“An old haunt of style and enjoyment” – this Sardinian was the original in Mauro Sanna’s upmarket Belgravia group – “an absolute banker for consistency”. “The freshness of the cooking and the delightfully different wines” make it a “great lunch venue”, although – this being SW1 – it’s “now outrageously priced”.

“Still the go-to Belgravia Italian” – the “consistent” and “friendly” flagship of Mauro Sanna’s upmarket local Sardinian group has been a fixture of the area for over 20 years and inspires more-than-local acclaim for its deft, “light and fresh” cooking alongside “some truly delicious wines” on a Sardinian list.

“The original of this Belgravia chain of Sardinian stalwarts” – this “friendly and efficient” fixture is a “classic Italian” which provides a “failsafe choice, with excellent seasonal specials”. “A very welcome refurbishment means it’s even now possible to hold a conversation while eating!”

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
