Americans might see the name and think of Wolfgang Puck's famous eateries across the world, but don't expect any smoked salmon pizzas here. This local joint looks like a hole in the wall, but is extremely popular with South Kensington residents - the high Italian contingent also testifies to the quality of the simple trattoria food. Everything is good, homemade and, best of all, dirt cheap. Have one of the pizzas or pastas of the day, and although some of the pastas are so homemade that they look a bit messy, they are delicious. The inconsistencies and nonchalant service seem perfectly charming in the context of a local Italian - so sit back and enjoy.
No comparison to the old Spago, this new management has improved 500%. Now is called Da Spago and I will recommend to anyone. The pizza is delicious togheter with the dessert.... fantastic tiramisu. Julie
I revisited Spago recently and am deligted to see that it remains a cosy, welcoming restaurant with what can only be described as some of the best Italian food in London.
Great value for the quality and to top it off was the vibrant live music. It's always great fun to eat here and is highly recommended to anyone with good taste.
My little italy in London.
I suppose you go to a restaurant to eat, but it's always nice when the staff are cheery and look pleased to see you. Not so here. Not a 'good evening', 'how is your food', 'would you like...' to be heard, or a smile to be seen. Service with a sour face here. And given the restaurant's location you might think they'd cater for people you want less than a four course banquet - but no cards are accepted for less than �20. �20!!! When, after 15 minutes, I did pay (having told them I wouldn't pay any other way) I was only too glad to leave. Shame, because the food wasn't bad.
We were there in 2002. First visit to London. Walking distance from our hotel on Queen's Gate/Knightsbridge. Loved the casual atmosphere. The tiramisu was brilliant! Loved the pizza. Expensive? What isn't expensive in London. Would go again and would recommend it to anyone.
So good to see Spago is still tucked away on this little side street in London for it was 15 years ago when we were in England for the renown Knebworth concert that we first had the good fortune to stumble across Spago. The kind of little hole in the wall you want to find in London or anywhere else in the world. Some kind of almost bohemian charm, superb pasta, pizza to write home about and garlic bread that will leave a delectable indelible impresssion on your mind and cravings. One of our favorite places anywhere!
