Savini at Criterion is not just a restaurant but a representation of 150 years of Italian and English history, with Milan’s most celebrated hospitality name now showcasing the finest all-day dining in one of the world’s most spectacular and historic restaurants. Dating back to 1867, Savini is Milan's most famous restaurant, where Verdi, Puccini, Callas and Sinatra all came to dine.

Some 150 years later this iconic brand decided to introduce its unique combination of history, food, hospitality and ambience overseas. And where more fitting a location than the romantic and elegant Grade II-listed The Criterion, in the heart of London’s Piccadilly Circus.

Against a backdrop of timeless opulence designed by Royal Albert Hall architect Thomas Verity in 1873, this neo-Byzantine dining room and bar, with its fabulous gold ceiling and marble columns, now presents guests with a menu of authentic Italian dishes prepared with the finest seasonal ingredients.

By day Savini at Criterion is a Grand Café that offers a sumptuous setting for ritzy breakfasts, with the scent of freshly brewed coffee and home-baked croissants filling the air, along with languid lunches and indulgent afternoon teas featuring infusions from around the world and mouth-watering cakes and pastries.

But as the sun sets, so Savini at Criterion transforms itself into the capital’s most glamorous night-time destination.
The iconic long bar - where Sir Arthur Conan Doyle staged the first meeting between Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson - is the perfect spot for an aperitif or cocktail.

With the magnificent chandeliers illuminating the silverware, the restaurant then offers an evening of fine dining as executive chef Giovanni Bon offers his own take on celebrated regional dishes.

Reflecting Savini’s relationship with Italy’s finest suppliers, Savini at Criterion is also home to a vibrant in-house boutique offering a mouth-watering selection of regional delicacies, from traditional balsamic vinegars, pasta, sauces and mustards through to jams, honey, truffles and coffees.

Open from 8 am to 11 pm Monday to Sunday
