SquareMeal Review of
True to its horticultural moniker, Il Giardino’s big selling point is its lovely ‘garden room’ complete with tables shaded under umbrellas, an abundance of greenery & pleasantly verdant views
away from the hustle & bustle of the King’s Road. Those looking for a nibble make a beeline for the antipasti bar, which offers a classy choice of charcuterie & cheeses; others head for the
civilised calm of the muted dining room. Cooking matches the attractive surroundings, with some upmarket offerings such as deep-fried courgette flowers filled with anchovies & mozzarella or
linguine with lobster & chilli suiting affluent palates, alongside agnolotti with duck in wild mushroom sauce or baked rack of lamb with artichokes. If you have room, finish with tiramisu or
affogato al caffe. The Eurocentric wine list offers some interesting choices, including a number of biodynamic labels.
