Replete with “old-school Knightsbridge”, Signor Sassi is still a local hit more than three decades after opening its doors in the moneyed enclaves of SW1. It’s no mean feat to hang on to your long-standing admirers while winning over newcomers, but this place pulls it off with a combination of genuine warmth, bubbly vibes and unfailingly good food. Navigate a vast menu that stays true to classic trattoria cuisine (more like the stuff you actually get in Italy) – everything from mussels and clams in white wine with tomatoes and garlic to osso bucco with saffron risotto or beef tagliata with balsamic, brandy and rocket. There’s also plenty of traditional pasta (tagliolini with crab, garganelli with spicy sausage etc), plus a list of ‘daily specials’ that just seems to run and run. Signor Sassi’s jaunty turquoise facade is unmistakable, likewise its driftwood and mirrored interior.
