The food was absolutely delicious!!! The service was brilliant, felt very spoiled!! Thank you all for making our anniversary night a proper treat! Will definitely come back soon!!
We were a little disappointed with the meal to be honest - we went for the signature dishes, the lobster linguine and the veal Milanese. The linguine was actually very nice, a sensible portion size for a starter, a lovely bit of heat in the sauce. We were offered and accepted a small break between starter and main course but when the main course came, it looked and tasted like it had been waiting to be delivered to us since we finished our stater. Presentation was very average. Maybe we made the wrong if predictable menu choices but for what is supposedly a top notch restaurant in Knightsbridge, it did not match our local Italian at home and certainly way exceeded it in terms of price. No complaints about the waiting staff though who were charming and attentive.
Excellent food, especially the rib of beef (which was generous for two people) and delicious.
You cannot go wrong with Zafferano!
Excellent restaurant with great food and service. Wine list needs a bit of work on options beyond regular and large bottle - a glass of Gavi for £27 is a bit toppy
I think it is a shame that for such a large outside area, that the restaurant cannot split the outside area into smokers and non smokers. On such a hot evening, we were delighted to receive an outside table until we were surrounded while we were eating by smokers. Shame as every other aspect was excellent.
A lovely, relaxed atmosphere. Tasty beautifully presented, seasonal food.
The best Italian restaurant in May fair.
food and service excellent
Excellent food and wine selection.
Very elegant location
Ideal for family
Business meeting or date
Lovely food and service. Wine list very expensive!
Lovely food and service
Great food and great service
We had a delicious dinner at Zafferano. We loved the authenticity of the atmosphere and of the menu - it felt like we were briefly transported to Italy for a delicious evening. The service was excellent and professional, with care and attention to detail. We will certainly return!
Great Italian fare
This is Italian dinning at its best and some quality wine to match an excellent meal !
Not a good idea to allow smoking on the rather enclosed terrace .
Food great, ambiance good although when sitting outside nearby table smoking which was not good, waiters lovely but service was so very slow- we didn’t get a menu nor orders taken unless we chased. Normally excellent service so I assume stretched. It would have been good for someone to say that.
Great food and service and they have done very well with the outdoor terrace- Fully covered with heaters!
Excellent food with top quality service ( apart from forgetting to bring my husband’s dessert wine - hence 4 and not 5 stars for service ) .!The squid was beautifully tender and the sea bass was delicious . The Sardinian wines were all excellent . This is a wonderful Italian restaurant and shouldn’t be missed .
Good service, nice food but not the standard I would expect for the cost.
You can bever go wrong eating here. Good wine list too.
Love it a classic excellent venue !
Excellent food, truffle season and the as ever the menu and wine list were amazing
Lovely service, great food - fantastic to be back at Zafferano in a post COVID world!
Excellent food and ambience. Definitely recommend to anyone who is interested / curious
Outdoor dinning area is fantastic with ambiance and great heaters. Staff first class. Food great too. My favourite place even with outside dinning restrictions
Lovely food .. and excellent customer service!
I normally love this restaurant however the transition to outdoor dining because of Covid did impact the experience. First of all there was a smoker on the table next to us and we were down wind of it which was absolutely awful! Second of all it was very very busy and the tables are very close together with the waiters having to shout to each other in order to be heard. Given that it is post-lockdown one mustn’t be too demanding however I do feel like it impacted the food. It was not particularly tasty and none of us were excited by the food. The bill was also huge at over £400 for 4 people!!
Great restaurant and was very warm on the terrace thanks to the heaters.
Pricey but classy. Wine list is over the top.
Everything is perfect just unfortunately currently there are road works happening so its a bit loud..
Very nice, genuine Italian atmosphere and food
It is always a pleasure to got to his restaurant.
Great food as always! Everything was outstanding. We have been going to this restaurant for 5 years and we have never been disappointed.
We had a very enjoyable evening, good atmosphere, excellent servicde and most importantly delicious food. We will definitely come back.
recommendation on the wine was top notch
Starter salad very small and expensive
The price for value was not good.
Lovely dinner good service and remarkable menu choices including wine list
