Cecconi's is simply put an all round winner for friends, family, business and romance . It's principal selling point being its vibrant buzz and an interior that breathes 50% nineties wow and 50% modern Italian which leaves you with a sense that it's something special as soon as you walk in. This is designer dining darling, with dishes as sharp as an Armani suit and a crowd that looks like they should be acknowledged even if it is for some obscure achievement, a celebrity, London socialite or general bigwig.
My only concern was whether the food and service were up to scratch but one look at the menu (and the model like waiter with manners included) made it clear they certainly were. We opted for a few of the cichetti dishes to share – sort of Italian tapas – with gorgeously cooked ricotta filled courgette flowers, succulent grilled scallops, fresh quails eggs and firm asparagus. smaller mains filled with Italian essence went on to fill the stomach with glee but still leave space for an ample -and dare I say it – orgasmic tiramisu to share. Wine list as expected leans towards the Italian geography but with plenty of choice, the Gavi is particularly good.
A pleasurable and luxe dining experience in the hear tof Mayfair, a voyeur's dream and the food's not bad either…what else do you need. Definitely will be back for more.
