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.

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.

Booked this to take my mum to whilst in London. The food was exceptional and a lovely wine to go with it. The service was good although could have been a little more attentive, but were exceptionally friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at the restaurant and had no idea it had been operating for 17 years. The staff were welcoming a, friendly and helpful. The tables comfortable and the food delicious and well presented. We were disappointed by the slow service of food. We had to rush off to catch trains, as soon as we were finished and were later than we hoped. The noise level was significant and made it difficult for one of our party to hear the conversations clearly, which was a shame.

It was excellent.
Probably the best food (and very good service) that I have had in London - for a very long time.
Highly Recommended

I met a friend I haven't seen for several years. The quiet atmosphere, good food and good service was just what we wanted. A minor issue with the bill was sorted quickly and with curtesy. Will be very happy to go again.

Food and service is exceptionally good. I chose this restaurant also because it is usually very quiet but on the night we were there there was a group of about 25 so very noisy unfortunately.

Waited 25 minutes before anyone would take our order - despite asking twice. Asked for bread - none arrived. I have dined here many times and service was particularly poor this time. But the food is pretty good.

This was our first visit to this restaurant but it will not be our last.
We needed to eat in this area as we were attending an afternoon function nearby.
We were time restricted so the two course lunch suited with some wine followed by coffee.
The whole experience was divine.
The restaurant even though it's in a basement has great light and bucket loads of ambience.
We will return to sample the full menu.
Lunch was one of the major highlights of a special day in London.

The menu was extremely limited and the quality of the food served was poor. The venu was empty (which was of little surprise given the poor choice on the menu and the blandness of the meal). The service was fairly good and the waiting staff polite.

I would certainly not recommend this establishment to anyone nor would I return in the future.

We very much enjoyed our dinner - thank you. The food was excellent, as was the service. There were few people in the restaurant when we visited (which we gather is unusual) but the ambience was still very pleasant. We'll be pleased to return on another occasion, and to recommend the restaurant to friends and colleagues.

I asked for a corner table and was given one. My carpaccio arrived laced with balsamico, i complained and they changed it gracefully and promptly. Their tagliatelle al ragu di fagiano was totally delicious. Good choice of wines, smily attentive service, a great easy dinner after a talk nearby. Thank you Quirinale.

Very conveniently situated for a business lunch. Excellent choice in fixed price and a la carte menus, with some very attractive specials explained to us by our waiter. Personal attention from the chef was greatly appreciated, with all dishes being presented attractively but with any pretentiousness or excess. Delicious food throughout, with every dish a hit. Our Sicilian white wine was interesting, good value and a fitting accompaniment to our three courses. Highly recommended.
