“Great meal---saving grace”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012 via mobile

In the otherwise touristy and overpriced bland food area of Kensington, this was a saving grace. The tripadvisor reviews are spot on. Great food, great area, very reasonable price.

“Excellent Food + Good Service + Charming Atmosphere = Very Happy Customers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012 via mobile

Pierino's quickly became our go-to restaurant during the two weeks we were in London. Each time (OK, it was four times.) we felt warmly welcomed, received friendly, professional service and delicious, well-prepared dishes. We also felt we received excellent value. We tried many other places in South Kensington and Chelsea but none of them rated even one return visit.

“Ordinary”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2012 via mobile

I cannot work out why this restaurant has been so highly rated by many people. The dining area is cramped. We did not feel welcome when we arrived. The service is a bit remote. The food was perfectly fine standard Italian but nothing that deserves 5 stars. However the prices are reasonable for this standard of food.

“excellent pasta/pizza....very efficient service...a little cramped”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

very yummy pizza and garlic pizza bread, very thin and nice toppings, pasta also generous size and flavoursome. Proper Italian restaurant, excellent value (although starters were a tad expensive compared to mains and etc). House wine £14 and quite nice too, worked out £23 a head for dinner including starters between two, coffee and wine and service This is ran by actualy Italians, speaking the language amongst themselves and is clearly very poplular. It is a little cramped though and if sat too close to door, its constant opening could get a bit chilly!! Nice ambiance and good service (perhaps a little too quick!!). The restaurant smelt exactly the same as our favourite Italian restaurant in wapping, so we took this as a sign of proper Italian ingredients!

“Great food with friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2012

Came across this small Italian restaurant on way to museums. What a gem - friendly service and fresh Italian food. Well worth a visit.
