Wonderful cozy, romantic atmosphere. Portions are generous. Enormously popular with the local crowd. The best crème brulee. Must reserve. Ask for a table outside in summer.
Caraffini | 61-63 Lower Sloane St SW1 | Tel 020-7259-0235 | www.caraffini.co.uk
Restaurant on Lower Sloane with an enthusiastic following. Extremely good Italian food at moderate prices.
Review below from our very own Ann Christ:
"Just south of Sloane Square toward the river is one of my favorite Italians. The waiters treat everyone as regulars and the food is always delish. If you are a lover of liver(the liver with sage is yum) or skate wing, this is your place. The skate is not always on the menu, but if it is, be sure to order. Perfectly sautéed and the texture and flavor are sublime. They also frequently do a taglierini with fresh lobster that will send you in orbit. From prawns and pasta to wild boar and partridge, the dishes are always tantalizing and imaginative."

Review below from client Chuck de Cuir:
At the suggestion of a London based cousin of our travel and business companion, we first arrived at Alvaro Maccioni's La Famiglia in the early 1990’s. We also arrived straight off the plane. So, we were looking to sooth our jet lag with a bottle of wine, some nice Italian fare and a stroll up Kings Road. I remember distinctly that it was a very pleasant spring Sunday, as such a table for four in the Garden soaking up the Sole Belli and soaking in the Vino was in order.
It all becomes a bit timeless then. The jet lag has its own way of altering time and space, but then add Carciofini Fritti, Capelli d’angelo all’olio tartufata or perhaps Nodino di vitello ai porcini with a nice cool Pinot Grigio and quite simply the earth stops revolving. Pure Tuscan suspended animation. This became our London arrival tradition.
That was nearly twenty years ago. We are lucky enough to be in London a few times a year and have always tried to land at “La Famig”, as we call it. “7 Langton Street please.” will never steer you wrong. Oh...and don’t forget the Tiramisu!
