The Chelsea Cellar hidden beneath Park Walk off the Fulham Road is an altogether welcoming experience. They’re one of the best Italian restaurants in Chelsea, and their chefs – Helio, Cleo and Gilberto – have contributed almost as much to the reputation of Italy in the West End as the likes of Zola, Ancelotti and Conte. Their menu is based on small plates of cicchetti, so you can make yourself a personalised taster menu: try classics like mushroom risotto, arancini and bruschetta, as well as other long-term family-favourites from whole platters of prosciutto, salami and bresaola to gnocchi, ravioli, calamari and even fillet steak. You can reach The Chelsea Cellar easily along the Fulham Road – making them perfect for a post-match after Stamford Bridge – and via Fulham Broadway or South Kensington tube, so book a table and head on over.
Chelsea Cellar has become our favorite restaurant after moving to London. We stumbled on it in the summer and have gone back several times. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff is friendly and provides personal service, and the food is wonderful. I enjoy more hearty dishes with meat and pasta, and my wife is a vegetarian - we can always find plenty to like on the regular and specials menu. We'll keep going back!
Excellent atmosphere, service and food. We were looked after extremely well and will definitely be returning. The wine list is worth perusing and matches the menu well.
Wonderful restaurant, great food and a very food wine list. Love it
