About Trattoria Italiana Biagio

Trattoria Italiana Biagio is the original of six Biagio restaurants. Located on cobbled Villiers Street between Charing Cross and Embankment stations, it’s only a two minute walk from the Thames in one direction, Trafalgar Square in the other. Dark wood trattoria-style tables and chairs, numerous wine bottles, Italian photographs and prints, and pretty posies on every table create a warm, friendly space in which to enjoy an affordable pizza, pasta or whatever takes your fancy from the generous menu and specials list. The atmosphere is so cosy, it’s almost family-like. The most popular tables are those near the window. Lots of tourists eat here, and a business crowd regularly lunch here.
