Square Meal Review of Cecconi's ?

It’s typical of Cecconi’s glamorous nonchalance that Hugh Grant can be sitting at the bar and no one gives him a second glance. Like the heartthrob movie star, this venue is slick, sharp-suited – and just a bit cheeky, despite its sombre get-up of green leather chairs and monochrome tiled floors. Breakfast is a Mayfair institution (don’t turn up without a reservation) and from then on it’s a non-stop whirl of air-kissing, bear-hugging – and some very decent eating. Reader recommendations include lobster spaghetti, richly sauced crab ravioli and perfect tiramisu; our own favourites include calamari with punchy alioli, juicy veal milanese and crunchy side orders of zucchini fritti – though we’re also suckers for a stool at the bar, Prosecco on tap and some anchovies, cured meats and crostini to graze on. It’s hardly cutting-edge stuff, but the food’s “perfectly reliable” – served by “friendly and attentive” staff full of character – and the good-humoured ambience a failsafe bet for when you want to have a good time.

It rang and he picked it up. I want it done, he said.
    Every time I have tried to book, I have been offered the not-real-life-friendly times of 5:30 or 10.15. A table at what would be a normal dinner time for a normal person (not that I necessarily place myself in that category) seemed to elude me. But we are...
