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.

Lovely food, gorgeous setting. Only downside was one of the waiters was a little pushy with upselling. Really enjoyed our meal here and would recommend.

Vicino is always reliable and friendly. They have implemented all that is necessary to keep us safe in these difficult times. However, unfortunately some of the other guests don’t seem to understand about mask wearing and distancing. The problems largely came about regarding going out to smoke. It’s a shame, we had a lovely evening but probably won’t return for a while.

Quite a noisy restaurant when we visited. Very nice inside. Food was ok but not exceptional and was quite expensive. Unfortunately at least one member of our party (6 people) had to wait for their dish with every course. This was slightly irritating. The staff seemed quite stressed. We have been trying restaurants in the area and I don’t think we would go back.

The truffle cheese pasta was amazing value for money and the lasagne was tasty.
Quite possibly the freshest calamari I've ever had.
The service was impeccable and despite a misunderstanding from our side on a mushroom fibre. The restaurant insisted on easing us with a complementary dessert.
Was just a brilliant evening.

Food always good but this is the first time that service was poor.
One young waiter just did not have a clue - we were offered the wrong meal THREE times and ignored far too often.
The good news was that they were incredibly busy - long may that continue but PLEASE get some more staff that understand the needs of their customers.

My partner and I dined here for date night and it was beautiful.
The atmosphere was lovely with the perfect decor and amazing staff.
Notably for us, my partner asked if a dish could be modified and the staff were more than happy to make the dish to his taste. The waiter’s response was “anything is possible” which was such a lovely attitude to have and made us feel really welcome as they were so accommodating.
Each course was delicious, I didn’t want it to end!
We can’t wait to dine here again and bring along friends and family.
