SquareMeal Review of Ziani



Hidden away on a quiet residential street, this dapper-looking ristorante with its primrose awnings is a godsend for Chelsea locals who can afford its prices. Passers-by might not notice it by day, but you can’t mistake the animated hubbub emanating from its relaxed, monochrome dining room in the evening. Signed photos of celebrity patrons and Italian greats provide a talking point among the neatly laid tables, while the kitchen deals in regional dishes with a Venetian bias – skewered baby cuttlefish and prawns served cold on spinach, wild boar sausages with wild mushrooms and polenta, char-grilled sea bream with mint sauce and trattoria desserts such as pannacotta or zabaglione. There are also some top-flight Italian wines too. Owner Roberto Ziani and his beguiling staff stoke the atmosphere with dolce vita, and the whole experience is “guaranteed to make you happy”.

Came here for a dinner with friends. Service was warm and efficient. Portion sizes were ideal and the food was flavourful. Even when we finished our meal, they were in no rush to have us leave.

I have been coming to this restaurant for over 15 years, although not very regularly, as I do not live in London. However busy this restaurant gets I never get turned away. The staff seem to have been there for years, and I have never experienced bad service, as mentioned in one of the other reviews. The menu rarely changes, although there are daily specials, and I seem to almost always gravitate to the grilled mixed fish and zucchuni. Wine by the glass is very good value also. I do quite often visit Ziani on my own, and I have never felt unwelcome or self conscious. I love it and will continue to be a customer

The food may have been good but we were not permitted to enjoy it as the service was extremely rushed from the moment we sat down. Conversation at the table was constantly interrupted by hovering staff trying to accelerate each course. A most unpleasant dining experience.
