This was a very good business lunch. Thanks for arranging a quiet table for us. The squid as a starter, and ravioli, were excellent. The staff were attentive. Excellent, many thanks. Richard
Really good atmosphere, food served in good time and nicely presented
We love the Al Duca. Customers of 30 years standing and the quality keeps us going back.
We had been there before and it was excellent but they have changed the menu and we were disappointed this time
Had the seafood & pasta daily special. Pasta was al-dente - perfect - but the plate was not really warm enough, so the food cooled too quickly.
We had a delightful lunch with attentive staff and excellent food and wines
Visiting my daughter and her partner - Daniele was on very good form !
Delicious food and friendly service
A great choice of delicious dishes and a seriously good and well informed selection of Italian wines. Friendly, helpful and attentive service.
Lovely staff, pleasant atmosphere, however interior is a bit tired.
I have visited twice and have a mixed experience when it comes to food. Our beetroot carpaccio starter was lovely, but my pasta dish wasn’t what I’ve expected, not much flavour and way too al dente, I really struggled to finish it. In my experience this place can be hit and miss.
Staff was lovely and attentive, it was my friend’s birthday and they have surprised us with a dessert.
It has always been consistently good and yesterday was no exception. Excellent food!
Really good quality Italian restaurant with excellent wine list mainly good quality Italian wines great location and mid price for quality
One of the best visits I've made here. The Bresaola and the pasta of the day were both excellent
Good value- good service good food in an area of London where such restaurants are overpriced
Delicious food presented with warmth.
Al Duca is my new place to lunch. It ticks every single box; the food is excellent, the restaurant is quiet and classy, with mercifully barely audible music, very good service, delicious wines and an extensive choice whether you are vegetarian or not. The pricesare extremely reasonable.
Courteous service and excellent flavours. Good choice of wine.
The spinach and ricotta ravioli was the best pasta I have tasted outside of Italy. Fresh, soft and the filling was perfect. All washed down with a glass of Trebbiano - wish I could have had more, but I had to drive. The Tiramisu was perfect, not too sweet and very creamy. Bill was very reasonable. What a find! Will be back next time I visit the RA.
Excellent food & fantastic service in an authentic atmosphere
Lovely evening and really good food. Al Duca is really back to it’s old self
Excellent service, very good food
Not many vegetarian options
Nice small quiet restaurant with good attentive staff. Pasta is excellent. The beetroot was pickled and is not as we expected. Better. ot to have it. There could be a different starter. The burrat tomotoes qere really hard ie not ripe. There did not seem to be better options for starters.
The mains liver was excellent. Bread was good. Would have been nicer to have warm focaccia. Will go again. Lovely restaurant
Great restaurant in the heart of St James, London. Nice atmosphere, excellent service and great food. The pasta and seafood were really good.
We booked Al Duca - one of our favourite restaurants in London - for my wife’s belated birthday celebration in town. After seeing Six the Musical - also fantastic - four of us had dinner at Al Duca and from the moment we walked in to receive a warm welcome the night was fabulous. The service was prompt but not pushy the wine was excellent and the food was divine! All of the starters were magnificent - my prawns in Campari sauce were stunning - and after I braved the pasta course - another winner! - the mains were equally wonderful. My tuna was perfectly cooked and our daughter’s fiancé’s Chicken Milanese was enormous! The girls had brilliant crab pasta dishes. Really a faultless evening - thanks so much to everyone at Al Duca!
We had a lovely business lunch. Food was exquisite, ambience was just right for a lunchtime. Staff were incredible and attentive at all times. I have been to Al Duca many times and would highly recommend it for lunchtime and evenings.
Excellent food and attentive service, in a well-run and stylish restaurant. Set menu was very good value and the other prices were very reasonable for this part of central London. Plentiful variety of bread, biscotti with the coffee: nice to see these as included rather than extras. Wine list extensive and went beyond the usual suspects. Will return soon.
Really lovely food and staff, would definitely recommend
Another excellent meal, with professional and friendly service in a relaxed and comfortable setting; thank you!
Perfect place for lunch. Friendly staff delicious food and wine and brilliant service. Couldn’t fault it and far cheaper option than a lot of other places in the area.
A lovely lunch with wonderful food and good service. We ate at 2.30 so wasn’t full but it really didn’t matter.
Lovely lunch before the RA exhibition . Great wine
Excellent meal, good service. will be back when next in London
Very friendly, relaxed atmosphere with a good menu.
Friendly, attentive staff, brisk service, a reliable menu of Italian standards enthusiastically presented, sensibly priced wine, with some interesting choices - what is not to like about this Italian with a neighbourhood restaurant feel? And whilst £100 for two for a two course lunch + coffee and a glass of (good) wine each isn't the bargain of the century, it represents value when location is taken into account - just off St James's Square is pretty much prime real estate. Have been going to Al Duca since it opened, and will continue to do so
Great experience! Tasty food, really nice customer service.
Amazing service, all personnel was kind, attentive and helpful in deciding what to eat.
This restaurant ticked all my boxes of outside space not on a main road, very good food and not too pricey (in this prime location). Very happy.
Waiter was coughing and sneezing. Should not have been at work.
A great Italian restaurant. Nice location, good food & wine and a lovely Italian touch that always makes me feel at home.
