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.

All round excellent despite losing our booking. We did get a table pretty quickly so all was good although it’s a busy popular spot so definitely recommend booking ahead. Great evening.

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.

It is in our neighbourhood walking distance ,you believe you can be a regular.I have been there twice.
The service is slow, the seating even booked I guess you need to book a specific table especially if it is for two ,you may end up sitting at the very back .When asked for front tables of two you are told they are reserved.You need to call and tell them whcih table that is what I am told.
The food is moderate not the best Italian , we are fan of Italian food .You ask if they have San Peligrino ,they say yes and bring another brand and pour believing it is the same without informing you etc.
The price vs value is high ,you pay more than you get.

My daughter has lived in this area for over a year and we kept promising ourselves a visit to Vicino as we have visited Italy many times and love the Italian people and their food.
Finally last Sunday we had an opportunity and I took my family, including grandparents. What a disappointment, the staff were surly, the waiter slopped our wines into the glasses, twice missing the glass and pouring wine onto the tablecloth. The food was mediocre at best, the only dish which we could recommend was the carbonara, which at least looked appetising. Everything else was very plain, bordering on a school lunch. Our young waitress was so miserable she could hardly bear to bang our plates down in front of us. The only saving grace was the elderly gentleman who served our 'dolce' who was very charming and actually had a sense of humour.
So please don't come here if you are looking for an authentic Italian experience, this restaurant is much like the plastic flowers hanging from the ceiling a poor imitation of the real thing.

It was a cute and quaint little hidden gem, I am glad I found it and my friends that I took here really loved it too. I definitely recommend it, also I have a hunch it would be very romantic at night.

Waiters were very rude and direct, 3 waiters asked the same questions consecutively, when I asked about a spicy dish that I ordered that wasn’t spicy, they said it was my fault for not asking them to make it spicy !!!

We meet up here twice a year. Nine of us at a large round table which is ideal, as you can talk to anyone. Good food here as always.
Slightly pricey this time I thought. Mind you, we did have several bottles of wine.

Classic Italian, well known and appreciated by Fulham-ites over the decades. Service is efficient but the servers need to smile and react to the clientele. They were pretty grumpy the night we went.
