Al Duca

4-5 Duke of York Street, LONDON, SW1Y 6LA

1 rosettes

This upmarket Italian is tucked away in a discreet St James's street behind Fortnum & Mason. With its buzzy ambience and sensible pricing it's clear why the place is perennially popular. A concertina glass frontage folds back for alfresco eating on fine days, while chatty and knowledgeable staff also play their part. The repertoire of gently modernised Italian dishes has stood the test of time. Start with risotto with clams and saffron, followed by pan-fried fillet of cod with chickpeas and fresh tomatoes, or pan-fried pork belly with celeriac mash, sautéed Savoy cabbage and raisins. Finish with a textbook tiramisù or chocolate and almond cake with pistachio ice cream.
