My partner thoughtfully booked La Cucina weeks in advance for my birthday meal. Tables are reasonably well spaced but it could get noisy if all are occupied and/or populated by rather vocal American ladies (e.g. last night). Our starters of chicken livers in a cream...More

My preferred place to eat in central London. There's always a warm greeting, plenty of friendly advice about the menu and great Italian food and wine.

of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
