Harden's says

This Petersham Nurseries development also includes The Delicatessen, which hosts an 'enoteca' every Wed-Sat from 5pm-9pm, with Italian wines by the glass from Petersham Cellar, aperitivo and music.

The courtyard on a summer’s day is a “top setting” and adds lustre to this swish Italian in Covent Garden’s relatively new Floral Court development. There was more appreciation too this year for Italian cuisine that – while “not cheap” – provides “lovely, fresh, simple dishes with super presentation”.

“Outside in the courtyard on a summer’s day is a very pleasant experience” at this good-looking, all-day Italian (complete with wood-fired oven) in Covent Garden’s recently constructed Floral Court development. No gripes about the food, but it’s not especially cheap, and service is “charming” but can be “wayward”.

“A promising start for one of Petersham Nurseries’ new openings in Floral Court” – this is the less pricey of their two new restaurants, serving pizzetti, antipasti, risotti, pasta and so on, which – on early feedback – were consistently well-rated. Well hidden, but in the heart of Covent Garden, it sits on a lovely courtyard, complete with outside tables; see also The Petersham.

For 31 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).
