Our first time here and it certainly won’t be our last. The food was incredible and the service really friendly and fab. The only slightly annoying thing was that they didn’t decant the wine we were drinking which was quite special and expensive and had a lot of sediment. Add a decanter into the mix and you have 10/10!

First time here and it won’t be the last! We were in at 6pm and got the 20% discount on food which was automatically deducted. The room filled up later but tables are nicely spaced and it was never noisy. The food was Mediterranean in style and the hummus as amuse bouche was excellent and served with lovely flat bread. Quail breasts and delicious lamb shanks followed. There is a decent wine list with a good selection by the glass. A very nice restaurant all in all. More

While staying in London on business I seek out 'ethnic' foods over the usual British Pub offerings. I found Cacciari's via Google search for Italian restaurants close to Holiday Inn Kensington. The staff friendly, the food very good, after declining a desert because I was so full from the lamb special that I had eaten the owner poured me a shot of limoncello liqueur, very nice of him. I will dine there again if in Kensington. More
