Squaremeal Review of La Famiglia ?

As a “traditional, family-run Italian”, La Famiglia is a proud little vestige of Old Chelsea – a friendly, locals-orientated spot that has been trundling along for nearly 40 years. Blue-and-white tiled interiors channel the spirit of provincial Italy whatever the weather, while the sun-trap terrace is much sought after come summer. Over the decades, the kitchen has watched the culinary whims of the capital come and go, safely rooted in dishes from late founder Alvaro Maccioni’s beloved Tuscany – all ‘cooked the way mama taught us’. First-rate ingredients and Italian knowhow combine in regional classics such as pappa al pomodoro (bread and tomato soup), chopped chicken livers with capers and garlic on toast, rigatoni with Gorgonzola sauce, or roasted veal with Swiss chard. For dessert, the kitchen’s fresh fruit platter is a stunner, or you could try one of their creamy confections. Service gets strong reviews and the Italian wine list is fun to explore.

La Famiglia has been an institution in Chelsea for longer than I have been alive. I was first introduced to the restaurant fourteen years ago and have made it a regular haunt ever since. The food is unashamedly country, almost peasant, in style and all the better for it. There's none of the glitz and glamour that you get from Locanda Locatelli for instance, but instead you have wholesome hearty food that is consistently good, and occasionally outstanding. In truth it's not the best Italian in London,...

Booked by phone, hostess insisted abou 5 times that I give my surname rather then first name. Only when she saw that I might change my mind and take another restaurant, she accepted the booking. Arrived at 8pm on a Saturday evening. Cute restaurant, nice atmosphere though half empty on a Saturday night in the heart of Chelsea, atmosphere looked promising. Been sat on a nice table, not too close to the neighbour, breadbasked on the table already. Bread dry and not definitely not home made, grissini...

The most awful restaurant I have been to in London in 5 years. Went as a result of what I read, on line with 3 other Italians. Staff arrogant and unhelpful,,,,, good thing no service added , but hey no service from them, so fair enough. Food bland, served very fast on boiling hot plates…do I sniff a microvave? Obviously a second sitting! . Dont go it was horrible, also the puds sit out all night on a trolley…not hygenic… . Such a HUGE let down.
