A good and comfortable Italian (another interior from the David Collins stable), geared primarily to the business market, and the political life of Westminster - hence its opening hours, and closing spells.
The menu list a blend of classical dishes, with those more modern - the former often given untraditional twists.
A summer version included 'Grilled Courgettes & Asparagus with Buffalo Ricotta'; 'Warm Spelt Salad with Baby Octopus & Fresh Peas'; 'Warm Cauliflower Timbale with Egg, Crispy Bacon & Black Summer Truffle' and 'Vitello Tonnato - thinly sliced veal with tuna sauce' among the starters.
There are various pasta dishes, such as 'Lobster Ravioli with Broccoli' and a Risotto of the Day - which can be taken as starters or mains.
While more sturdy mains might include 'Pork Saltimbocca with Prosciutto & Sage and Balsamic-Glazed Onions'; 'Breast of Guinea Fowl with Courgette & Black Truffle'; 'Sea Trout with Shallots, Almonds & Asparagus' and 'Halibut with Artichokes & Mint'.
Twists on classic desserts might include 'Mango Crème Brulée'; 'Citrus Fruit Salad with Campari Sorbet' and 'Liquorice Tiramisu with Honey-Glazed Nuts'.
