Forget flashiness and trickery, people flock to Gatti’s for its friendly staff and ‘old-fashioned charm’. Don’t expect new-wave Italian decor, either – this solidly dependable Italian veteran keeps it simple with a well-lit dining room, smart wooden furniture and crisp white tablecloths. Regulars simply love it, and happily lap up tempting bowlfuls of linguine with lobster and tomato sauce or garlicky spaghetti vongole. Starters could see forest mushrooms with garlic and parsley or cured beef with rocket and Parmesan, while City boys can power-lunch over prime fillet and rib-eye steaks, before taking their pick from the creamy delights arrayed on the dessert trolley. The wine list is a further plus, brimming with Chianti and Amarone alongside a few bottles from further afield. ‘Always a great place to eat’, coos one contented customer – and we’d certainly agree.
