The distinctive Locanda Locatelli logo has long stood for some of the smartest Italian cooking in the capital, & the understated solidity of the dining room will always be a draw for those seeking a cocoon rather than a scene. Praise for Giorgio Locatelli’s ‘pretty simple’ food centres around his unerring ability to find great ingredients, & his pasta dishes are fashioned to thrill – just consider lovingly folded tortellini in crystal-clear brodo. To start, a little dish of porcini with rocket & parmesan is guaranteed to ‘knock your socks off’, likewise exquisite scallops with celery purée & saffron vinaigrette. Mains aim for something more robust, as in ‘simply divine’ monkfish with a walnut & caper sauce or char-grilled lamb with braised peppers & aubergines, while dessert always brings a fruity tart as well as a more intricate tasting of Amadei chocolate.
