Came here in the search of tea and cake on a Sunday afternoon, and the selection looked better than other places around South Kensington station. The place was heaving but they managed to find us a table immediately. Seating was a bit cramped and the...More

I went with my god-daughter who has a baby. This branch had good baby changing facilities. We had eggs which were good and the service was great.

Went for the lunch set menu. Plenty of choice for most tastes and at almost £13 for two courses, very reasonable. Food tasted great, staff friendly and attentive.

So London is full of go-to places, especially for locals. Sure its a chain. But this is one of them which stands out now as more than worthy of a visit. The great location sets it apart. Rewind a year though and this was not...More

My wife and I ate at Carluccio's for both lunch and dinner and both meals were very good. It has the feel of a neighborhood restaurant not that of a chain. The food is very good, reasonably priced, a good wine selection also reasonably priced,...More

This place was highly recommended by a friend, and it certainly seems very popular; however we were all disappointed in our meals, except for the desserts, which were pleasant. My spaghetti vongole, though reasonably tasty, contained nearly as many empty shells as it did clams,...More

child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
