So much more than an Italian restaurant – Chelsea’s Il Trillo is raising the bar for culinary excellence. Being the sister to the family run restaurant in Massa, Tuscany, Il Trillo brings a most sophisticated air of dining to London. With dishes inspired by the Tuscan hills and old and trusted recipes, Il Trillo on Hollywood Rd serves a fine and seasonal selection of authentic Italian cuisine. And do go there for their simply wonderful ‘giardino’, a courtyard in the back of the venue that lets you relax and enjoy the quiet right in the middle of Chelsea.
Chelsea’s Hollywood Rd lately has earned quite a reputation as being a place where small scale,
family run restaurant and wine bars prosper. Not in the least because of Il Trillo, a fantastic host
to fine Italian dining. The Bertulecci family have been making wine and running a restaurant in the
Tuscan Hills for over 30 years now. Two of the brothers run this smart local which showcases the
produce and wine from their region.
A very friendly and helpful staff is gladly advising on the wine and the authentic Tuscan dishes. Try their amazing fillet of beef with foie gras and cognac sauce if the season allows it. And do stay for their wonderful desserts that are carefully and lovingly crafted, finding their way to your table beautifully presented. By the way, most of Il Trillo’s wines come from the family vineyard in Tuscany, so if you’re in for something extra special, don’t miss out on their wonderful tastes.
Our dinner at Il Trillo was absolutely wonderful as always - one of the very best and special restaurants in London with amazing food and atmosphere.
Great food and service. Loved the house white wine from their own vineyards in Tuscany. A bit quiet a 7pm but livened up as the evening wore on.
We enjoyed very good Italian food and wine in a leisurely meal in quiet surroundings, although there were people at the next table and we could see comings and goings at the door. Restaurant new to us, but the home-made pasta had been recommended to us by friends and was excellent. The slow-cooked veal was extremely well-prepared and -presented. On our list for a next visit to London.
