Locanda Locatelli is located in the West End at a swank Marylebone address adjacent to the Churchill Hotel. It’s praised for its stylish interior and friendly conviviality as much as for the quality of its food. Helmed by Giorgio Locatelli, revered as one of the finest Italian chefs in the UK, it’s one of London’s finest Michelin-starred restaurants. Chef Locatelli was born in Northern Italy into a multi-generational cooking family, thus his menu focuses on traditional Italian dishes. He looks to all regions in Italy for ingredients, ideas, and inspiration.
Diners rave about the breadbasket with focaccia and mile-high grissini, said to be “a meal in itself.” The avowed favorite of many diners? The Linguine with Cornish Lobster, Tomato, Garlic and Sweet Chili. The sommelier team is very knowledgeable about the extensive wine list, which covers Italian wines in depth, even the lesser-known regions, featuring a well-chosen assortment of quality producers.
