About Terranostra

In London's City district, moments from the Old Bailey and just a short stroll from St Paul's Cathedral, Terranostra is a sophisticated and chic Italian restaurant, totally different from the usual theme-ish trattoria. Huge floor to ceiling glass windows lead to a bright, airy dining room where sleek earth tones, from warm wood furniture to simple cream walls create a relaxed atmosphere. Street side dining is also available for those sunny days when people watching is the order of the day. The menu of Italian classics and Sardinian specialities is a million miles from a packet lasagne, using gorgeously fresh ingredients and unique ideas found nowhere else in the capital.
