About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Virtually on the very banks of the Thames, Quirinale is a casually elegant restaurant with charming service and delectable Italian food. A favourite of discerning Londoners including a good number of politicians from the nearby Houses of Parliament, Quirinale is a simple, classy spot where you’ll experience refined but attentive hospitality from the superb front of house staff. Known for producing some of London’s best high end Italian food, Quirinale eschews the rustic in favour of contemporary elegance, offering delicately presented dishes created with a focus on simplicity, quality of ingredients and just a touch of imagination. Of note is Quirinale’s cheese selection – the perfect ending to the perfect meal.

Superb food, absolutely delicious. Such a pity this restaurant has had to close permanently because of COVID restrictions and subsequent loss of business. It will be deeply missed by the loyal clientele.

Amazing restaurant in Westminster area, incredible service and food is outstanding. The veal Milanese was the best I've had outside of Italy and the ox cheek was sublime. Highly recommended!!

Outstanding restaurant. Perfect for quiet conversation over lunch. The set menu was exceptional value for money. My only criticism would be the relative paucity of vegetarian choices, but I enjoyed what was on the menu the day I dined.

I love Quirinale - one of my favourites. Will always go there when I can. I love it being so quiet! Would you invest in sound suppression? Carpet?

Easily the best restaurant in Westminster. Wonderful food which is difficult to find anywhere else, certainly not generic Italian. It has the feel of a family run Italian restaurant with the excellent service that comes with.

A cosy basement restaurant with authentic Italian cuisine, well presented and friendly service. I had a wonderful starter with scallops and fennel, and well cooked fish for main course. Only criticism was my husband’s slow cooked belly pork which was a bit tough. Dessert was beautiful, and a good selection of wines on the menu.

We visited after a lecture nearby. Very attentive staff, old-school style service. The menu is very different from the usual Italian fare, and every dish we had delivered.

Always quick, courteous, calm. Lovely food. Unobtrusive service. Sensible prices. Plenty of between the tables. The perfect venue for a business lunch and usually some political “celebs” to spot as well.

I have been visiting this restaurant for a number of years and it is always excellent. It is one of the best restaurants in Westminster, serving beautifully simple (simply beautiful) Italian food, with always fresh and wonderful ingredients.

Excellent service and good Italian food. It was quiet when we went in the early evening and because the table aren’t too close together and they have tablecloths, the acoustics are good. So you can chat nicely to your companions. The food here is very good, and if you choose from the set menu, it’s incredibly good value. We were really well looked after and stayed on chatting at our table long after finishing our meal.

Good food and service but let down badly by having to send back both the first and second course because the food was barely warm. Once can be overlooked but twice in a meal is slapdash.

We had a lovely anniversary dinner. The space is bright and cosy and the fact that there is no noisy music gives it an extra nice ambiance. The food was delicious, scallops, duck and hare orecchiette. We also enjoyed a bottle of a lovely red wine. The service was attentive, yet not intrusive. We have been to this restaurant in the past and we will definitely return. Thank you for a good experience.

I asked my PA to book a business lunch for last Wednesday in the Westminster / St James area and Quirinale didn't disappoint. Despite being on a basement level it was surprisingly light and airy. Very attentive staff, amazing food and good value for money. I will definitely be back if dining in the area.
