Quaint restaurant along Lambs Conduit (nearest stations: Holborn and Russell Square). Warm and helpful staff. Casual unpretentious interiors. Take-away or dine in experience; either is satisfactory (this restaurant has a regular following). Fair prices. The pastries are really good! Will return.

In London for some exhibitions, staying over in Bloomsbury so we wanted somewhere within easy walking distance. La Gourmandina ticked all the boxes. They had already let us know that a large party had booked in so they suggested a variant of their sharing menu...More

Lambs Conduit Street these days is pretty much so hipster-central, for this part of Central London at any rate and has come a long way since I used to visit the legendary Shop 70A in the mid-1990s for cut-price Italian designer clothing. La Gourmandina is...More

went here for a quick business snack before our appointment in John Street.Service was excellent and everything came quickly and was very good. I only had a meat and cheese selection but it was very good and my client enjoyed the soup and a salad.

It's Italian, no, it's french, no it's Italian. No matter. It's great!!. You enter the place and don't be misled by the scanty food display, or the almost bare furnishings. Prepare yourself for a feast. These guys can make culinary wonders from both sides of...More

Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and
leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance
access to many of London's most popular attractions.
It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated
museums, including the must-see British Museum.
Despite an understandable popularity with students,
tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury
retain a quiet, residential feel year round and
