A contemporary Sicilian-inspired restaurant with Moorish influences by the team behind The Stafford London hotel.
Norma is innovative and contemporary, whilst embodying warm and welcoming Italian hospitality and characteristic charm.
Housed in a converted characterful townhouse on Charlotte Street, Norma is split across three floors containing spacious dining areas, a cocktail bar and a private dining room. A crudo bar takes centre stage of the ground floor, showcasing an array of seasonal raw seafood.
The main menu focuses on modern Sicilian-inspired dishes, ranging from anti-pasti and pastas, to larger plates of grilled fish and meat. Norma champions seasonal Italian produce, currently offering homemade pastas such as Mafalde with slow-cooked pork and wild fennel ragu, and Bucatini with Cornish crab, chilli butter and lemon. Larger plates include the signature Norma aubergine parmigiana and the likes of grilled lamb, peas, grezzina courgettes, fresh mint, cumin and garlic.
To accompany Ben’s Sicilian-inspired menu, there is a comprehensive drinks list including a selection of Marsala wines and homemade Limoncello.
