A ‘Chelsea institution’, La Famiglia has been plying its trade just off the King’s Road for more than 30 years. If the sun is out, take your chances on the first-come, first-served courtyard; otherwise settle down in the pristine, white-tiled dining room. It may not rank in the Italian premier league, but the peasant-style Tuscan food & ‘welcoming, homely atmosphere’ keep people coming back for more. A seasonal menu might offer thinly sliced veal with tuna mayonnaise, perhaps followed by roast wild boar with rosemary & garlic accompanied by a glass of big-hitting Tuscan red. Prices are ‘quite high but worth it’, while homespun desserts are ‘like your mum’s mum would make’. Although long-time chef/patron Alvaro Maccioni works the floor these days, reports of dodgy service persist.
