Considered by many as a London establishment, Scalini has been offering signature Italian dishes since 1988. The restaurant insists on sourcing its ingredients from suppliers in Italy to make sure they don’t compromise on taste or quality. Celebrities are no strangers to Scalini, with British reality TV star Simon Cowell reportedly seen enjoying dinner there. When in season, enjoy Fiori di Zucchine Primavera, the flowers of courgette stuffed with mozzarella, tomato and basil (£14.50), or indulge in an 800-gram chargrilled T-bone steak done ‘Fiorentina’ style. Be prepared to pay £42 for that particular taste of Florence, though.
