Instantly recognisable from its interiors, Sketch has become a bit of a bucket-list restaurant for London foodies. But the 'grammable venue offers more than just dreamy aesthetics; the menus here are pretty amazing too, with everything from afternoon teas to seven-course tasting feasts.

Stepping into Circolo Popolare is a little like stepping into a fairytale. Adorned with hanging flowers, candles and fairy lights, this trattoria takes the crown for Italian romantic restaurants in London. Famed for its giant cheese wheels full of pasta and 10-layer lasagnas, the Fitzrovia den is a feast for the eyes in more ways than one.
