This modern neighbourhood Italian on buzzy Seymour Place is ideal for private dining, whether it’s with friends, colleagues or clients. The capable staff at Bernardi’s are used to tailoring the private dining room and menus to diners’ needs, so whether it’s a low-key birthday dinner, breakfast meeting or full-on feast for a group you need to impress, just let them know.
The lower ground floor at Bernardi’s, which is handily located just two minutes’ walk from Marble Arch station, can be hired exclusively for private events of up to 40 seated or 80 standing guests and benefits from a relaxed and intimate feel. The space boasts its own lounge and cocktail bar meaning the setting is as suited to drinks parties and casual gatherings as it is to breakfasts, lunches and post-work soirees.
When it comes to the food, you know you’ll be in safe hands thanks to Bernardi’s reputation for fresh and innovative Italian fare. Feasting menus are served family-style (to share), though if you’d prefer individually plated dishes, these can be created on request. You and your guests can look forward to the likes of burrata, beef carpaccio and whipped ricotta and truffle crostini to start, followed by rich pasta, meat and seafood dishes – including Bernardi’s much-loved Gressingham duck tortellini with girolles and sage. Finish off with classic desserts such as Amalfi lemon cheesecake and tiramisu, followed by coffee and homemade chocolate truffles. A cheese course can be added for an additional supplement, and there are plenty of excellent wines (Italian and otherwise) to choose from.
The events team pride themselves on offering you as much or as little involvement through the event planning process as you wish, so if you have something in mind for your private lunch or dinner, you needn’t hesitate to let them know.
