The chef

Head chef Luciano Stoto has worked in some of the best restaurants and hotels in Italy and London. On the menu that he has created for Gatti’s, he says: ‘Historically, Italy has always had the most skilled, well known and creative cooks in Europe. Through the centuries, they took Italian fine dining to new levels of refinement and prestige, and traditions like the generous use of spices and filled pastas became known all over Europe. At Gatti’s we follow that philosophy, using the freshest and best ingredients, cooking them simply but skilfully and elegantly’. 

Private dining

A hidden gem in the heart of Moorgate, EC2, Gatti’s is a classic Italian restaurant and bar with a timeless elegant décor, offering the type of refined cuisine which is consistently good and satisfying.  

Ideal for breakfast meetings, lunches or dinners, the private room offers a stylish décor and discreet service for up to 10 people.  Stylish and elegant, well-lit and comfortable, this is a beautiful room where to enjoy the delicious cuisine of Gatti’s which offers dishes such as Filetto di Manzo Scozzese – prime Angus fillet in a port wine reduction,  Branzino alla Griglia – marinated, grilled fillets of sea bass, Capesante – seared pacific scallops on a bed of spinach and bacon and probably the best Linguine Aragosta – pasta with lobster, this side of the Mediterranean. 

The main restaurant has a warm, uncluttered feeling, with the brick walls creating an unusual contrast to other walls covered in bronze mirrors, whilst iconic black and white prints inspired by classic Italian scenes provide an attention-grabbing feature.  This room can also be hired for exclusive use for up to 130 people. 

There is also a bar area which accommodates up to 40 people and is ideal for a cocktail party. 

Did you know? 

The name Gatti’s is thought to pay homage to Mr Luigi Gatti, manager of The Ritz restaurant on board of the Titanic on B deck, the Italian/French cuisine being so fine that it was reserved for the exclusive use of First Class passengers, and  in addition to the already sumptuous First Class dining saloon.
