Square Meal Review of Locanda Locatelli ?

There’s no disputing that Giorgio Locatelli is at the top of the tree when it comes to Italian chefs in London, and the re-opening of his restaurant after a devastating gas explosion in 2014 has surely been welcomed with anticipatory rumblings of gourmet and celebrity tummies across the capital. The room, with its butter-soft leather banquettes, deep carpet and hushed calm has been restored to its former glory but the menu has had a bit of a makeover. Giorgio’s style of cooking, using the very best ingredients he can find and letting them speak for themselves, seems deceptively simple – burrata served with blood orange, black olives and fennel is likely to be more than just the sum of its parts; beautiful pastas precede the likes of roast sea bream with bagna cauda or rabbit with parma ham and polenta. The wine list, which includes a huge selection by the glass, lives up to the status of the world-class restaurant that this is.

    Sam Stewart Etc :: Locanda Locatelli London Review

    I have been hearing how good Locanda Locatelli was for a long time but they closed down for a bit last year because of a fire and just recently reopened. My mother-in-law and her boyfriend were visiting from the US and they are quite conservative with food so we decided it was a great spot to take them.

    The décor is plain, nothing very exciting and the restaurant was very busy on a Wednesday night.

    Service could use some improvement. It was good but not great – it took forever to clean our table after we were done eating and sometimes our waiter just behaved strangely – he offered balsamic with our...

Giorgio Locatelli

Giorgio Locatelli was born into a family of cooks in his native Lombardy and was pressed into helping out at his uncle’s Michelin-starred restaurant from the age of five. He left Italy for an apprenticeship under Anton Edelmann at the Savoy, then worked in Paris for three years before becoming head chef at Zafferano in 1995. He opened Locanda Locatelli with wife Plaxy in 2002. His Made in Italy cookbook is a modern classic.
