Locale County Hall is a spacious and relaxed restaurant just off the South Bank. The main dining area envelopes an open kitchen, creating a buzzy vibe amongst diners in the surrounding leather booths. Traditional Italian dishes fill the menu, with signature creations including roasted lamb shank with mashed potatoes, while the bar offers a range of stuzzichini to snack upon. An outdoor terrace overlooks the County Hall in the summer months.

Good Italian near the London Eye

Pretty good Italian offerings. It's in a touristy area, so prices are a bit higher. My daughters really enjoyed their kids pizza and spaghetti and meatballs and my chicken parmigiana was excellent. Good selection of Italian beer and wine in a nice atmosphere.

Our big party was looked after beautifully when we came for lunch. We were made to feel extremely welcome, and were very appreciative of all the care and attention of our waiter including crayons pre-layed out on the table. We had a really great meal, and very much enjoyed the surroundings.

I had taken my 16-year old granddaughter to the London Aquarium and wanted to treat her further to a really good meal, finding this place on Tripadvisor. I cannot understand some of the negative comments which have been made - perhaps by those who sought and were refused a discount! My Scaloppine di Vitello was excellent and her Traditional Lasagne...

Excellent choice in trying this place out. Booked table for 8 people which reduced last minute to 6, which was no issue to them. Had a few drinks before we started, good choices to have along with some great spirits. Meals varied from squid starters, mussels to pasta with squid, mussels and grilled king prawn. Excellent service, not a bad... More

We found the restaurant by chance and we ate well. The waiters were very polite and we didn't have to wait long to eat. Unfortunately the air conditioning was on and the place was rather cold (we had to eat with our jackets on) and when I asked if they could turn off the air conditioning they said it wasn't... More

Went here today for lunch with my girlfriend and my two sons and as it was quite early the place was fairly quiet. We ordered drinks, starters and mains and the drinks came reasonably quickly. The starters, garlic pizza and bruschetta, were nice but the garlic pizza was very very garlicky! So far, so good. When the mains came, four... More

Staying in Southbank

Neighborhood Profile
Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.
