Cafés & Restaurants


Manicomio Restaurant opened its doors in 2003 and since then has been serving some of the most authentic and highly regarded Italian food in London.

Housed in what was formerly the Duke of York Military Asylum (hence the name Manicomio- Italian for Mad House), set off the bustling Kings Road and moments from Sloane Square.

The restaurant seats 50 and offers an elegant and simple Italian menu with emphasis on seasonality.  Manicomio is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner offering both set and a la carte options.

The adjacent bar has space for an additional 30 diners; here you’ll find an impressive wine list and fabulous selection of cocktails both traditional and modern.  The succinct menu changes seasonally covering all angles from negronis to pisco sours. Snacks are available from the Stuzzichini menu or eat at the bar from our a la carte for something more substantial.

The expansive heated terrace is arguably one of the best al fresco dining locations in town and holds a further 70 seats.
