Quirinale is one of London's best three Italian restaurants, says critic

Quirinale is one of London's best three Italian restaurants, says critic

The Quirinale in London SW1 is described as possibly "one of the three best Italians in London" by Toby Young for the Independent. The restaurant is awarded 15 out of a possible 20, but Young admits the five-course evening tasting menu was better suited for him than his vegetarian wife.

"All in all, a pretty good experience," he concludes.

He describes his meal at the Caterer & Hotelkeeper's Best for Business restaurant as a "bargain lunch with great rural ingredients and even greater potential."

Matthew Norman of the Guardian finds Theo Kyriakou's latest venture, More in London's SE1, a paradox. He is unsure whether this is a "one-off labour of love or a pit canary to test the profitability air with a potential chain in mind."

Norman describes the restaurant as "bustling, unpretentious and full of fun, and so, albeit a touch patchy, is the cooking."

Simon Parker-Bowles's Green's Restaurant and Oyster Bar in London EC3 "must be the most depressing restaurant in London" according to AA Gill in the Sunday Times, who awarded it no stars out of five.

In particular, Gill was disappointed by the size of the oysters which "looked like the excavated effluvia from a dwarf's sinuses" and the smoked salmon which "smelt of kipper and cat breath and tasted of fisherman's inner sole."
