Giovanni Rana's "Pasti ficio & Cucina" in London, embodies two strong Italian culinary concepts: the "Pasti ficio" or "pasta-making" area, where fresh pasta is made from scratch using selected quality ingredients and the "Cucina" (kitchen), where the pasta and other creative dishes are prepared to allow guests to truly enjoy the Italian dining experience. From start to finish. Then you would like to go bespoke? You can decide the menu, you can book the restaurant as a whole or in part. Would you like your party to be "waitered" or do you prefer a buffet? It's your choice. And a wonderful terrace offer an outside for the warmly spring and summer days. The recipe for success? 3 simple rules: sourcing the best and freshest ingredients available, blending them together with love, while always being innovative - Rana constantly experiment with new ideas and flavors.

Giovanni Rana was quite uninspiring and somewhere that actually specialises in pasta we were quite disappointed that one of the pasta dishes was not even cooked properly.
The restaurant seems to cater more for the offices nearby located in a business quarter with other restaurants in the complex.Most of the diners were quite smartly dress which created a different, more formal sort of...more
A pleasant surprise for what looks like quite a sterile area of London and a relatively faceless building (although is very new and swanky).
I thought this would be the usual business lunch place that gets you in and out as quickly as possible and with as little attention to detail as possible...I WAS WRONG. There, I said it, note this day, I said I was wrong.
A bit of a confused welcome but...more
