Bertorelli Italian Restaurant in Covent Garden, London
Bertorelli is an Italian chain restaurant that manages to maintain a sense of authenticity. It has two options of places to sit - the more laid back downstairs café area or the more formal upstairs dining room. If you're walking past the restaurant's large glass windows and a waiter passes by with one of Bertorelli's signature antipasti platters, you'll feel compelled to find out more (I know that I was!). As should be the case with Italian food, dishes come piled high with colourful and fresh ingredients. The restaurant attracts a young and cosmopolitan crown, particularly at lunchtimes.
