Latium Permanently closed May 2018
You won’t find anything ground-breaking or trendy at this top-end ristorante, but Latium’s subdued class and premium produce have been impressing readers since 2003. While the interior’s black tiles, gleaming cloths, prints of Italiana and patriotic green and red leather seating are hardly big statements, its well-spaced tables, discreet service and mature, sedate atmosphere are clearly valued by regulars. Meals follow a traditional four-course format with, maybe, slivers of smoked duck, artichoke and Parmesan, or classic truffle and mushroom arancini as antipasti, ahead of speciality ravioli – try sea bass in lemon butter with bottarga, or veal in pea cream with morels. After that, grilled meat or fish feature as simple secondi (rib-eye steak with guanciale and green beans was a winner for us), while the tiramisu dessert is thick, rich and generous. The wine list is a serious selection spanning every corner of Italy’s topographical ‘boot’, and “affordable” prices are a bonus across the board.

Latium has class. We were a table of six and the rest of the restaurant was full, so service tended to be a bit slow. Other wise the food was excellent as ever, with their signature Pasta dishes making a great impression on diners who had not been here before.
The dinner made a most suitable pre-wedding occasion for family members who had travelled from afar and we all felt suitably cosseted and spoilt by a most delicious experience.

Five of us booked Latium after seeing the great reviews. We were not disappointed. The signature ravioli were delicious as was the pork belly, veal rump and zucchini flowers stuffed with mozzarella. The service was also great, with us only having to ask the waiter once for a wine refill.
My only comment would be that the atmosphere on a Saturday night was a little limp but all in all, a great experience.
As well as great food and service, this restaurant is excellent for access, facilities (good disabled loo) and attitude if you are a wheelchair-user. Entry from the street is smooth. You can sit easily in the wheelchair at a table (or transfer to a chair ) and the layout is spacious enough to manouevre round without disturbing any other diners. The staff are helpful and considerate. We found this restaurant after a huge amount of research both on foot and on the internet looking for somewhere to combine with a theatre trip. Excellent Itailian food – do try the ravioli!
