L’Antipasto City, 2-4 Botolph Alley, London, England, EC3R 8DR

I recently spent a few days in London, England. It was lovely because I had time with my daughters. On my first mapevening there, my younger daughter and I looked for somewhere to have dinner that was near my hotel. She found L’Antipasto City. It is a bit tricky to find because the alley where it is does not really look like a regular street. It is near East Cheap and also Monument. It is very central.

The restaurant has a warm, cosy welcoming feel and the staff are attentive and friendly, but not overly so. However, L’Antipasto City is quite small, so it does get rather busy and you may want to consider booking a table. The menu is Italian, but within that it is wide and varied. We both chose pizza and enjoyed our meals very much. The meals are lanti pastofreshly made in a kitchen open for all the diners to see. The food is delicious.

I will certainly use L’Antipasto City again. The cost of our meals in central London was very reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant to you.

The Rowan Tree Restaurant, Ardrossan, Scotland

The Rowan Tree in Ardrossan, North Ayrshire, Scotland offers an excellent choice of food at very reasonable prices.  Four of us got together for Sunday Lunch.  Fortunately we had not eaten breakfast the portions are generous.  We had a choice of the Roast of Pork as well as the regular menu. which was varied from traditional fish and chips to home made Italian dishes.

ImageEverything, including the plates was hot and the food was delicious, the meal was freshly cooked and tasty and the coffee very smooth.  The bill for 4 including coffees came to a very reasonable £50.  Service was unobtrusive, but friendly and with typical west coast humour.

The restaurant offers superb panoramic views of the River Clyde and the ferry across the water to Isle of Arran.  There is good disabled access and a disabled loo on the same level.   I always enjoy a visit to The Rowan Tree Restaurant.  This visit was no exception.

Pizza Express, Bankside, London

At Pizza Express, Bankside, London, England, four of us met for dinner. We were all hungry and, although the service was slow, we enjoyed lovely fresh Italian meals including desserts. We had wine for the ladies and beer for the men. The restaurant was busy and lively as you would expect on a Friday evening, but the service was courteous, prompt and friendly without being intrusive.

We all ate and drank for just over £100, which in central London is remarkable! We enjoyed our meals and will certainly visit this restaurant again.
