Zafferano has always held its head high among the upper echelons of the UK's contemporary Italians, ever since Giorgio Locatelli opened the place back in 1995. The kitchen gives classic dishes a sophisticated spin and superb ingredients remain at the heart of it all, starting with antipasti like cured bresaola beef with rocket and goats' cheese dressing. Pasta dishes here are something special - perhaps veal osso buco ravioli with gremolata, or paccheri tubes with aubergine, nduja sausage and salted ricotta. Secondi could be pot-roasted monkfish with sautéed chard and pine nuts and sultana sauce, or classic chicken paillard. To finish, honey pannacotta might be paired with white grape compôte.
