looking for reasonably priced Italian (not pizza) or French within walking distance of south Kensington tube. Have already been to La Bouchee.

    try rocca di papa on old brompton road, right opposite la bouchee ... same people as franco manca; the non-pizza items are supposed to be good too. haven't been, but heard good things.

    google them for their menu.

      We had lunch a few days ago at Rocca & can recommend the pizza.

      The Cremerie Creperie is right by the station.

        If you want to branch out to Spanish I went to Capote Y toros Friday night for tapas down Old Brompton Road - would recommend. Excellent food (though not quite up to Barrafina standards admittedly), buzzy atmosphere and a massive selection of sherries if that appeals.

        Racine on Brompton Road gets a lot of good write ups for high end Bistrot food. They source their beef from O'Sheas I believe.
