A superb restaurant classic quality but throughly modern
Food was good but the service could have been better. Had dishes mixed up and they forgot our drinks
Good food and overall experience pleasant but in hardly exceptional and not worth the prices.
I’ve been coming to Zafferano for a few years and the food is always excellent. I particularly love the tuna. I won’t order this fish anywhere else. It’s cooked to perfection. The cheese cake with sour cherry ice cream is to die for. The staff are all so friendly and attentive. Always love eating here, especially as they don’t close between lunch and dinner. That’s a bonus as I like to eat lunch late!
Suitable & comfortable
I haven't been there for a quite long time, but the food and the service still great!!
Nice ambience, food and service both fine but nothing to write home about
I love this restaurant i.e. always great to pop for a lunch, however this past Sunday the service levels weren't up to their normal level. Perhaps it was due to me being on oy own or that it was a Sunday and the time slot of 14h00 resulted in the restaurant focusing on preparing for the dinner session.
After I ordered a bottle of wine and wine, I waited about 25-30 mins with little attention, so I then had to ask the staff to take my order. Post my meal, for approximately 20 mins I kept gesturing for the bill until it was finally presented.
The service level wasn't the normal Zafferano level - hopefully it's a temporary blip.
Terrible steak, and hugely overpriced.
Very very nice to be back at Zafferano. Very friendly and efficient service. Set menu is great value, but sommeliers recommended wines we’re top prices.
Great food and drink, knowledgeable and helpful service team. Wonderful.
Excellent food but lack of attentive staff. Had to ask to order wine, then order food, and even for asking for the bill. Nice atmosphere
Vacation in London
Excellent food and outstanding service
Remarkable food quality. I particularly recommend the Fish soup and the crab and avocado pilaf appetiser. The tomatoes taste refreshing and the fish soup’s got an entire perfectly cooked fish filet and fresh shrimp in fine tasty tomato soup. The restaurant serves impressively tasty food that I would recommend to my other friends.
Other diners smoking outside next to you while you eat
Salads were bland and come with no seasoning, not even olive oil.
Veal Milanese was greasy on one side and dry on the other, unseasoned, very thin and almost all breadcrumb.
food was reasonably good but we did not find the staff welcoming or friendly
The rib of beef for two was spectacular! Perfectly executed.
Food was good but service was very slow. Way too many kids so the noise level was high.
A most saddening disappointment. There isn’t an aspect of the experience that I would not question. Food, service, heh (shrug). Price, high.
Great food, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Expensive but not madly so. Does a great job. (We're not convinced by the fish that comes in a plastic bag though).
We have been visiting Zafferano’s for many years and every time is as good as the last. The food is amazing, wine list impressive and the best thing about this lovely restaurant is the wonderful staff, so charming, friendly and knowledgable.
Meeting someone I see rarely, so important to be easy, relaxed, good food and service, and it was.
Lovely staff, amazing food. great service.
A must if you are traveling to London, or a local. Authentic Italian food and amazing wine list. Service is always memorable.
This Restaurant used to be very good until a year ago, now definitely something has changed, the service is terrible, the quality of the food dropped a lot, it’s har to understand how something was really good and now it’s just ordinary. I definitely do not go back.
Food was superb. Service good. I go there often and never disappoints.
Food unimpressive, too expensive for what it is
Favorite, perfect Italian. Never misses.
An absolutely flawless meal, from start to finish.
good as usual.
This restaurant has really gone down hill. So sad. Average food. We both had 3 courses. Only the beef cheeks were good. The rest was bland at best. Service was very amateur with what seemed like new untrained staff. The lady pouring me a glass of water was instructed in detail (in Italian) on how to pour the water. Really?!
As usual, service was excellent and food was amazing. A special thank you to the team at Zafferano for always making us feel welcome and looked after! We look forward to our next visit.
I love this restaurant - I had a business meeting and they were very accommodating giving us a nice quiet table. Service is very friendly and yet professional. Food is great, We had Linguini lobster and Monkfish, both outstanding.
We went to this restaurant for the first time after being recommended by some friends. Everything was perfect, from beginning to end. Service was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious! We’ll be coming back for sure.
The waiter was so rude and unhelpful. I have been to the restaurant for many years. Will never go back. Food has become very average. Unforgivable
Always warm friendly service with excellent food
As ever, superb - from my experience, the finest Italian food and wine in London. Staff maintain the perfect balance between professionalism and insightful attention, gentle wit and good humour and discretion. The interior is smart, comfortable and beautifully set out. The wine list is exceptionally good for Italian wines and the staff are highly knowledgeable. Have been dining here for more than 20 years - and it is consistently excellent.
