Il Trillo is in my opinion the best Italian restaurant in London in terms of quality of food and Italian food authenticity. It is like eating in a very good Italian restaurant in Italy.

The staff are not the most friendly or smiley - but do their job. The ambience can be a bit quiet - but decor is nice without being exceptional - with a nice indoor terrace with a roof that opens in the summer

Food was really nice. Tables a bit too close together despite restaurant being fairly empty. Therefore not much privacy. Worse part was service. Staff were too attentive. Courses were brought one after the other with no space to digest! Waiting staff gave us dessert/coffee menu and came back to ask for order nearly every minute....despite still drinking our wine. This spoilt the atmosphere, also didn’t help with digestion. It felt like we were constantly rushed. May be some training to the staff is warranted!

Went to Il Trillo on the weekend as have not been for some time. The food as always is always delicious. Sadly, noticed this visit that prices have slightly risen and portions have decreased.. still a lovely spot for a catch up

We arrived early and were quickly seated. Our waitress was very friendly towards us at all time.
We were greeted with our apperitif and an amuse bouche.
Our order was taken promptly and our entrées came out quickly.
The difficulty started about 30 minutes into our service and suddenly there were several other tables also sat.
We waited 35 minutes for our main course. Food was fine, but not amazing to forget the wait.
We were going to
order dessert but then waited anotherr 25 minutes for someone to take our dessert order, so instead we asked for the bill.
It seems the service was as expected since nobody apologised. Other tables were also having to constantly ask the staff to bring them food or the bill.
Based on this experience I would neither reccommend nor go back for a 2nd visit.

It's the second visit within a week. As usual the food was excellent and the wine list outstanding. I really like the idea you can, if you want, drink a glass of fine wine (eg Tignanello) without buying the whole bottle.
