Il Ristorante at the Bulgari

Il Ristorante at the Bulgari

The luxury brand already has boutique hotels in Bali and Milan, as well as restaurants in Tokyo and has now arrived in London. The Head Chef is Robin Pepi, previously at Alain Ducasse's Italian restaurant La Trattoria in Monaco (and was previously at Aubergine and the Oak Room in London). Expect an 80 seater Italian restaurant and bar (with its own entrance) with a focus on contemporary Italian food. And don't expect it to be cheap.

"The menu is international Italianish for people who have never been to Italy, or if they have, have only eaten in hotels like the Vulgari. It’s not bad. This is not awful food: they wouldn’t discard it out of hand in a Sudanese refugee camp." READ REVIEW

"At a third of the price the meal would be good value and deserve more stars... one of the main purposes of the luxury business... is to cost a lot. It wouldn’t be luxury if it didn’t. Contrariwise, it doesn’t need to be otherwise remarkable to be luxury, we concluded." READ REVIEW
