SquareMeal Review of Theo's Simple Italian

For the past decade, Theo Randall has wowed punters in his flagship restaurant at the Park Lane InterContinental with some of London’s most accomplished Italian cooking. So the arrival of Theo’s Simple Italian – offering all the authentic, bold flavours at wallet-friendly prices – should have fans shouting ‘Fantastico!’. The interior is a cluster of cosy sections within Hotel Indigo, with wood-panelled walls and low-hanging industrial lights. Charming Italian staff guide you through the regionally inspired dishes. We began with a Negroni Sbagliato (Campari, vermouth, Prosecco), then moved on to a bruschetta topped with impossibly rich tomatoes and plentiful chunky, crunchy fritto misto. For secondi, rich, meaty fish stew stole the show, but the line-up of expertly cooked pasta – especially linguine with clams, artichoke and bottarga – is exceptional too. For dessert, white chocolate tart with a gentle chilli kick is divine. A stunning little package, well worth a trip to Earl’s Court.

Hi, John, its Amelia . What a great treat to buy me a drink. This is one of the few local casual dining restaurants with a good bar and wine list where the locals are treated like great neighbours. As a result, when I want to have dinner locally with friends, I think of you first. What is great about this place is : where do I start? The atmosphere is very relaxed but can be romantic, tinkling candles rustic surroundings, and convivial. Food is homemade by an Italian chef, who is happy to make something for you not on the menu. Everything I have eaten there( and must be about 8 times) is locally sourced and homemade, even the pasta. Recently I took an Italian Friend there for dinner, he is from Tuscany. The parpadelle was so fresh and homemade, we asked the chef to come and speak with us to tell him "complimentI". This is a real surprise for a hotel restaurant tucked away in Earls court, but not to be missed. See you soon. Good for couples family friends business and solo.
