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.

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.

The food and service is superb ! The three course dinner is well prepared and quality is top class . We were so happy to find the restaurant in Westminster. The owner chef deserves high rating .

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.

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.

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.
