About

Located in the heart of The City of London and housed in a spectacular Grade II listed building - the former home of the British Linen Bank - Piazza Italiana brings the ambience of classic Italian cuisine with all the glamour of fine-dining. Grand interiors including stone pillars and high ceilings, and warm neutral tones set a luxurious atmosphere that shows that every details matters here.

This ethos extends into the food with a menu of classic recipes from all over Italy, serving delicious plates at breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a selection of small plates from a cicchetti menu. While signature dishes like the tagliolini al tartufo, known for its theatrical flare of being spun in a pecorino wheel at the table, never go out of fashion, much of the menu changes regularly in-line with using fresh, seasonal produce. 

Current highlights from the dinner menu include pan-fried sea bass fillet with Sicilian tomato sauce, alongside risotto with prawns, asparagus and Parmesan, and mafalda corta pasta with beef and pork Bolognese sauce and Parmesan. Or, if you're in the mood to share, the bountiful cheese board sounds delicious with lashings of Blue Di Langa, Robiola Bosina and Il Canet with crackers, honey and jam.

The glamour of Piazza Italiana's menu doesn't stop at the main course with the desserts serving up the same level of finery. From a peach and Amaretto tart, to an intriguing rhubarb and custard flavoured panna cotta, guests can opt for something new or something a little more familiar with a tiramisu and lemon pavlova also on offer. 

With its extensive wine menu and a separate bar list for its signature cocktails, guests are looked after and will certainly not be thirsty. Piazza Italiana proves itself to be a fine establishment for both dining and drinking through its palate-enlightening seasonal menu, polished service, and extensive wine list.

Disappointing from start to finish. Clearly we don't deserve the same attention when we're young as we do when we're older adults. We arrived, the staff looked us up and down, didn't take our jackets and vaguely gave us the menus (not the same attention with the older adults who arrived after us and were greeted with the utmost care). On the à la carte menu, some of the dishes listed were apparently not available. The dish chosen was pasta with truffles, I'll leave you to look for the truffles on my plate. It was in fact pasta with cheese.

We wanted to pay with a gift card and the staff didn't even know how it worked, even though they are on the list of participating restaurants. I would not recommend this restaurant.
