Food was superb. Service good. I go there often and never disappoints.
Food unimpressive, too expensive for what it is
Favorite, perfect Italian. Never misses.
An absolutely flawless meal, from start to finish.
good as usual.
This restaurant has really gone down hill. So sad. Average food. We both had 3 courses. Only the beef cheeks were good. The rest was bland at best. Service was very amateur with what seemed like new untrained staff. The lady pouring me a glass of water was instructed in detail (in Italian) on how to pour the water. Really?!
As usual, service was excellent and food was amazing. A special thank you to the team at Zafferano for always making us feel welcome and looked after! We look forward to our next visit.
I love this restaurant - I had a business meeting and they were very accommodating giving us a nice quiet table. Service is very friendly and yet professional. Food is great, We had Linguini lobster and Monkfish, both outstanding.
We went to this restaurant for the first time after being recommended by some friends. Everything was perfect, from beginning to end. Service was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious! We’ll be coming back for sure.
The waiter was so rude and unhelpful. I have been to the restaurant for many years. Will never go back. Food has become very average. Unforgivable
Always warm friendly service with excellent food
As ever, superb - from my experience, the finest Italian food and wine in London. Staff maintain the perfect balance between professionalism and insightful attention, gentle wit and good humour and discretion. The interior is smart, comfortable and beautifully set out. The wine list is exceptionally good for Italian wines and the staff are highly knowledgeable. Have been dining here for more than 20 years - and it is consistently excellent.
Exceptional every time, best Italian restuarant in London.
We always make this a regular stop whenever we come to London
Food and service were excellent. Was very empty for lunch- only one other table.
Outstanding. Quite possibly the best steak tartar I've ever eaten. I should have ordered another. A wonderful meal. Sorry it's across the pond.
Always good. Have been twice in last month. Service efficient without being pushy. Food consistently comforting.
Ordered the sea bream for lunch: very nicely cooked but it was a small portion of fish with a few diced potatoes for £28.50. No greens or other veg on the plate. Bread rolls were unimaginative and breadsticks were gummy - no olive oil or butter included. Wait staff do not look like they're having fun. Overly serious and fussy check in process. Nice ambiance, location and complimentary nibbles with expensive cup of coffee - just isn't worth the money for standard fish and pasta dishes.
The food is excellent, the service attentive, but just significantly overpriced. Three for lunch, three starters, one pasta, one fish and one steak (albeit an expensive cut). No wine, no alcohol at all, no desserts, just 3 coffees and a couple of sodas. All in... £219(!). For lunch... no drinks.
Birthday dinner in London and food was very fair. No flavor! Italian girl from Chicago and was really disappointed.
Luxury Italian dining with attentive staff and a lively but relaxed cosmopolitan atmosphere- one of my favourite London restaurants.
The cooking was very good but the pricing of the wines and food seemed to be on the ambitious side even for its location. Also really dislike the inflation of the standard service charge to 15%. We will be heading towards the US standard of 20% if we are not careful.
The waiters were smiling and attentive as always.
The food was delicious with fresh products expertly arranged.
The sommelier provided good guidance across the very large wine selection
Best cappuccino I’ve ever had! Wow!
This place may have been the place to go once upon a time, now its only surviving because of its location where wealthy tourists frequent. It serves very average food at high prices and as for its wine list, its seriously jacked up prices.
A good choice for when you want a leisurely meal, as it felt comfortable to sit at table in conversation with no pressure from the staff. With the exception of one dish, everything was prepared well. Solid cooking, especially of the classics. However, the pasta (papardelle con funghi) was oversalted, though the flavours were delicious, which was a bit shocking given the reputation of and the pricing at this restaurant. Even though we enjoyed the experience, I am not sure that we would go back. For the money paid, we would likely try another high end Italian place instead.
When we stay in London we’re going every time at Zafferano and as usual since ten years nothing change it’s still one a most delicate italien restaurant in London
A haven of calm a few minutes from Knightsbridge. Pleasing ambience -white table linen, polished glasses, beautiful flowers...Large dining room but divided so not noisy. Chose the lunch menu with delicious braised octopus. Portions very small so expensive. Service impeccable. Coffee arrived with petits fours.
Yet another lovely dinner at Zafferano - my favorite Italian restaurant in London!
A good all round Italian restaurant. It has been on the same spot for a decade and always delivers good service and tasty good. Wonderful for any occasion.
As always outstanding service and absolutely delicious food! Love this restaurant
Defendant I will visit Zafferano again!!! The food was very delicious and the wine list was full of excellent wines!!!
