The masterminds behind Craft, Dock Kitchen and Sardine have brought Palatino, a restaurant drawing inspiration from the rich culinary history of Rome.

Palatino takes advantage of the Italian city's long history of fusing different cultures within its cuisine, with influences from the middle East, Jewish diaspora and from across the country itself mixed into the dishes. The menu offers archaic recipes like chicken and pistachio meatballs with polenta and squash, or the slightly more fancy native lobster with chili fennel and fried potatoes.

But there's also Italian fan-favourites, such as pizza cooked in in their specialised oven and fresh pasta made in the restaurant everyday. This is rounded off by an extensive wine list split into three categories: classic, unique and special. Among the latter category will be rare wines bought from auction and those from limited batches of wine - perfect for wine connoisseurs hoping to treat themselves.
