Some specialities on offer include tortellini, piadina romagnola and garganelli which are all handmade fresh on site every day. It really doesn’t get much better than that!

We really can’t emphasise enough just how delicious the authentic Italian food offering at Cacciari's Restaurant South Kensington is. People come from all over London to visit this Old Brompton Road eatery, and it’s no surprise really. Everything is made by hand the traditional way, as it is done in Bologna – and this includes the bread, desserts, pizza, piadina, pasta and more.

No matter what you fancy, you’d best arrive with a huge appetite because you’re going to want to eat everything on the menu at this London hotspot.
Food a bit disappointing - more English than from Bologna. Wine was very underwhelming. Service OK. A bit slow perhaps. A first course of prosciutto was served on a mound of rocket placed on a long thin platter unsuitable for easy eating. We had to ask for a plate, so a bit more thought needs to be given to presentation. However the wild salmon was perfectly cooked, but the beans below it were over cooked
Small lovely place. Wonderful food — very good quality and very reasonable prices. Service was a little slow at the beginning but we were in between servicers an then very attentive Great neighbourhood gem.
