About il trillo London
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.
I love this restaurant - when I want great Italian food this is where I always go. Fantastic food and wine and great friendly service.
This is the second time I have been to this restaurant and it was just as good as the first time. It was a special occasion and the staff made sure we had a fantastic evening
This is the best Italian restaurant I have been to outside Italy - amazing food and wine. Brilliant atmosphere and service. Will definitely go again
Great place with amazing food. Definitely one of my favourite spots! The pasta is extraordinary and the chef cares about the little details and the vision. Just top class
Everything was extremely good. The food was very tasty, well presented, full of flavour and very light. The service was good, the waiters were very nice and kind. We did not wait long time to order and between a course and the next. The atmosphere was very soft, perfect for couples or families; the Garden side is a must. Furthermore, we have been spoilt with some small appetizers and desserts offered by the house. What can I say, PERFECT!
I recently had dinner in the restaurant "Il Trillo", where I had the chance to eat some very good italian food (I am italian, so I definitely can state it was really good). The stay was pleasant also because of the very cozy atmosphere: inside the restaurant there is a sort of "winter garden" with some lemon plants and everything results so comfortable and familiar. The wine list is also amazing, provided with a wide variety of excellent brands.
Great restaurant with a nice interior and friendly staff. Not the typical stuck up posh place but rather nice friendly and family atmosphere. Really good italian food with home made pasta and nice little appetizers and a good starter menu. Desserts are also really really good. Huge range of vines. They also have a specials menu which, having been a couple of times within the last couple of months, hasn't changed. That's why it only gets 5/6.
I was back at Il Trillo last night, and we again greatly enjoyed the food & ambience and the warmth of Roberto's welcome. This time it was to demonstrate to a sceptical friend that Il Trillo really does have the best dark chocolate gelato in London - she conceded it's as good if not better than Annabels and 5 Hertford St !
Very tasty food, well presented and a lovely atmosphere. Restaurant was busy not full on a sunny Sunday lunchtime. We arrived before our booked time which did not cause any issues and we were not rushed at all. Service was attentive but not overbearing. We had some mixed starters on the table, 1 main course each and a very delicious bottle of rose. Will definitely visit again.
Great food, paccheri was amazing and quality very high. They gave us wonderful starters. The wine list is huge and very high quality. I had a 5 terre stunning. Moreover the service is very efficient, quick and polite. The ambient is cosy, fresh, comfortable. Reasonable price considered how good it is. Absolutely a must try.
Love this restaurant. Short menu, all great stuff, lovely wine list and people who really know what they're doing. Recommend the Mortadella with truffles or the the burrata to start with, then literally any pasta choice is fabulous (maltagliata is my personal favourite). And try their amazing limoncello afterwards - it's the best!
First time visiting this restaurant. We took my parents who absolutely loved it. Really lovely place to go either as a couple, with a group of friends or with family. The food was excellent and the staff were great fun, very welcoming and really helpful. Overall experience was fabulous. Will definitely be returning.
It's my second meal there and I will definitely be a loyal customer. Nice relaxing atmosphere, excellent food (one of the best restaurants in London, and I have tried quite a few!) and excellent service - they gave me the best table by the window even if I was alone.
My third visit, I'm a regular customer now - Lovely cosy atmosphere, excellent service, and amazing homemade Italian food and wine. They gave me their best table as soon as it was available, a lovely place to eat and relax with company or alone after a stressful week.
The food, service and staff .l were all great. Will definitely list it as one of my favourite restaurants Parking difficult but worth spending on taxi. Unfortunately two large parties were going on in the back room where we were placed and this made it very noisy.
great place - never disappointed. the menu changed a bit which is good, I'll be happy to try new options next time. Had a great glass of wine, happy that there was a 125ml option. The restaurant owner and the staff are always very nice and attentive
Lovely atmosphere, correct portion sizes (not too big or small), and excellently prepared food. Only downside is that wine was quite expensive by the bottle, so I advise having a drink beforehand at home and ordering a glass. The all-Italian staff makes for a very authentic experience.
Authentic Tuscan well executed with attentive service. Wine list is so life but not overwhelming. Prosciutto and melon was superb and papardelle was perfectly cooked. The pigeon risotto was unique and decadent but well proportioned. An oasis in a busy city.
Cosy, almost family-like Italian/Tuscan place in Chelsea. Menu is not huge, but every dish is a feast. Very impressive wine list. Great dessert. And they send you off with a limoncello or grappa! Will return again and again and again and...
Great food and staff. Wine was wonderful. We did not the have a good table, felt the staff rush past me each time they passed and then the yelling to the downstairs kitchen was more than audible. Felt we were being pushed through for next sitting. In saying that I could not fault the food or service. We will be back.
