Alloro

About Alloro

Alloro, a popular Dover Street restaurant in the heart of Mayfair, is always buzzing with a sophisticated crowd. Meaning bay leaf in Italian, Alloro serves up a menu of delicious and simple traditional Italian favourites with a modern twist, and all dishes are prepared using seasonal produce. The fresh bread, made on the premises, is worth the visit alone. Popular choices include the homemade pasta filled with pheasant served in its own sauce, and the Gragnana spaghetti with fresh lobster, garlic and sweet chilli sauce. Alloro also boasts its own bar - Il Baretto - which is a popular and stylish meeting place.
