Restaurant description

Inside a classically elegant Kensington townhouse, La Trattoria by Alfredo Russo presents inventive Italian recipes with thoughtful tweaks by this celebrated Michelin-starred chef. As well as wholesome tastes of the Mediterranean, there are also classic afternoon teas served in The Library.

The La Trattoria menu spans the entire day, kicking off with versatile breakfast options ranging from the classic full English with wild boar and apple sausages, through to Canadian pancakes. Later in the day, the a la carte menu is designed to be shared, with flavourful delicacies like sliced veal in tuna sauce, and pasta and Tuscan bean stew. Generous mains include favourites such as braised beef in red wine, seafood soup with garlic bread crouton, and sides of roasted polenta.

Indulge in traditional afternoon tea at La Trattoria in South Kensington, with finger sandwiches, warm scones and soft macarons served alongside a superb selection of exotic loose leaf teas, as well as a comprehensive wine list.

An elegant setting to enjoy passionately prepared Italian recipes, La Trattoria by Alfredo Russo is just a minute's walk from South Kensington Tube Station, and a stone's throw from the numerous museums and galleries of the local area.

    The deal was great value. The meal was okay. My friend and I both thought the ragu was a bit bland. Friendly but slow service.

    Lovely quirky restaurant with interesting art. Obviously a limited choice from the set menu but this did not bother us. Service was good and friendly dishes were cooked to order. Nice experience which we shall undoubtedly repeat.

    Beautiful location, just five minutes from Hyde Park and opposite South Kensington station. Fantastic pasta served in a very original way. Braised really good. Waiters friendly and helpful. A really nice place to eat.

    La Trattoria is a little gem of a restaurant for those who like good Italian food. The menu has appealing dishes, most of which are of a kind not generally seen on 'traditional' Italian restaurant offerings, & the food itself is wonderful - fine ingredients, cooked to perfection & beautifully presented. The restaurant is tucked away in the basement of the Pelham Hotel (directly opposite South Kensington tube), but it is worth making the effort to get there & you won't regret choosing this place. This was my second visit to La Trattoria, & the overall experience has been consistently good.

    We went here on a quiet Tuesday evening for a family birthday, the waiters were charming and helpful and the food was well cooked and tasty. The wine was very good.

    This was a lovely place to eat in all respects.

    The food was very good, fresh, lightly cooked and delicately flavoured, but with depth of flavour. I loved the food. The service was appalling, at best amateur and worst, incompetent.

    The waiter was very friendly and attentive but was happy to leave my friend and I to have our lunch and chat for over 2 hours. The atmosphere is welcome and very relaxing.
