Ponti's Italian Kitchen - John Princes Street says ?

For authentic Italian food in London’s West End, Ponti's Italian Kitchen restaurant provides a welcome oasis just off Oxford Street. Family-run since 1963, Ponti’s specialises in food from the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. Dishes are prepared using the freshest quality ingredients, and Italian classics enjoy a modern twist. The menu includes provenance info, so you’ll be able to see that, for example, your Parma ham actually comes from Parma. The open kitchen and wood stove oven create a sense of theatre, while salami, coppa, pancetta and prosciutto crudo suspended from meat hooks; and platters of large creamy balls of mozzarella di buffala, fresh green Italian olives, juicy vine-ripened cherry tomatoes, fresh focaccia and Altamura bread serve to whet the appetite. Apart from luscious sharing plates, traditional dishes dominate the menu, like lasagne al forno, made using the family recipe.

The concept of the latter is to showcase quality ingredients from the Emilia Romagna region of Italy, where the roots of the family that has run the restaurant since 1963 lie. The Oxford Circus location is an altogether different kettle of pesce to the rest; befitting of its location, well thought out and believably authentic...
