Italian
Aromi. The name reveals our deep connection to Italy’s food culture, one based on aromatics (herbs), with each region emphasising different herbs to enrich their local dishes.

Our farm-to-table menu is responsive not just to seasonality, but to the ‘best-of-market’ offers from our producers, providores and growers. They arrive daily with their best cheeses, prime game, seafood and market produce.

From Aromi’s own house-made bread and pasta, to the wood-smoked fish and meats in the kitchen, the love of quality produce and heritage is embodied in every taste.

Aromi is a most enjoyable restaurant. The maitre d' and team are pleasant, helpful and good fun. The menu is inventive and encourages one to come back for more. I needed a little help with the Italian wine list to suit a wide range of menu choices within my group, and received excellent guidance. The atmosphere is lively but one is still able to enjoy dinner conversation. We will visit again.

Food didn't seem to be up to normal standards.
Not sure if it was just us but we found each dish a little to salty.

Aromi is our go to local for dinner with friends and special occasions. The food is fine dining but the environment relaxed. Juan’s front of house team is professional, friendly and helpful, fabulous attention to detail. Can’t go past the tartare, duck and truffle gnocchi, and all the desserts!

Went in just before lockdown 3.0
We couldn’t make up our minds and went for the degustation menu - 10 amazing courses. Sitting up at the bar watching the action marking cocktails and right through into the kitchen, great atmosphere, great food and great company. Love this place

Great little Italian eatery. Magic plates of starters, zucchini flowers & oysters a speciality. Mains were a mix of pasta dishes with duck & rabbit. Both sensational. Nice cocktail list & a good wine list.

Ask for house specialties You won’t be disappointed! We couldn’t fault any of the dishes. All exceptional. Only shortfall was a couple of the cocktail presentations. Visually bland, but still tasted good.

We booked a table for 3 and were shown to a bar overlooking the street. It was not very comfortable and made conversation difficult. The waiter then offered us a table outside which was much nicer on a sunny afternoon. We were even offered sunscreen which was very considerate. Our meals were delicious. I had the softest lightest gnocchi I have ever eaten (and I've been to Italy). My friends had tagliolini with squid ink and crab, and the spinach & ricotta pasta. We then enjoyed the panna cotta and exquisite salted caramel Gradi gelato, followed by excellent coffee. All the waiters were friendly and helpful and we even had a chat with the owner & shared stories of travelling to the South of France. A very enjoyable experience.

Attention to detail in this small restaurant is fantastic. I had a celebratory lunch with my two sons and I’m so glad we chose Aromi.
Food was delicious and staff tentative.
Wine choice good as well.
I had the duck and mushroom gnocchi. Delicate flavours light fresh gnocchi and superb sauce with a hint of truffle. We will definitely be visiting again.
