Square Meal Review of 21 Covent Garden ?

Three floors of Italian food, trendy drinks and good vibrations in a glorious Georgian heritage site on the corner of historic Covent Garden Piazza, 21 also boasts a vast outdoor terrace overlooking the street entertainment and touristy action. The vaulted cellar restaurant is reached via the lower courtyards of the southern halls and offers a cosy mix of candlelight and intimate booths – perfect for a romantic tryst or a friendly catch-up over a plate of pasta and a stone-baked pizza. The menu also offers sociable sharing boards, crostini, salads and mains such as rib-eye with truffle butter or sea bass cooked in a paper bag with baby leeks, garlic and rosemary, as well as pre-theatre deals. On the first floor is the glittering Print Room – a dedicated cocktail bar with two heated balconies, weekly DJs and a useful snack menu.

  1. I don't think I'm doing 21 Covent Garden a disservice when I say it's an 'everyday' restaurant. It's not the kind of place you'd go for a special occasion, although its setting and decor are perfect for a romantic rendezvous. Every table feels like it is its own private enclave and we were really impressed by what they had done with the place (apparently the cellar was previously disused and it was a pretty terrible touristy bar upstairs). The food is all Italian with the pasta all made in-house. It's the kind of place that is good for Covent Garden - somewhere that a Londoner can go and know they'll have a decent meal, not some swill being served because the place is full of tourists, and they won't get ripped off...

    Bestie and I meet at least once a month for dinner and a catch up. Usually I choose where we go, but this time she was invited by the PR of restaurant 21 Covent Garden to dine at their restaurant. Located in the piazza, a pretty prime location, I was surprised that I had never heard of this restaurant before. The area is a tourist Mecca and most of the restaurants and bars around there aren't that great in my opinion, so I wasn't all that excited about eating at 21. How wrong I was! Set over three levels, the restaurant is located in the vaults with the bar and a roof terrace on the upper levels. The restaurant is quaint and atmospheric and I think would be perfect for a date and as it was in our case, for a girly catch up...
