Alloro Restaurant Review

: Alloro continues to be as popular as ever with its smart, local Mayfair crowd of diners, predominantly business people at lunchtime. It’s a pleasant, comfortable restaurant with wooden parquet floors and leather seats. In this setting, the fireworks are provided by the cooking, from starters of thin slices of roast suckling pig with mixed salad leaves, or roast veal with Granny Smith apple and tonnato sauce. Follow with good homemade pastas and mains that might include char-grilled tuna steak with salad, or pan-fried cod fillet with Jerusalem artichokes and paprika. If you have any room left, try the classic tiramisu or go healthy (relatively) with fresh pineapple with raspberry foam and tart lemon sorbet. Service is professional and the wine list is a lesson in top Italians --- though with a top price list attached. If you are here for the truffle season from October to mid-December, go for the feast based around white truffles. Set 2-course lunch £29.50, 3 courses £35; set 2-course dinner £35, 3 courses £39, 4 courses £46.
