Tentazioni

The decor at Tentazioni is striking, a vivid red that evokes a womb with a view – though the view isn’t why anyone would visit. There’s plenty to recommend, however, about the adventurous range (beetroot gnocchi with gorgonzola and pistachio fondue, anyone?) and attention to detail of the dishes. Mozzarella on white crabmeat with saffron sauce proved more sensational in appearance and texture than in taste, but a classic bruschetta ticked all the right boxes. Roast pork served with dried prunes, wild mushrooms and mustard sauce was moist and flavourful. Yet while roast cod fillets with sautéed spinach were tender and juicy, there was no reference on the lunch menu to the fact that they came with a lobster bisque sauce, a remarkable oversight given what this would mean to those with dietary restrictions. Our meal dragged on a bit and service suffered from a few translation blips but was on the whole charming: a problem with delays in food arriving led to the offer of free wine. Still, Tentazioni feels like a quality experience.

We had dinner at Tentazioni on New Year's Eve 2015 and it was absolutely delicious! We had a fantastic 7-course set menu and every single course was great. Some of the dishes, I wouldn't have chosen, if they hadn't come as part of the set menu, but I absolutely loved all of them.


The combinations of ingredients were bold (veal with apple & cinnamon), but they all worked really well and it certainly wasn't just for the sake of making the dish sound more interesting on the menu!


The service was also really attentive and slick and they made a great wine recommendation!


We paid just under £150 incl. service charge for 2x 7 course set menus, 1x bottle of wine and 2x large bottles of water. Which we though was good value for money given the quality of the food and service.

The service was first class, attentive and friendly. The dining room is a lovely setting for a good meal and most importantly, the food was amazing. The asparagus soup with a poached egg was flavorful and comforting and the beetroot gnocchi was not only beautifully presented but tasty and all the flavors worked together beautifully. I had asked about gluten free options when we arrived and when they realised they had run out of gluten free bread they sent someone out to get it in time for my meal. We used a tastecard but agreed we would definitely go there for a special meal again, it is a real find.

I recently visited Tentazioni having used a Wowcher voucher for the seven course taster menu. I must say that the food was excellent and the service also. Will definitely visit again.

I recently visted Tentazioni with some friends for lunch. I was thoroughly impressed by the attention I received and by the excellent and delicious food that was served. The whole occasion made my trip to London very enjoyable and it was a pleasure eating in a fine dining restaurant, but not paying over inflated prices. This was probably the best lunch that I have ever eaten in London. Thank you
