This authentic Italian trattoria is the new incarnation of Almeida, with a menu that features colourful, traditional dishes from the likes of Puglia, Sicily, Basilicata and Campania – think doughy pizzas, aubergine parmigiana and roasted octopus. The region has also been captured in the restaurant’s design, with warm terracottas, rustic wood and exposed brick to really transport you to Italy. Ideal for an alternative take on traditional Christmas fare, festive parties here could take place in the main restaurant, at the bar or in one of the private dining rooms, which are well-suited to smaller groups. Whether it’s casual drinks and canapés, intimate group dinners, or a larger celebration, the venue’s event manager can help organise the annual office do.
