Summary

“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”.

Summary

“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”.

Summary

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.

"St James's stalwart continues to do what it does best. Good italian food in a very homely and welcoming atmosphere. One local couple even had their dog a sleep under the table!"
