Italian | Mayfair, Belgravia

There are a few Cafe Muranos across town - but this is the main Michelin-starred flagship restaurant of Angela Hartnett. It's high-end Italian dining but with a relaxed vibe.

"But there you have it, an experience from start to finish almost impossible not to enjoy, from the supremely capable staff to the confident food, dishes of Italian influence using the best of British produce in clear and approachable ways." READ REVIEW

"The food was very good, sometimes close to great, but unless you absolutely can’t live without the champagne, I’d forgo the bubbles and get in on that lunchtime action for a fraction of the price." READ REVIEW

"Fabulous Italian food from Angela Hartnett, let down by careless service, very expensive extras and a dull room." READ REVIEW

"This was a sparkling meal by any standards, and you may never find a better set lunch for a pony than the one I ate. And yet that little voice nags away that this is a labour not of love, but of fealty." READ REVIEW

"All the fish dishes I tried were awesome. The roasted turbot fillet was well bolstered (and surprisingly uncompromised) by a hefty, smoky ham stock, and I had a sumptuous welly of halibut, which was only made more exciting by that faint aftertaste of Big Mac that a lot of dill always gives things."

"...it seemed churlish to be anything but delighted by this very good meal. But when your expectations about the talented Ms Hartnett are stratospheric, you're not satisfied by the merely very good." READ REVIEW

"I dive into the saddle of lamb with all the gusto of a Welsh hill farmer. It arrives with shoulder tortellini, grilled courgettes and lamb juice. The richly flavoured meat invites your teeth to sink into it and comes in the most delicate - though sadly singular and small - tortellini." READ REVIEW
