Restaurant description

The sister restaurant of highly acclaimed London restaurants Sardine and Rotorino, Palatino presents honest Italian cuisine in an edgy, industrial-style setting. There is an open kitchen for prime views of the chefs in action, and striking sunshine-yellow dining booths.

Compiled by acclaimed proprietor Stevie Parle, the Palatino menu is a masterclass in bold and flavoursome, yet simple Italian dining. Served alongside silky homemade pasta, enjoy the juicy onglet, chicken & pistachio meatballs, hunter-style game, or lobster with fennel & chilli. For dessert at Palatino in restaurant in London indulge in chocolate & hazelnut tartuffi, or zingy lemon, almond & ricotta cake.

Offsetting the exposed pipes, concrete and sharp angles in the dining room, the Palatino kitchen keeps things rustic with its wood burner, stone oven and ever-rolling pasta machine. Creative house cocktails are also served at the bar.

In the heart of London’s original ‘Little Italy’, Palatino in Clerkenwell is a 10-minute walk from Old Street Station.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    Palatino is a great place for a quick supper or a friends get together - we had a great meal and cocktails!

    The deal we booked was advertised as £19/pp for a 3 course meal and a cocktail. Upon arrival, staff did not present us with the deal and we had to request for it, and show them the booking confirmation. After the meal, we were charged £20/pp which on principal is not right. This leads us as customers to feel mislead. We paid was was stated on the bill, even though it wasn't right. Service was on the slower side but we weren't in a rush, and the waitors were genuinely trying their best.

    Really lovely...nothing was too much trouble. As a vegan it can be difficult to find appropriate menus but palatino offered tasty dishes. The theatre menu of 3 courses and a cocktail was exceptional value

    The restaurant staff were very friendly and accommodating. However the food was a disappointment. We had the set menu. The only thing good was the drunk we got at the start. The starter and main wasn't great.
