Quirinale

About Quirinale

A blaze of white and beige, this casually elegant basement restaurant virtually on the banks of the Thames serves exquisite Italian fare to foodies, politicians and those who know a good restaurant when they find it. Highly recommended dishes from highly acclaimed head chef Stefano Savio include the Timbale of crab, avocado & tomato , Spaghetti with lobster & broccoli. You’d be mad not to sample the cheese selection, helped perhaps by the charming and dedicated manager, Valentina Cassandro. The wine is pricey, but since when did quality come cheap?
