The Latium Restaurant derives its name from an area of central Italy, near to where Rome was founded. As you may have guessed, then, the restaurant serves fine Italian cuisine in an impressively stylish setting, and has quickly garnered a reputation for delivering an impressive ambience that attracts a diverse clientele. Opened to critical acclaim in 2003, Latium has forged a formidable reputation among its peers, and is situated on Berners Street, just north of Soho in London's West End, making this a great pre or post-theatre choice of diner.
Open every weekday from noon for lunch, and again at 6.30pm for dinner (including Saturdays), Latium is a great option for shoppers seeking a place to rest their feet, refuel with some healthy and fresh Italian cuisine and enjoy a coffee or glass of wine, while also attracting local workers on their lunch break during the day. In the evening and at weekends, the graceful décor combines well with the pleasant attentions of the professional team of staff to deliver a charming atmosphere that is both intimate and vibrant, making it the ideal venue for a romantic meal or something altogether more fun and frivolous with friends and family.
A contemporary exterior hides the traditional Mediterranean warmth that awaits within Latium. All regions of Italian cuisine are carefully and lovingly reproduced here, although there is particular focus afforded the Lazio region. All dishes are exquisite, with particular attention paid to the ravioli menu, where all options are based around a complex and unique ravioli base, with individually-wrapped pastas concealing all manner of gastronomic delights. Aside from this, specials worth mentioning include the pan-fried scollops with white onion sauce, grilled aged sirloin beef with parma ham and canneloni beans, the braised veal with polenta, roast breast of Gressingham duck with wilted spinach and blood orange, and the exceptional slow-cooked pork belly with cabbage.
