We are very sorry. Perhaps the organic Baby Chicken was smaller than usual. Please be our guest with fully discounted food bill!

Beautiful Italian cooking in a great, simple but elegant venue. Service very good. Prices very good, especially considering it's Ken & Cheslea. Would absolutely consider this a destination to visit also. I love the River Cafe but food at Stecca is probably more 'Italian' Italian,...More

We had a lunch for a group of friends at Stecca, the service was excellent and the food was very nice. We didn't feel rushed by the staff, even though we stayed 3.5 hours. I would recommend this restaurant for a nice leisurely lunch. Ambience...More

I was truly surprised how wonderful a dish can be what I've tried several times in my life. A simple bowl of ravioli with black truffle and Parmesan shavings. Great authentic Italian food and warm ambiance.

I found this place an insult to Italian food (I am Italian). The black truffle risotto was the worst risotto I have had in a while, it tasted all but truffle. On top of that, it didn’t have any salt. My friend’s monkfish had no...More

South Kensington
With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque
white washed mansions, and placid garden squares, it's
easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming
