This classy Italian restaurant on Beauchamp Place has been in operation since 1963 – originally with just nine tables, now capable of seating 180. It retains the ability to engender a sense of occasion.
The menu focuses on classic dishes from Tuscany, Piedmont and Rome. That means dishes such as beef carpaccio, calamari fritti, insalata di gamberi and saltimbocca alla Romana. Pasta is a speciality, with plates including homemade pappardelle al pesto and penne alla grazia.
The Sunday roast, served from a trolley, is a popular option.
