Review on Sartoria
Sartoria is the Italian name for 'tailor', and this outpost of the Conran empire (now D&D London) aims to recreate some of the classic simplicity and elegance of restaurants in 1930s Milan. The restaurant has undergone an extensive refurbishment by David d'Almada, who took inspiration from Sartoria's Italian heritage and its location on Savile Row. Its a glamorous affair featuring a destination bar, cicchetti counter, two private dining rooms and a heated terrace.
It also has a new chef/patron, Francesco Mazzei, whose all day dining menu pays homage to Italian regions including his native Calabria. The kitchen seeks out the freshest seasonal ingredients and specially imported produce from artisan Italian suppliers for a daily menu that follows the traditional four-course format. Start the ball rolling with antipasti such as hand cut Black Angus beef, pickled truffle, anchovies or a selection of of raw fish, extra virgin olive oil and fresh chilli for two; then comes pasta and risottos (perhaps Marsala infused chicken broth with tortellini).
'Secondi' (main courses) could range from pot roasted Welsh Lamb with winter vegetables or soft black polenta, wild mushrooms, herbs, toasted hazelnuts and black truffle. Desserts naturally include tiramisù as well as roasted pineapple, or you could choose cheese from the trolley. The food is backed up by a fascinating, 200-strong Italian regional wine list (ask the sommelier for recommendations).
