Italian Restaurants in Westminster
1. Osteria Dell’Angolo Italian restaurant in Westminster 47 Marsham St - SW1
“Ignore the lobbyists feeding MPs and enjoy this for what it is” – a smart, traditionally decorated corner-spot that’s one of the only restaurants in Westminster worth going to eat in! “Italian through and through”, it features “many regional dishes” and “unusual takes on traditional pasta and main courses (including crab, rabbit and quail)”; plus an interesting, all-Italian wine list.
2. Harry's Bar Italian restaurant in Westminster 30-34 James Street - W1U
Richard Carling’s cutely-situated yearling north of Oxford Street – his second ‘accessible’ version of Mayfair’s famous Harry’s Bar (which is still very much members only) – hasn’t yet hit the same level of satisfaction as its Knightsbridge sibling, Harry’s Dolce Vita. But most diners like its “spacious” interior and “good atmosphere”, and even those who say the food’s “distinctly average” can still feel “it’s a useful casual-dining addition”.
4. Circolo Popolare Italian restaurant in Westminster 40 Rathbone Square - W1T
Hot on the heels of launching smash-hit Gloria, the Big Mamma Group opened this even-more-ambitious follow-up – a larger (280-seat), Sicilian in Fitzrovia – in June 2019. Early press reports say they’ve absolutely nailed it for a second time, with their trademark maximalist pizzazz, which here incorporates an interior complete with spirit bottles lining the walls, festoons of foliage and twinkly fairy lights; and a pun-tastic menu of pizza by the metre.
5. Enzo's Kitchen Italian restaurant in Westminster 38 Panton St - SW1Y
Chef Enzo Oliveri and his Tasting Sicily company (both fans of the Slow Food movement) bring their touch of southern Italy to London.
6. Granaio Italian restaurant in Westminster 224 Piccadilly - W1J
Formerly Savini, this lavishly decorated space within The Criterion closed unexpectedly in early July 2018, and re-opened within a month as Ristorant Granaio, an Italian restaurant featuring regional cuisines from traditional 'grandmothers' recipes.
7. Il Sud Italian restaurant in Westminster 21 Berners Street - W1T
An "unfussy" southern Italian in Fitzrovia serving fresh pasta, regional Italian wines and decadent desserts. The set menu deals are great value for the area.
8. Norris's Italian restaurant in Westminster 3 Norris Street - SW1Y
On the former site of Veneta, an all-day Italian with evening entertainment; initially intended as a six-month pop-up until Spring 2019.
9. Sette Italian restaurant in Westminster Bulgari Hotel, 4 Knightsbridge Green - SW1X
The replacement for Alain Ducasse’s Bulgari (RIP) – the first London sibling to famous NYC restaurant Scarpetta opened in Knightsbridge’s Bulgari Hotel in June 2019, serving Italian classics. The seventh location for the group, this one is named Sette for “lucky number seven”, apparently. It opened too late for survey feedback, but received a major panning from Sunday Times critic, Marina O’Loughlin for pasta “sauced in the American rather than Italian way: drowned rather than dressed…”
