Zafferano first opened in the heart of London’s exclusive Belgravia area in 1995.

Since then, the awards and accolades have continued to pour in each year and the restaurant has achieved some of the best restaurant reviews written.

Zafferano has been acclaimed time and again for its honest wholesome take on Italian cuisine, with dishes like ‘Malfatti’ Pasta Parcels with potato and morel mushroom, Lobster and langoustine sautéed with ‘samphire’ and also Roast ‘Fiorentina’ T-bone Steak with herb salad.
There is also an elegant bar offering a selection of cocktail, aperitifs and digestive as well as a bar menu with a mouth watering choice of regional Italian favourites.

    We returned after a quite long absence to Zafferano, one of our favourite London restaurants. It still is a good place: very good food and service and a calm and quiet ambience. It is pricey but it is in Belgravia, so what do you expect. We shall hopefully return soon.

    I think Zafferano has just lost its way. Used to be a busy, lively, pure Italian restaurant with a great buzz. Now it’s just a danse old white table clothed average and plain European food. Sorry, but won’t visit again until you get back to your roots!!!

    Reserved a table, came and sat down at the right time without any problems, the staff are wonderful, sociable and cheerful. The food came quite quickly and was very tasty and filling. The drinks were also very good. The prices are quite normal for such a restaurant and they suited us. I advise this restaurant, we liked it :)

    Amazing restaurant at great location. We were sitting outside on beautiful terrace. We ordered prawn carpaccio and vitello tonnato for starters. It was fresh and delicious. For mains linguine lobster. Probably the best I ever had! And finally tiramisu for dessert. It was rich and creamy! For a drink I really recommend to go for a lemon sgroppino! It’s refreshing and really tasty!

    Very disappointing. We had booked a table at 14.30 however with the train strike and tube delays were were 15 minutes late . I emailed the restaurant to notify them of this . When we arrived at 14.45 we were told that we needed to order immediately as the kitchen sit at 14.45 . Instead of a relaxing family afternoon it was very stressful. The starter was brought before the wine and the food was expensive and very disappointing. My 18 and 19 year told children wanted spaghetti bolognaise or something similar. This was not available so I suggested the lobster linguine. One like it the other did not . I can definitely say that Signor Sassi is way better and open all day . This is where we normally go but had wanted to sit outside. My veal Milanese was not freshly made and there were bits of gristle so my daughter did not even want to try it. My husband had the ravioli. There were 5 pieces. He left the restaurant hungry and we actually went to Harvey Nichols where he had a club sandwich. The tiramisu was excellent .

    A favorite over the past many decades let down by the kitchen. Hoping it was a one day abberation. The front of house staff put on a brave face, but there was no hiding their own displeasure

    Visited Sunday 15.5.22 very nice welcome and seated quickly easy to find and very large only thing we would comment on is the menu is very very limited if your a vegetarian as they had less than 3 options for vegetarians which in 2022 and in London is pretty poor however for non veg the choices were excellent and plentiful.
