At Theo Randall, you can be sure to find only fresh and seasonal dishes on the menu. Based on traditional Italian recipes, the dishes are prepared with attention to detail and passion. The kitchen prepares honest and unpretentious food both simple yet lovingly presented. Among guests’ favourites are dishes such as roast rack of new season's spring lamb with wood roasted carrots and beetroots, Roman artichokes and salsa d'erbe, Scottish wild salmon fillet with grilled zucchini, peppers, aubergines and anchovy sauce and mixed winter green ravioli with Swiss chard, rocket, cima di rape, sheep's ricotta, butter and sage.
The biggest draw for many here, though, will be the pasta. Randall is rightly known as one of London's foremost authorities on pastas, having been invited to write a recipe for the English-language of the legendary Italian culinary bible The Silver Spoon. He made his name at the Michelin-starred River Cafe and Chez Panisse in California where he cut his teeth working beautifully fresh ingredients with a variety of handmade pastas.
The fact that high quality has its price is underlined with the prices for the dishes. A bottle of the house wine costs £25.00 and even more extravagant choices are available.

The waiting staff and the kitchen team are professional and very well-informed. Ask one of the waiters for a recommendation and they'll be happy to recommend a wine pairing to suit the your budget and the dish in mind.
