Cafe Murano is a pretty Italian restaurant in Covent Garden run by chef Angela Hartnett, of Murano and Saturday Kitchen fame. There’s a warm ambience and soft leather booths aplenty, making it a good place to dig in and eat some very good pasta, and share a bottle of wine with friends. In particular, the truffle arancini and grilled squid are excellent, and the seafood and meats are satisfying if you’re going for it. Cafe Murano is a good call for a low-key celebration, date, or when you want to treat your folks to a little London living.
