This is the place to go for a later luncheon or early dinner as the kitchen is open from noon till 11 pm. The positive thing is that the menu is not shortened during the afternoon, the full one is available and the dishes are cooked perfectly. Service is attentive, the wine list is interesting and the prices are moderate.... More

Very impressed. The service staff are some of the friendliest I've experienced in London, the food was very good, straight up Italian without trying to be too fancy, but still excellent quality and value. For under 30 pounds get a very good quality three course meal. Great wine list and sommalier helped me pick a great wine that I'd never... More

We recently had lunch having eaten a couple of times previously in the evening. It is clearly a place for business lunches, the service brisk and friendly and good portion sizes that is important to me. I had fresh pasta with crab that was pleasant if not exciting, followed by perfectly cooked calves liver with spinach that was exactly as... More

This place is well known in St James (I used in work nearby, and hasn't really changed). The service is decent and the room nice. However, food is a bit tasteless and dull - salad to start was very basic, not really dressed properly. Piece of fish as a main OK, but again, nothing notable - and not inexpensive either.

A pleasant, comfortable lunch. Terrific beef carpaccio to start, grilled chicken was excellent. Not too much, not too little. Excellent wine list, if a little unadventurous. Very much a business restaurant at lunchtimes, imagine it's somewhat more luxurious for dinner.

Ate here based on hotel recommendation and was not disappointed. Started with the mozzarella/tomatoes and vegetable soup(pea). Both had very good flavor. Entrees were the salmon and chicken which were also excellent. The servings were larger than we have been seeing in London. Service outstanding.

I last ate in Al Duca some 2+ years ago and remember enjoying it - but hadn't been back until today. I was in for a business lunch and found the staff courteous and friendly, and super efficient. The dishes were simple but delicious and prepared with high quality ingredients. Highly recommended for an intimate lunch or dinner.
