Harden's survey result
“One of the finest Italian restaurants in London” for almost two decades, this is “near the Palace of Westminster, so frequented by MPs, journalists and lobbyists – but don’t let that put you off”. This clientele might explain why “tables are the right distance apart” in the “low-ceilinged basement”. Top Tip – “go in truffle season – divine”.
One of the top culinary attractions in striking distance of the Palace of Westminster (with a clientele incorporating many MPs and senior civil servants) – this “restrained Italian” in a basement is “discreet and quiet” and serves “classic food to a high standard”, alongside “an interesting and accessible wine list”.
“Precise and elegant” Italian cuisine, “lovely wine”, “exemplary discreet service” and “a rarity – a quiet interior”, make this “airy” (“but dull”) basement a perfect venue for entertaining MPs or senior civil servants from nearby Westminster; hence “it’s great for parliamentarian-spotting”.
“A great venue for parliamentarian-spotting – it’s easy to understand why lobbyists wine and dine MPs here”, when you consider the “exceptional” Italian cuisine (“consistently excellent without being overly fussy”) at this “high-quality” basement near Westminster. Also, “it’s a quiet room you can easily have a conversation in, and there’s an extensive list of Italian wines – what more could you ask for?”
