Zafferano Restaurant

Italian fine dining in London for over 20 years

Trying to live not worser than others, and in this case it was the desire to enjoy delicious spaghetti with truffles for lunch, i entered Zafferano Restaurant located in the heart of Belgravia and famous for its seasonal menu change. The Restaurant promised to serve special summer truffles which could not be met at other time of the year – unique feature for London Italian Restaurant.

Having ordered Thinly sliced veal with tuna and caper sauce as a starter i have chosen Tagliolini with white truffle as a main course. My choice was right because it appeared that this dish was a jewel in the crown at this restaurant. I finished up with a Pistachio semifreddo with dark chocolate and oranges drinking a glass of white wine from the restaurant’s special highlight – wine cellar where 770 bottles of the best international and Austrian wines and champagnes were stored.

Despite that the wine menu was extensive including most prestigious selections from France, Italy and other wine capitals such as San Michele-Appiano Montiggl Riesling 2014 or Barida Alta Bianco 2013, prices were above average and twice higher than those at the Highstreet shop. It could be seen reasonable because of the big name of the Restaurant which used to have a Michelin star. All in all, the bill came to 72 pounds a head at lunch with a glass of good wine to drink.

Design of the Restaurant reminded of  loft style, combining industrial and bohemian features via eye-catching touches such as hand-painted, Italian inspired motifs and exposed brick on arched ceiling.

It was impossible to call Zafferano Restaurant as an unsurpassed place, but the quality of its service and the dishes served with truffles were extremely close to perfection.
