Ok so here goes...
-The guy bringing the bread around didn't know what they were. There was only 3 types!
-They took ages to bring the menus around and when they did they were just plonked on the table rather than handed to us. No care or welcoming nature.
- The guy taking the order was absurd! He tried his hardest to make us buy additional truffle. Then pushed and pushed us for a starter. We said no that many times and they still bought us one! We said we told him no and they continued to try and convince us we had ordered it!
- Items on the bill were charged more than the menu costs.
- The staff were arguing next to our table.
- We literally didn't feel comfortable sat having our meal.
- Some staff were working doubly hard to make up for the incompetence of others.
- They do the biggest Creme Brulee! 👌

We went there for our wedding anniversary, despite the prime location and the fantastic ambience our experience at Frescobaldi hasn’t been memorable as expected.
We felt rushed during all dinner, while we were still eating one of our starter the mains arrived,and the waiter took away my wife’s plate without asking whether she had actually finished.
She asked to have the plate back to finish her starter;to make matter worse they placed our mains on the table while still finishing our starters. Also we felt like there was no one really caring about our table but only many characters acting in a automatic and confusing way.
I could expect this kind of service from a high street chain restaurant but not from such a high end restaurant like Frescobaldi.

True mama Italia in the center of Mayfair. Very calm place, at the same time wide open and maintaining imperial-must style so eligible for Mayfair. Simplicita and fresh food, lovely atmosphere. Personal watching non-stop all guest and what is happening. Good place to visit !

When in Italy, we tried Frescobaldi Prosecco at our favourite restaurant (Pagnanelli in Castel Gandolfo). After discovering that Frescobaldi had a restaurant in London, we had to try! We are so glad we did... we had a lovely meal here for my partners Birthday, great service, food and wine was delicious! The mille fouille was incredible :)

Worst customer service in town. And incredibly slow to serve food when there were only two other diners in the restaurant.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. We are very sorry that you felt the service wasn't to standard, we praise ourselves for good service and unfortunately, it looks like we haven't achieved that on your visit, we do apologies on behalf of the team. As for the slow service, we have investigated and noticed that it took 11 minutes to produce your main course that included a risotto (18 mns cooking time), I'm not sure how we could have done quicker. Once again, accept our apologies.

The food quality is very overpriced. I ordered breaded veal and the meat wasn’t fresh. My desert was tiramisu which should be star of the show in an expensive Italian restaurant however, it was very average tiramisu that you can find in an ordinary non Italian restaurant too!

The menu was a reasonably large selection of Tuscan dishes including lots of fresh pastas and meat dishes. We had ravioli and pappardelle and they were both great, but the outstanding dish was the octopus starter.

We really liked the food but found the service a little odd (e.g. we were seated with drinks menus but had to ask for the food ones) and the drinks over-priced.

Both my girlfriend and I had a lovely evening at Ristorante Frescobaldi. All the team were so friendly and really sweet. Food was beautiful and the atmosphere was amazing. We will certainly be returning once more. Point for improvement, It was our anniversary and this was mentioned during the booking with Open Table. The restaurant did not mention anything which was not an issue but it would have made my girlfriend feel a bit special.

A nice restaurant, with good food, but whilst chatting with a colleague, without warning the lunch time menu was swiped away at 3pm on the dot. Only to be told that we now had to order off the A la carte menu, a bit harsh when we had been there ½ hour – be warned.

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!
