Nestled on the corner of Savile Row and New Burlington Street is Sartoria, a fabulous Italian restaurant, which combines Milaanese flair with modern British style. The light and elegant dining room combines space with a few quirky touches that play to the heritage of the area.

Sartoria’s head chef, Lukas Pfaff, joined the restaurant in autumn 2010, after 11 years at the helm of Il Convivio, an Italian fine dining restaurant in Belgravia. Lukas is passionate about classic and contemporary Italian cooking and using the finest artisan produce available from all over Italy. He insists on working only with the top importers and adjusts his dishes regularly to respond to the availability of the best seasonal produce.

The restaurant offers a ‘menu del giorno’ at £20 for two courses and £25 for three courses, which is offered at both lunch and dinner.  You can chose from antipasti, pasta and risotto, pesci and carni and dolci and formaggi.

I was lucky enough to have sampled a few of the dishes that were on offer, including massive seared diver scallops, served proudly on sea salt, with wonderful bright green cicorino. Expertly prepared home-made ravioli with sheeps ricotta, spinach, walnuts, sage and butter. Perfectly cooked roasted monkfish, served with crispy parma ham and a slightly sweet tropea onion puree. The combination of the milky firm fish and the salty crispy ham was amazing. And for pudding a Sicilian ice parfait with passion fruit, which was to die for!

Sartoria is open from Monday to Friday at lunch and dinner. On Saturday, it is open for dinner only.
