Summary

To avoid breaking the bank in swanky St James’s, this long-established Italian is worth remembering thanks to its “reasonable food at sensible prices”. On the downside, “there’s no real ambience, but it can be fun to take a coffee at a pavement table and watch the world walk by”.

Summary

Low-key St James’s Italian that’s worth knowing about in this posh location. The harsh would say that the food quality is merely “fairly ordinary” or “reliable”, but “given its position in the very heart of London, it delivers on value better than some of its central competitors”.

Summary

“No more expensive than some chains, but with better and varied Italian staples” – this “slightly tucked-away”, low-key St James’s fixture is boosted by its “attentive and friendly staff”, and has for many years now provided a consistently “pleasant” and “reasonably priced” experience.

Summary

This low-key Italian is a well-established fixture – particularly on the St James’s business lunch scene – with a “mainstream, satisfying” menu of modern classics that “never disappoints”, and which is “good value” for this part of town.
