Squaremeal Review of Locanda Locatelli ?

Squaremeal London Hot 100 2016One reader reckons Giorgio Locatelli's flagship is the "best Italian restaurant in London", and few would dispute it as a "refined, elegant and calm" destination noted for its "smooth and impeccably timed service". It's also dead smart, and the refurbishment after a nasty fire in 2014 has resulted in more of the same – a refined space of soothing natural tones and swanky leather banquettes. Meanwhile, the kitchen is serving up food revealing the very essence of Italian cuisine – freshness and simplicity. After spectacular breads come antipasti, such as char-grilled quail and liver crostino dressed with apple and balsamic, while handmade pasta might deliver paccheri with red gurnard, black olives and almonds. Those up for the full four courses could move on to braised neck of lamb with polenta and Chianti sauce before concluding with a tasting of Gobino chocolate. As for the world-class regional Italian wine list, "trust the sommelier". Bellissimo, grandissimo and expensivo.

    Quiet eating :: Quiet Eating: Locanda Locatelli

    Following their renovation after a fire (you should really watch were you drop those cigarette butts) I decided to visit to see if the kitchen was still up to scratch following a necessary hasty departure from the premises by the cooks. The new menu unfortunately was missing some of the favourites I had enjoyed on my last visit which were dishes that I had not seen elsewhere (and haven’t since) such as ox tail ravioli.

    Food Expectations :: Food Expectations 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 d&cor is plain, nothing very exciting and the restaurant was very busy on a Wednesday night.

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.
