50% off at Diciannove Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar

Diciannove Italian Restaurant & Wine Bar is located opposite Blackfriars station in the Grade II-listed Crowne Plaza London City Hotel, and serves up some of the most contemporary and authentic Italian fare in the heart of London.

Built on the foundations of King Henry VIII's Bridewell palace, the hotel was formerly a prison and a bank before finally finding its feet as a Double AA Rosette award winning Italian restaurant.

Diciannove's Executive Chef Alessandro Bay, who trained in Michelin-starred London eatery Locatelli for a decade, will serve you home-made pastas such as tasty beef and pork ragout and Spagettini all’ Astice: spaghetti tossed with fresh lobster, Pigato thyme and fresh tomato. If you’re after something other than pasta, there’s a fine selection of secondi, such as chargrilled swordfish, or the popular Filetto di Manzo: beef fillet with potatoes tortino, sautéed leeks and veal sauce.

All of this is carried out amidst weekly Thursday live Jazz nights and monthly regional gourmet dinners. The wine bar serves the finest of Italian wines by the carafe alongside a Chichetti snacks bar menu.

    The food was satisfactory but a bit too salty. We ordered two course meal with dessert and two glasses of juice. The bill came to about£72 after discount which is too pricy for regular eating here. But overall OK experience. "

    Very easy to use the Tastecard, even on a Saturday evening for three of us.
    Lovely setting, beautifully large tables, very soothing atmosphere.
    It is a very minimal menu for choice, but I guess most people would have checked that prior to attending. The food that we all had, we all agreed, was simply gorgeous, The monkfish pasta was lush !! All three of us enjoyed our meals, even when the side of potatoes had to go back as there was no mention beforehand that they come with garlic on (bleurgh!), the staff were marvellous, and changed them without question.
    The offer was 50% off, which for a Saturday night in that part of London was quite welcome. Very friendly staff, there when needed, not at all over bearing. "

Both the manager and staff made us feel very welcome and the food was amazing - I am still thinking about the prawns I had- WOW! We had a lovely time and will definitely be returning again one day soon hopefully. "

    I cannot fault the food - had a lovely meal and the Taste card discount was brilliant. However, the service charge was extortionate at 12.5% which worked out at almost £18, which was just for 4 people. When we politely asked them to remove the service charge (as we wanted to pay service separately) they questioned why, and made it awkward and intimidating. Service wasn't even that great to be fair. However, the food was exceptional and well worth it if you are a foodie! "
