A buzzy bite of La Dolce Vita in the heart of Mayfair. With an interior décor that manages to use kitschy Monsieur Poiro-esque features superbly well. Art nouveux maritime themes married with Murano glass and fake portholes conjures up a splendid feel of Venetian 1950's glamour. The menu is faithful to the favourites of the Laguna , and cuttlefish with polenta makes a hearty main course, followed by a towering cloud of meringue vanilla cake which was a confection fit for the Gods ! The starched white coated staff could have all just stepped off the Orient Express, and are as efficient, helpful and plentiful as even the most discerning diners could wish for.
A splendid taste of Italy, and just a short hop from Bond Street's tube !
