This March, chef “Lello” Favuzzi–previously of L’Anima fame–brings his ambitious talent, enthusiasm, and technique to Mortimer House Kitchen, in the heart of London’s Fitzrovia. Having spent 10 years running one of London’s most celebrated Italian restaurants, Lello returns to creating simple and irresistible plates, bringing a vibrant and joyful Mediterranean menu to the sophisticated neighbourhood restaurant and bar. The mid-century interior of Mortimer House Kitchen features an eye-drawing central open kitchen, relaxed lounge seating, an elegant bar, and a glass-ceiling conservatory that can be transformed into a private dining space with the simple throw of a curtain–all of which is intricately woven together to create a calming aesthetic and inclusive environment that sparks social repose.

Private Dining

Located in the heart of Fitzrovia, Mortimer House is providing an experience for those who wish to create, work and unwind in equal measure. Whether you need a private room or planning a cocktail party, our event space and private dining rooms would be perfect, all serving Mediterranean cuisine.

Loved the size and brightness and decor of this restaurant. Perfect for a lunch /brunch with friends. Informal spacious layout and relaxed vibe. Magazines and papers for reading and no pressure to order. Service was a little too relaxed maybe but once we ordered it improved. Loved the bread and tomato tahini side order they brought us and food was generally good although my chicken salad used rather slimy bits of grey thigh or leg meat which was surprising. Not lacking in taste but I didn’t like the texture. Would go back ! Priced inline with the area and quality.

Last minute booking accepted. We were happy to see the kitchen running in front of us, lively and fresh.
We enjoyed our dinner so much, the bread was simply great! The only thing was the beef carpaccio's sauce was a bit overpowering. Otherwise all went very well, with the friendly lady serving us throughout the entire dining experience. The mille-feuilles was another highlight, it looked ordinary but tasted heavenly good, pairing with the orange peel, mmmm.

I really like Mortimer House - I've eaten there twice. I ordered the Croque Monsieur on Saturday and I have to say with hindsight I was a bit disappointed with it. There was hardly any cheese inside or ham and no garnish which for a tenner was a bit of a shame. Probably should have flagged this up at the time but was enjoying the ambience and company too much to think about it.
It won't stop me returning though. (and I know the head chef is very reputable)

A gorgeous room and excellent, friendly service. A very tempting menu with lots of dishes that appealed. We had two salads for our main courses - a halloumi one and crab one and my only criticism is that the portions were a bit mean, particularly of the halloumi and crab. Otherwise everything was excellent. A great place to meet people.

There was a great choice of dishes on the menu, and the idea of small, medium or large plates was a very good one, and was very flexible.
The atmosphere was very good and we were impressed with all the front of house staff.
Would definitely recommend to all our friends.

We asked for our starter and mains together and only our starters came. then we waited for 45 mins for our main after asking again where our food was. I think they forgot all about our mains.

However, the restaurant did give us a small discount to the overall price.

Great space and loved the vibe. We had a very unfriendly who was not welcoming at all- it was uncomfortable. Maybe he was having a bad day and took it out on us.

The food was basic and the menu was limited- no appetisers or started but rather 'medium' and 'large' dishes. I ordered the steak and it was very disappointing and came with sad looking chips. When I asked if they had any sauce for the steak, the waiter said ketchup...!

My wife and I enjoyed our time here. The food was good and service was too.

My wife has some food intolerances and an incorrect dish was brought but then quickly replaced.

I have been for lunch before which had more atmosphere and much of the restaurant was quiet dark for dinner.

Slightly expensive at £70 ph which included two glasses of red and a negroni ( one 2 course one three course ) but I suppose that's what a decent meal costs in town on a Saturday night.

We will return.

Dined there Saturday afternoon for brunch. Nice setting, nice ambience - ruined at times by an exceptionally noisy table nearby. Food ok, somewhat bland and not memorable. Drinks ok. Price ok but overall just not worth it.

we ordered the so-called “big plates” but they were small portions and we were starving. my order was an octopus with potato and it was only one small tentacle with one potato! because of this i ordered extra fries but it took 15 minutes for them to come, by which time the main was cold. i asked the waiter about the status of the order and he was upset that i asked and acted rude for the rest of the meal. the coffee was not very hot either. i feel it was pricey but not worth the value given food and service.

I came here for lunchtime catch up with an old friend. A wonderful dining experience. All the staff were really friendly and very attentive. Customer service here is excellent! The menu is varied and the food was delicious, although the portions sizes are quite small for the price. Overall a lovely experience.

Had a fantastic night here with the Mrs last night for valentine's. It's a laid back casual dinning experience with exceptional food and hospitality from our server.
The food came swiftly and we were fully satisfied by the time we paid the bill and left. Definitely coming back here again very soon!

The atmosphere is very nice and food was great. Delicious crab salad and my octopus main was really good. Was £50 a head for a shared starter and two courses. My main was sold as a big plate but definitely seemed like a medium/small one and was expensive. Didn't feel like great value for money so probably wouldn't go back.
