Quirinale is an upmarket Italian consistently voted by Harden's and Zagat as one of the top three Italian restaurants in London. "It is smart without being grand, the sort of place where you can pop in at lunch time for a plate of pasta and a glass of prosecco", writes Toby Young in the Independent on Sunday. For him, it gets the nod as the best Italian in Westminster village. Located two minutes' walk from the Houses of Parliament, Quirinale is named after Rome's presidential palace and one of the seven hills of Rome. With interiors designed by David Collins (also responsible for Artesian at The Langham and Massimo at the Corinthia), the dining room at Quirinale is a light, airy space with cream leather banquettes, limestone and limed oak floors. Head chef Stefano Savio imports many ingredients direct from Italy to create dishes like bigoli pasta with duck ragu and porcini mushrooms, or fillet of venison with a shallot crust and chestnut puree. Excellent Italian food served in a stunning basement room.
