Restaurant description

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.

    This is a restaurant which, as a local eatery, I and my friends treat os a certain winner. However...recently the service has fallen off considerably. The food is still amazing - our stuffed squid was a masterpiece - but I am not used to having to ask five times for some service only tobe told "it's coming" (which it wasn't!).
