The Grissini Monster

Along a quiet residential street in Chelsea, emerged a grissini monster from under the white table cloths at Ziani Restaurant!!!

Ahem, yes, that’s me!

When we were at Summer Lodge in Dorset over New Year’s we had met a couple of people there who told us about Ziani – another Italian Restaurant in Chelsea that is dog-friendly.  We were told it’s a small restaurant and very crowds and best to go at lunch time during the week.

Ziani is along the quiet residential street of Radnor Walk – only a short walk from where we live but Mummy was tired from a busy morning, so we waited for the bus on King’s Road.IMG_2457And got off at Markham Square.  We wandered down Radnor Walk and couldn’t miss this signage if we tried!IMG_2474We wandered in, thinking lunch time would be quiet, but not in the least. It was very busy but there was still a table for us even though we had not booked as Mummy thought it was Thursday lunch.

As soon s we sat down, they brought us a basket of breads and as one expects in all good Italian restaurants are grissini – which Mummy thinks it’s ok for me to have instead of bread.IMG_2464And so I put my head on her napkin and wait for stick after stick.

And then – no more grissini? Moving onto Cotoletta Milanese with spaghetti aglio olio pepperocino – nope! too spicy for me.IMG_2469 And when Mummy had her machiato, along came some delicious biscotti.IMG_2471 Desperately trying to get to it!IMG_2473But NO was the final answer. 🙁

May’s comment: Neighbourhood Italian restaurant on a quiet street with simple dining room and quite crowded and noisy – even on a week day lunch. It didn’t bother Darcy as she was purely focused on me handing down food. 
 Ziani is at 45 Radnor Walk, London SW3 4BP

    Love that cute button nose and those beautiful brown eyes. Darcy is so darn adorable! I’d have trouble saying no to her. Hope you brought a treat back for Georgie. I’m adding this restaurant to my must eat at list the next time we’re in London.
