I'm not an enormous fan of Italian food so it was only on reccomendation from a respected source that I found myself at The Lanesborough. The source duly arrived and after a couple of apéritifs in the Library we moved to the dining room which had been refurbished since my last visit. Very smart and actually pretty impressive for a full time dining room.
We were seated and after a small complication with the drinks being transferred from bar to restaurant, I took a moment to study the menu. Starters mostly beginning with a 2 and mains all beginning with a 3 really needed to deliver here. I assume that the residents of the hotel would rarther wear these prices than risk their lives trying to cross the Hyde Park Corner intersection, they would be guaranteed a table if this particular Thursday night was any indication of normal capacity.
Tariff aside, there was absolutely nothing else wrong with this meal. It was ridiculously good and has caused me to question my own position on Italian food which hasn't happended since Theo Randall opened at The Intercontinental. I would wholeheartedly reccomend both the restaurant and absolutely leave enough room to sample the best in Italian Cheeses from their excellent Cheeseboard. Will return.
