I took my husband to Ziani's last night for his 30th (and also our first dinner out together since our wedding). I really wish I hadn't bothered as I am still upset by the service and food that we received. Perhaps with hindsight I should have realised from the busy cafe like atmosphere when we arrived (and the fact that I could barely hear what my husband was saying) what we were letting ourselves in for - this was not going to be the romantic evening I was hoping for!

We were sat down and asked immediately what we wanted to drink - without even seeing the drinks menu. We had a variety of different waiters hanging over us hurrying our order along. Our first course was slammed down on the table in front of us 5 minutes after ordering - a speedy service is usually a good thing however our food was whisked away from us with the same amount of haste as soon as it looked like we had finished - with no time to sit and reflect on our starters (which by the way were good). My second course was battered squid rings (my husband had battered courgettes as a side order). The batter was soft and squidgy and was not fresh. I really should have complained but by this stage all that all I wanted to do was finish my dinner and leave. None of the waiters looked after us well - we constantly had a different one demanding someing from us. When we asked for the bill from one waiter running past us and he shouted "ok" without even bothering to look at me. After we had asked for the bill another waiter then came and plonked the dessert menus down in front of us and walked off - totally oblivious to the fact that we were leaving.

On a final note I really do object to being charged 12.5% for service when we didn't really receive any. Service should be at the customers discretion. But then again if it was - they wouldn't receive any. With so many other restaurants to visit in London I am grateful that I will never have to go back to Ziani's.

We (Chelsea residents) ate there last Sunday for lunch and even on the way there in severe traffic which made us in total about 10 minutes late for our 1.30pm table, we were called to ask if we were coming! We assumed that they had people waiting for tables but the restaurant was only half full. I had a very good experience there a while back and was longing to go back but what a disappointment!

As we perused the menu we ordered an aperitif and were constantly asked if we were ready to order and literally the waiter stood over us until we ordered. Once we had made our choices, the courses were served so quickly we barely had a chance to empty our plates before they were whisked away.

Our whole impression was that they, although being courteous, could not wait to get rid of us. We arrived at 13.40pm and I paid the £132 bill (for 2 people which included a glass of prosecco each and a bottle of rose wine that we were hard pressed to finish) at 14.30pm, according to my credit card receipt. Even in these days it is a lot of money to pay for a meal that took a little less than an hour -especially when it was supposed to be a relaxing experience.
