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.
An excellent corner for italian (mainly tuscan) food, with a superlative wine cellar. Familiar location, good and fast service, appetizers and treats compliments of the house. I'll certainly be back!
The restaurant was very accommodating to our dietary needs; allowing us to modify, or even create, dishes that met our requirements for a pre-marathon carb load.
A lovely atmosphere in this restaurant and wonderful food and wine. Nothing to fault and such amazing service. Dining here feel like being on holiday and an escape from the busy life!
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!
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
We love ail Trillio. The owner and his staff are so friendly and the food is delicious. There's a lovely, buzzy atmosphere, and our Cocker Spaniel, who is very well behaved, is able to come with us and so that's an added bonus for us and him!
Well cooked and presented food. Extensive wine list with many reasonably priced options (all with detailed descriptions). Small but attractive venue. Friendly but non-intrusive staff. The restaurant was busy on the Saturday evening I attended. Will definitely return.
Nice location. Charming interior. The Italian waiters were very attentive. My starter of poached egg with red cabbage was very unusual but delicious, as was the rest of our meal. We will be back when next in London.
A very nice restaurant. Service was friendly and efficient. I had a question or 2 about the wine and the manager took the time to answer my queries. The food was carefully cooked with a well timed filet of beef the centre of my meal.
Roberto and his team do a great job. what comes out of the kitchen is second to none and the service is friendly. Highly recommended to anyone who appreciates genuine Italian cuisine with a twist!
For various reasons I've eaten at il Trillo four times in seven weeks with friends. Every meal has been great. I love the mortadella and all the pastas are excellent as is the wine list
Food good but service was very slow and it was not until the following day when one of our party re-checked the receipt, that we realised we had been charged for a bottle of wine that they never bought us. Disappointing as we have had good times here in the past.
Fantastic restaurant with excellent food, great service and a local, friendly buzz which makes it a great place to visit. We held an event here and everything was brilliantly handled from start to finish.
A family run Italian restaurant with amazing food, lovely ambience and fantastic service. A true gem that should not be missed, we have had some of our best dining experiences in London here.
Il Trillo is an excellent Italian restaurant. The food is outstanding and the staff are very friendly and helpful. I have been to this restaurant on several occasions and it never disappoints.
Il Trillo is so authentic, beautiful, and delicious. Great atmosphere and the staff were so friendly and helpful too. They made it special. Especially if you sit in the garden area, magical!
Good environment Good food Good pricing Good service I have no idea what else I should write to fill in these 25 words, but I really think it could become my favourite
Squisito! Special gem of gourmet Italiano in the heart of Chelsea. Food is unique with a creative diverse menu of fresh and tasty offerings. The staff is both professional and personable.
Fantastic experience, the second Time that we were there and of course we'll be there for the third one! Amazing, high standard even for an Italian one! Well done guysssssss !!!!
good food. Some options are better than others, but it is always good food and wine selection, good service and relaxing atmosphere. They do chance the menu occasionally which is good
Very nice restaurant. Delicious food and very pleasant atmosphere. My only comment would be to offer a couple more of the less expensive wines by the glass... Wines by the glass were very limited and expensive.
This is a perfect little romantic restaurant in the heart of Chelsea. The food was amazing, staff excellent, polite and helpful. We will definitely be going back again and again.
Excellent food, and very good service, we go several times a year especially with visiting friends. The prices are very attractive for Ken-Chelsea, very good and broad Italian wine list
great wines and food and warm back garden room. Also they make the best creamy limoncello ever. We enjoy drinking wines here as much as buying them and taking them home from their wonderfully curated collection.
We enjoyed the Great Italian food. Wonderful quality and excellent service. The wines were well matched to the menu. There is nothing else to add, simmply one of the best.
The best Italian in Chelsea A gastronomic experience in an enclosed patio in Hollywood Road. You are transported to Italy for an experience of flavours. You will not be disappointed.
It is a fantastic restaurant Edith fantastic food and fantastic staff! Only issue was that it was very cold in the room... I come there every time i visit London
Excellent food, pleasant ambience, friendly staff, service can be a little slow but food is worth waiting for. Starters we feel are a bit expensive. Supported by many Italians which is always a positive endorsement.
Excellent home made food, excellent service. lovely environment, nicely decorated. Great Tuscany cuisine. One of the best restaurants in London. Happy customer, will definitely go again. Great wine selection.
The food was good but the service was not very good. Large pauses between meals and the waitstaff were not very friendly when we asked for more food or wine. I'm surprised as I'd heard great things about il trilo from my sister.
We really enjoy ourselves. The dinner was very nice. Each dish was excellent except for the risotto which in our opinion would need something else. The panacota was excellent paired with a sweet wine.
Best Italian Restaurant in town. Great food and friendly service. Good attention to details. Elegant location. Perfect. High standards even for native Italian standards. ...definitely lovely dining experience!
We had a great time! The place is lovely and the food is fantastic. Cool atmosphere, and the waitresses are very kind and helpful. We’ll go back again!
Very nice little Italian restaurant, with a nice atmosphere. Food is good, but special of the day wasn't. Presentation of food is lovely. Service can be a bit long but our waiter was helpful and full of attention. Will go back!
Il trillo is a terrific restaurant. The atmosphere and Decor are first rate and the food is even better. Would definitely recommend for date night or similar.
Excellent food and service! Very friendly staff and wonderful decor. I would recommended for any occasion, from romantic to fun gatherings with friends. It is a must!
