Food and drink
I have many favourites but you can’t go wrong with bottarga, Sardinia’s cured roe of grey mullet: sprinkled over richly creamy burrata cheese and cherry tomatoes, or simply tossed with spaghetti and butter. The chargrill turns out smoky lobsters, prawns, bream and tuna for those craving greater simplicity. Classic Italian puds (tiramisu, pannacotta, semifreddo) dominate the dessert list but why not use the occasion to try Sardinian cheese fritters doused in honey. The all-Italian wine list is mercifully brief – even so it’s best to concentrate on the Sardinian bottles, which include house red and white at £18.80.
Sleekly sophisticated, the cool white décor punctuated with a couple of stunning feature walls and contemporary lighting.
Pretty slick but I’ve been frustrated by long waits for dishes, and had to wave down staff to sort out the bill.
A ten-minute walk from Victoria station but quite removed in spirit.
This is Belgravia, remember, and you can easily spend £120 on a three-course meal for two: to keep costs down, exercise restraint when it comes to side dishes, aperitifs and coffee.
