“Attentive” staff know how to treat expense accounters at this St James’s Italian, whose dependable cooking and “absence of riff raff” appeal to local pinstripes (including for a working breakfast); it can also seem a tad “boring” and pricey however, and “all those hedgies make a lot of noise”.
“Good enough, without being spectacular”; this “efficient” St James’s Italian certainly has a handy location, especially for business, and it rarely positively disappoints; it can can seem rather “crowded”, though, and prices are “high”.
A “lush” St James’s Italian, under the same ownership as nearby Wilton’s, which has been inspiring impressively consistent reports of late; its “well-spaced” tables make it a handy business destination, if not a bargain one.
Situated at the St James’s end of Jermyn Street, Franco’s is surrounded by the many lifestyle boutiques, private clubs, art galleries and hotels of the area.
Open all day, the personality of the restaurant evolves from a quietly and gently efficient breakfast venue to a sharp and charged lunch atmosphere, to elegance and romance in the evening.
The lunch and dinner menus highlight carefully prepared traditional and more modern Italian dishes and the relaxed and friendly service ensures there is always somebody to greet you with a smile.
