This family-owned Italian restaurant brings comfort together with class and style to give diners an unforgettable hospitality experience. Quindici offers an inviting contemporary interior with warm lighting and an airy, spacious feel. Sit at the bar, dine at one of the simple but elegantly laid out tables or enjoy the sunshine with the outdoor seating.
Quindici has brought the taste of Italy, alongside a few global accents, to Loughton. The service, delicious meals and relaxed atmosphere keeps its customers coming back for more. Years of experience is reflected in the complexities of each dish as they are carefully constructed by marrying authentic recipes with a modern European twist and bringing the finest fresh produce straight from trusted suppliers to your plate. Open from midday Tuesday to Sunday, pop by and savour the flavours of fusion cuisine.
Starters include seafood and traditional options with a difference. The gamberoni alla Quindici steals the show with king prawns tossed in chilli, tomato, garlic and scrumptious Pernod butter or choose between three bruschetta options, all offering a unique take on the native dish. Enjoy one of Quindici’s signature mains, such as the tagliatelle con filetto e funghi, a creamy pasta dish with strips of fillet steak and mushrooms or feast on the fresh catch of the day and try the grilled fillet steak, the filetto alla griglia served with sautéed potatoes and slathered in your choice of three delicious sauces: mushroom, dolce latte or peppercorn. Finish in style and decadence with profiteroles drizzled in white chocolate, a custard-filled pine nut tart or a classic crème brulee. The wine list features a few big names and is kept authentic with plenty of Italian grapes showing face.
Don’t miss out on the Sunday lunches either, serving up a slightly different menu featuring a seafood cocktail and deep-fried Camembert for starters, followed by luxurious roasts – chicken, porchetta, beef sirloin and lamb rump with seasonal vegetables, before ending with the cheesecake flavour of the week.
