An exquisite yet subtly decorated Italian restaurant that rests besides Fitzroy Square Garden, Trattoria serves some truly sumptuous Italian fare.
Also known as Monte Bianco Trattoria, Trattoria celebrates everything Italian, from delectable dishes to wine tasting.
Members who call in advance can enjoy their fill of the former at an excellent discount, providing extra funding for the latter downstairs in the cellar.
Begin the experience with one of the sublime starters, such as the tantalising Polpette di Pesce, fish balls adorned with capers, olives and a cauliflower sauce, the rich Fegatini Toscani, a Tuscan bruschetta partnered with chicken liver, and the refreshing Prosciutto San Daniele, a medley of San Daniele ham and Parmesan cheese.
Continue onto the main course, which offer everything from palate pleasing pastas to divine meat based dishes. Particularly merit worthy meals include the rich Pesce Spada, grilled swordfish complete with vegetables, the invigorating Risotto del Giorni, freshly made and constantly changing as a weekly special exclusive to vegetarians, and the irresistible Tagliatelle al Sugo d Anatra, tagliatelle pasta drenched in a white wine sauce with duck.
Also catering to those with a sweet tooth, Italian traditionalists will adore the heavenly desserts, such as the divine Il Nostro Tiramisu and the indulgent Mousse di Cioccolato, while those who fancy something to calm their stomachs can simply savour some Italian coffees.
An ideal location for a special date night that requires a touch of finesse and a fine helping of glorious food, Trattoria makes for somewhere superb to dine.
