Italian Kitchen

About Italian Kitchen

Traditional Italian home cooking is the order of the day in this West End Italian restaurant in the heart of theatre-land. The Italian Kitchen has a rustic feel reminiscent of those little trattorias you find in Tuscan villages. Dark wooden beams and gingham table clothes keep the interior just the right side of being twee and the atmosphere is welcoming and relaxed. Loyal regulars come back again and again for never-changing favourites, but seasonal additions keep it interesting. Start off with a traditional antipasti and move to freshly prepared pasta or pizza. Save room for desserts -- the panna di campagna fantasia (apple bread pudding served with hot caramel sauce) should definiately be on your don’t miss list.
