Lunch at Attilio's, an escape from busy streets of London. Moment I walked in I felt relaxed and welcome. I had a fantastic seafood risotto and a glass of house white, a strong cappuccino, yes I asked for it, was a perfect 'finale'. Highly recommended.

Fabulous food. Four different dinners and everyone raved about their choice. We loved the limoncello and cookie after our dinner.

We came across this modest-looking Italian while exploring the Faringdon/Clerkenwell area before an evening at the Barbican. The restaurant looks and indeed is small but it has a big heart with excellent food and really friendly service - it felt like a typical neighbourhood trattoria...More

Stumbled upon this humble Italian restaurant before a theatre show. They have a set menu available for £15.95 which includes a starter & main as well as dome bread & olives and a shot of limoncello or amaretto. We enjoyed an easy drinking Trebbiano. We...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough

you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky
