Diciannove at the Crowne Plaza Hotel

Squaremeal Review of Diciannove at the Crowne Plaza Hotel ?

Some may remember when this spacious venue was Giorgio Locatelli’s Refettorio, but the “smart-casual” place now trades as Diciannove (literally ‘nineteen’), with a refurbished interior and a new ‘vineria’ occupying what was the unused bar area out front. Head chef Alessandro Bay is still at the helm and the menu offers a now familiar ingredients-led mix dominated by various ‘convivia’ – sharing plates of artisan charcuterie, cheeses and rustic breads with homemade sottaceti (pickles) and deep-fried vegetables. Otherwise, business suits, hotel guests and tourists can choose from a conventional line-up featuring, say, conchiglie pasta with monkfish, saffron ad Taggiasca olives or beef fillet with potatoes tortino, sautéed leeks and veal sauce, followed by zabaglione or amarena (sour cherries served warm with ricotta and pistachio). The food is matched by a well-chosen all-Italian wine list.

I Miss Refettorio.

by   silver reviewer (22)

This restaurant recently changed its name from the previous Refettorio so one can assume that it has new management. The staff who receive you are the same and they are outstanding and friendly. The menu is still very good and the food delicious if perhaps lacking the former sparkle and tending more to the mundane. Happily, the new owners have retained the former practice of having starters serve also as more substantial main courses. I strongly recommend the tagliatelle with beef and pork ragout...

Well – I was recommended this restaurant by few of my colleagues so, decided to give it a try. It was brilliant, professional, knowledgeable friendly service which was complimented with great, fresh and tasty food, a dynamic wine list and an Italian maitre d' with a russian name who knows his stuff. Well done! see you again very soon.
