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.
A great Christmas menu with wonderful flavours! A huge wine list and a nice atmosphere altogether! I would definitely recommend it to couples and families.
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
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.
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!
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.
