Went there with my girlfriend for our anniversary dinner. She lived the ambience of the room and the service was impeccable. Everything felt authentic. I absolutely had an amazing evening. It's a bit pricey but it's good value for money.

The exciting interior decorated with extraordinary figures and the names of frescobaldi wines contrasts starkly with the dreary buildings where it is housed. The cooking was sublime, innovative and delicious, service excellent though there were not many customers and the wine list of course extraordinary! The bill was also impressive but the experience justified it.

We enjoyed an early evening meal at this beautiful restaurant tucked away in a side street just off Regent Street. It is perfectly placed for such an occasion with easy access to all public transport routes. The food is some of the best Italian food that I have eaten in London with portions just the right measure to provide fulfillment at each course. My wife had the crunchy sourdough crostini with traditional Tuscan chicken liver patè flavoured with Vinsanto 40 Altari and I chose the crispy courgette flowers filled with Ricotta and fresh herbs and both dishes were beautifully prepared and presented. For main course we both chose fresh pasta dishes, hers being the hand made ravioli filled with Bufala burrata, fresh tomato and basil sauce and mine the truly delicious hand-cut pappardelle with fresh Morel mushrooms and beef cheek sauce. We shared the Pesca al forno which was a cooked peach in suavitatis wine served with amaretti shavings and mascarpone ice cream - truly excellent. The only downside of the evening was that the service was somewhat slow which was disappointing given that for most of the time there was only one other couple and us in the restaurant. However, that will not stop me from going again and recommending the venue with confidence.

Worst restaurant from my Trip to London.
It was a real disaster, espescially the service from the woman with red hair.
she was very disrespectul towards us and other customers.
Also, the food wasn’t that good and the portions were too small.
that’s a shame because the place was nicely decorated.
we absolutely don’t recommend it.

Loved Frescobaldi! Have been to their restaurant in Florence and loved it there too. The outdoor area in the London location was perfect for a hot day in London. And because it’s not on a main road you can easily enjoy an Aperol Spritz without car exhaust fumes! Service was so lovely - wish I remembered our waiters name, but he was brilliant with my two children, who have said it’s their new fave London restaurant. And that was before they were brought the sweet jars!

Service and wine were good, the food only average. Restaurant was busy but not full. Would suggest the draw here is the wine from the family estate. Other better restaurants nearby

At the beginning they kept bugging us with water , 3 member staffs kept approaching so we decided to say yes and go ahead. They didn’t give the menu right when we got our table. They halfed our mains when I didn’t understand what they meant by sharing instead they half our pasta in one plate and the portion was small. seems like they forgot our fish later on while we ask them. The sea bass was dry and over cooked with burnt sides.. came late as well... I think this is a good Italian restaurant but they need to rethink how they treat their customers.. over all at the end the waitress donatella was sweet and apologise to us and resolve the problem. Sweet at the end but they need to think about treating customers right at the beginning with warmth and good service.

Nice ambiance though massive confusion about bringing the appetizers out and they forgot our friends meal so we sat there for 15 minutes waiting whilst our food became cold. Disappointing given the potential of the restaurant- not sure why the ordering was messed up.

I have been several times and I was disappointed in the marked deterioration in quality and presentation of food which had previously been excellent. My appetiser of burrita was awash with soggy tomato and limp lettuce and the main of John Dory tasted ok but nothing special and was presented in a very messy and unappetising paper wrapping. Very disappointing. Wines were perfect and service attentive and good

After just returning from Sardinia and still wanting some good Italian Cuisine we headed to Frescobaldi Restaurant... the truffle pasta was such a huge let down !! the wines were good enough but you will need to sift through the expensive imitations to get that real gem. (i won't quote mine as everyone's taste is so different)

The setting and the food/drink was brilliant at the restaurant however the service was far from what I was expecting at such a high-end restaurant. In such a competitive restaurant area such as Mayfair you would think that they would have the basics down to a tee but there were numerous instances where they lacked the simple things. Little things such as giving us menus straight away, taking our food order before our drinks, starters arriving before our drinks just to name a few. Apart from one waiter (Raz, who started his shift at the end of our meal), all the other staff lacked any sort of personality and didn't seem like they wanted to be there which put a downer on our night. I asked for the bill and it had service charge included so I got them to remove it as they definitely did not deserve it. As I said the food and setting was great but it was such a shame that the staff could not maintain the same levels as other parts of the meal, it definitely left a sour taste in our mouths.

Honestly.. Truly amazing restaurant. There were some reviews that I read which made me have second thoughts but after my visit I must honestly say this is a great restaurant. Very nice and romantic but also can be a nice evening team dinner for work. The food was WOW just WOW. The Wine list is very attractive, and the service was very professional. I would highly recommend and we plan to visit again soon.

This was my third time in this restaurant and I highly recommended it to my boyfriend before taking him. Overall I was really disappointed with the table offered to us even though I booked it in advance. The food was terrible and not worth what I paid. I felt disappointed that it actually did not come anywhere near my recommendation. Probably won’t go again. The wine was the only good thing. Sorry

Rude staff who didn’t ask and cleared plates before we even finished eating. We were seated at 6:30pm and had the table back at 9, waiters seemed in a rush to start clearing everything at 7:25pm. Foodwise, chips were served cold and bland. I’ve had better chips at even McDonalds. They seemed merely a pack of chips from a frozen section in a cheap superstore. Desert was served with a jar of smarties. Not sure what that was...

Overall I think the food was overpriced for what it was. I was fooled by the high ratings here.

Terrible restaurant. Perhaps the worst meal out I have had in London in a decade. Stale bread. Tasteless refrigerator-temperature burrata. Pasta that was over cooked and not fully drained. A mushroom sauce without a single mushroom. Bizzare decor with a fake plastic vine on the ceiling. Avoid at all costs.
