Romantic Italian Restaurants in London

If food be the language of love, then there's one nation that speaks it more fluently than the rest. Italy is a country of homely cooking, excellent wines and sweep-you-off-your-feet romance, and while we can't bring you the azure blue seas or stunning backdrop of the Colosseum, London's Italian restaurants are a charming bunch. From candlelit tables to cosy little corners, we've rounded up the best Italian eateries in the city come date night - because that's amore.

With three restaurants across London, Radio Alice is making date night all the more delicious with their unique pizzas. Their ethos to the classic is simple: sour dough bases, only topped with extras once it's cooled, allowing you to fully appreciate the flavour.

Gotto Trattoria

5 user reviews 5

Mashing cool murals with Mediterranean tiles, Gotto Trattoria is a neighbourhood gem in the heart of Hackney. And it's not just the interiors, the space is fronted by the River Lea and come sunny days has al fresco seating; with handmade pasta this good, you could almost be in Italy.

Maremma

Named after the Tuscan region, Maremma brings some of that Italian spirit to Brixton in the form of freshly made pasta and stripped back interiors. The romantic spot isn't just easy on the eyes, the wine list features bottles not seen from the UK before, along with olive oil and meats sourced directly from Tuscany.
