The name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the now-notorious romps reportedly favoured by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi – no wonder this self-styled ‘Englishman’s Italian bar, pizzeria and karaoke’ has proved a hit with the Made in Chelsea posse and sundry partying royals. Festooned in retro souvenir garb, it’s a deliberate send-up of package holidays circa 1970 – think ‘gondoliers’ touting ‘aperitivo hour’ classics and interesting novelties such as a Canteloupe Collins built on melon and Parma ham-infused vodka. Spirits by the bottle are the thing in the Eurovision-themed party lounge upstairs, while Sicilian house vino by the carafe is the tipple of choice to go with cured meats, bruschetti and wafer-thin crust pizzas with cheesy names. To complete the offering, the top-floor ‘L’Osservatorio’, available for private hire, comes with telescopes for star-gazing – or indulging in some bunga-bunga voyeurism.
