The best-tasting Italian food in London and a better restaurant than most in Italy.

Crafting the sumptuous flavours of Italy since 1999, Al Duca offers a modern retreat in the heart of the city. Offsetting the elegant dining room, continental-style pavement dining is offered during warmer climes.

Bursting with flavour and passion, the Al Duca menu offers an expertly executed range of classics. Sample succulent Luganiga sausages with polenta and fontina cheese, wild boar ravioli with meat jus, or signature Venetian-style calf liver with rosemary potatoes. Inventive desserts at Al Duca Piccadilly include chocolate aubergine with zesty limoncello mousse, or smooth nougat parfait.

For a typically Italian start to the day, Al Duca restaurant offers succulent Parma ham and frittatina, rich coffees and fresh juices. Sourced from across the breadth of Italy and the neighbouring islands, a sterling selection of wines is offered.

Exuding classic Mediterranean warmth, the dining room is decorated with swathes of terracotta and olive, rustic stone and mosaic tiling. Al Duca London sits 5 minutes’ walk from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station.

    Business dinner that needed to be of a high standard but informal. The set price menu idea is well executed, as the host all I had to say is "I am having three, courses" to put my guest at ease.

    Maybe the veal was a poor choice. It was chewy, and the carrots and mange-touts were so al dente I couldn't eat them. If it were not for the side dishes of potatoes and spinach I would have been left with just the tough veal. The younger members of my party, however, seemed satisfied, though as it was my treat perhaps they were being polite. Wines were not cheap, and the only half bottles available were extremely expensive.

    I don't like the 12.5% service charge automatically added to the bill when it is presented. If I am going to tip I pay cash to the person who has earned it.
