Placed in the very heart of Covent Garden, VyTA is a sprawling Italian restaurant serving traditional dining in a luxurious setting. It’s not just pretty to look at though, as the food seems equally sumptuous, with Executive Chef Dino De Bellis channeling his Roman countryside upbringing into creating an authentic menu of creative, fresh dishes.

From breakfast to after-dinner cocktails, the bar and restaurant oozes Italian chic. Guests can start the day off with plates of pancakes, eggs and buffet options (with a dedicated breakfast meeting menu) with freshly-squeezed juices. Got a lunch date? The antipasti and piazzi menu of risotto, gnnocchi and rigatoni should be more than enjoyable. Then there’s the primi patti, with plates of homemade pasta, racks of lamb and slow-cooked pork up for grabs.

Like your cocktails with a view? With its prime position, VyTA’s terrace gives guests the chance to overlook Covent Garden with signature mixes like the Assoluto Manhattan with San Daniele washed Woodford, Cocchi Torino and Noilly Prat. For those who like a fresh take on a classic, the Old-Re-Fashioned is a must with Chivas Regal 12yo, Woodford, Diplomatico, and orange and black walnut bitters.
