I dont' think I'll be going back.

This was fantastic! I can't wait to come back! There was a big group of us and the service was incredible, food was fast, wine glasses were always kept topped up even though the restaurant was really full! How can I forget the food... It was some of the best Italian food I've ever had, so fresh!

Everyone was friendly.. But the more we asked for things you could see they was getting a bit irate.. Once we had finished ordering.. They lacked after sales skills.. We got no farewell and it was my mums 72nd birthday.. I requested a little candle on a cake if they wasn't busy.. It was empty.. They did no oblige.. I spend 200...but will not go back.. Due to non polite behavior from all of them after we had finished.. And during.. The manager was out he was polite but then we received no goodbye.. Terrible.. And we just got back from Italy..

My wife and I had dinner there on 29th May. Very good food, service (even though they were short staffed) and good value for money. I recommend the Sea Bass and Tagliolini Speck. Will return when we're next in London.

Best regards,

It was our first time in this Italian restaurant in Fulham.

Certainly, food is quite good with good quality ingredients but overall I missed “the magic” of an Italian restaurant i.e. the more romantic environment, probably achievable with lower lights and some candles... price is fair and service correct despite we wait more than normal for main courses.

An exceptional 'local' dining experience. Friendly, efficient and attentive staff working within a relaxed and pleasant environment. An extensive menu yielding a variety of delicious dishes - and excellent value (aperitif, three courses, extras and a bottle of wine coming in at just £50 a head). Highly recommended.

Reservation wasn’t there despite booking but they fitted us in. Bright lights, laminated menu, inattentive service and passable food.

Go to Frantoio up kings road instead

Hi,

Yes I would definitely recommend this to a friend. We branched out on a pretty expensive wine (our choice) but they have a wonderful choice and price range to suit everybody. The bespoked a dish for me that was on the menu (which they didn't need to) and were really attentive and friendly.

You won't be disappointed, I know I will go back and looking forward to it!

I live in the area and have eaten here a lot of the years. The food has always been great. This time was disappointing. My asparagus was hard and woody, the rest of my meal was fine not not as good as normal. I may be wrong but it looks like they have changed the menu, I far preferred the old menu.
