Zafferano Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Without doubt - and after twenty years of dining and returning to Zafferano's - I must tell the world - it is one - if not The Best - restaurant in London. Always hits the mark of Perfection... and if you find the 'thing' that you must have again and again and again, like the Lobster pasta that I adore and more, it will always hit the high mark.. never change, and after twenty years. So the chef knows...and is committed to the original recipe that delivers the delicate flavor down to the very last bite. O did I mention the Team. The Staff. The glorious and generous men and women who give their all. And my guests who have joined me over the years... say, ah, Zafferano's. Magnificent. I rarely endorse, but it is time to applaud the genius of the Fantastic Zafferano's. Yum. Yum
The best restaurant in London! Super!
I have been in this restaurant on the Halloween night with my fiance and I can guarantee that it is still the best restaurant in London. We had Vitello Tonnato and Burrata as starters and Linguine with Lobsters and Brasato. The food was amazing, the service was great and we had an amazing night. They also prepared a surprise for our anniversary. Zafferano is an amazing experience. Best restaurant in town.
Zafferano is my favourite Italian restaurant in London. The service is impeccable, I really appreciate the menu suggestions given. The environment is perfect (I love those big flowers decorating the place). I like to start the dinner having a glass of champagne and that delicious aperitivo at the bar with a genuine taste of Italy. Last time we had Linguine all’astice con peperoncino, impeccably spicy, and Spaghetti al nero con gamberi, with a superb glass of Brunello. I highly recommend those delightful petty sweets for dessert... Love it!
The appetizers and main courses were superb. Broccoli soup, grilled octopus, and halibut were truly memorable. The sommelier delivered beautifully. Our waiter was new and struggled, but he will learn. Most desserts were good, but we don't recommend the pannacotta.
A Very Pleasant Surprise!
Recommended by a friend of mine, it exceeded my expectations. As you soon as you enter the restaurant, they make you feel at home. All staff are very friendly and yet professional. The black ink spaghetti with prawns was delicious and as a dessert, we tried the zabaglione ice-cream affogato and their tiramisu’, both were outstanding. Highly recommended.
Great food and service. We really enjoyed it. We had sea food pasta and a few appetisers. They were all very tasty. Only area for improvement is that pasta portions were relatively small so don't be afraid to order more appetisers and sides as the portion won't be filling.
Truly fantastic. I am a regular and over the years the quality and service haven't changed. The best Italian in London in my opinion. I generally try a different dish because I trust it will be always good. This time it was the Ravioli di Patate, and I wasn't disappointed!
A friend had recommended and we called pre the Proms. From the moment we stepped on the premises everything just was so smooth, effortless and enjoyable. The food was excellent - not a thing would we change and the wine from Puglia was beautiful. Will remember this for some time and if in London again will go without hesitation.
Perfect! The food was amazing! Octopus with potato veloute was outstanding as well as the scrambled eggs with black truffles, also I have to mention that the pluma iberica was delicious and my partner had Linguini lobster which was extremely goo, to finish we had a selection of desserts recommended by the waitress who was very friendly and yet professional. We will be back soon!
The food was absolutely delicious and we were in no hurry so we enjoyed a very leisurely and relaxed lunch. We were perhaps a little too close to a neighbouring table and were not in the least interested in their banal conversation. Still wonderful food and service.
We had pasta fuelled lunch on Saturday before running the London Marathon on Sunday so perfect choice of food. Some of the menu choices were a tad pricy but very good so no complaint there. Overall a really good venue with a classic vibe - if anything the service was a little relaxed and bordering on slow but we were not in any rush and so not an issue for us this time.
