Split over 2 floors, Four to Eight offers authentic Italian dining, where guests can watch the hustle and bustle of Covent Garden through floor-to-ceiling windows. Downstairs is a more peaceful, intimate scenario, where diners can watch the chefs at work in the open kitchen.

BBQ octopus with black garlic mayo and beetroot panna cotta form tapas-style starters on the Four to Eight menu. These can be followed by fresh pasta dishes, from simple carbonara, to more diverse venison ragu pappardelle with bitter chocolate. Alternatively, guests can select an item freshly-sizzled from the grill, such as the fish of the day, or veal chop, served with exciting accompaniments.

There are 100 different wines to be enjoyed with your dinner, including a selection of dessert wines to complement puddings, such as the spiced pumpkin semifreddo with almond biscotti.

In the hub of the West End, Four to Eight in London offers contemporary Italian fine dining in a chic yet relaxed environment. Covent Garden Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    Excellent food

    Had a great pre-theatre meal, predominantly off the set menu. Waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the dishes and was able to cater for 2 diners who were dairy free. Thought the set menu was good value and excellent food. My rump steak was the best I've ever tasted and was cooked perfectly. Considering we were a party of 8 on a Friday evening, the service was swift and pleasant. Would definitely recommend the restaurant

    It was very nice. The food was good and the service excellent, but £60 a head for pasta and rwo bottles of wine was very expensive.

    Poor starter , but redeemed by the high quality of service from the duty manager.
    The rest of the staff were sullen, didn't smile and didn't seem to want to be there. Perhaps if you didn't put an automatic service charge on the bill , the waiters and waitresses would provide a better service in order to earn their tips.
    No vegetables of any substance to accompany main meal ...had to order side orders.
    Overall it was very expensive for what we had.

    Good value pre theatre menu - a starter of Blowtorch Mackerel and main of Organic Salmon were vibrant and imaginative and both beautifully presented. A good, crisp house white at £22 was reasonable value from a list that jumps quite quickly to £30 +. The usual extras, like bread and veg, that always occur with set price menus, were not too steep - app £4 a dish - the crusty brown ciabatta style bread being particularly good. Excellent, friendly service.
