Ristorante Frescobaldi – Italian – London

Great Location – Great Food – Great Service

Not too crowded but i like that it is just off Regent St and not crowded, decor and design is very pleasant and you are given both the a la carte menu and set linch menu. Both went for a set lunch menu and it was a good choice with the waiter able to take out the clams in the spaghetti for me and add garlic which was a nice touch and shows also it is made fresh.

Provided a great selection of bread to start and wish i had more time to enjoy them but had a time schedule and only an hour to order and eat and pay which we managed so a testament to the service as well.

Bear in mind there is an outdoor area as well which is nice during the recent nice weather we are having.

The lunch set menu came in at £25.00 per person for 2 courses.

Just had two course set menu this time and started with the Ham and Melon but you have three options for starters and mains to choose from and looking at their website this seems to change as the website menu is not accurate.

Ham and Melon – Really refreshing and good portion of ham which was light and delicious with great smoked flavour and the melon was fresh and just right. A great starter.

Spaghetti with chilli and clams – I substituted the clams with just garlic. Not the biggest of portions but not small either so for Lunch it is just right so you don’t feel too bloated. Spaghetti cooked well and nice light flavour with hint of chilli and good helping of garlic sauce but not too much. I really enjoyed the dish that tasted authentic and light. Not tomato based like so many other resturant and nothing wrong with that but its nice to be able to get a more authentic taste.

The menu does seem skewed to sea food and as I don’t really have sea food i was a bit worried but as they were able to accommodate and the food was really nice I was glad I went and asked.

In summary a nice place to visit and very convenient just a stones throw away from the hustle of Regent Street. Please decor and good attentive staff so worth a visit.

Hope to go again and experience more of the menu and give a more detailed review.
