This place is more about glamour than the food!
Where is it?
A short walk from St James or Bond Street underground stations on Mayfair’s Davies Street, Cipriani is easily found thanks to its glamorous black signage and the ever-present paparazzi camping outside.
What's it like?
Once inside, you’ll be confronted with an interior that was built in Hong Kong and shipped to London piece by piece, with low compact tables and small chairs, gleaming Murano chandelier and a lacquer wooden bar. It’s really not very suitable for tall people, and the small cutlery, tiny wine glasses and clunky patterned crockery are all very old fashioned and slightly odd in this setting. However, your neighbouring diners could be Naomi Campbell, Simon Cowell, Stella McCartney or any number of WAGs or reality TV stars who think coming here elevates them to A-list status. The businessmen that flock here during the day peter out at night to leave room for the glitterati, so be sure to book early and bear in mind that turning over 400 covers a night means that they’ll be eager to move you on from your table once you’ve finished eating. Indeed, the white jacketed waiting staff can border on aggressive with their reminders of how busy and successful they are! Foodwise, Cipriani serves a traditional Italian menu and has a proud heritage as part of the Harry’s Bar Venice family, the birthplace of beef carpaccio and peach bellinis.
Why does Johnny Ikon love it?
Despite serving far from the best Italian food in the Capital, Cipriani offers dining with real glamour. Where else can you guarantee dining with the likes of Simon Cowell and the Beckhams?!
Cool, contemporary, Camden's finest...
Synonymous with British class
Debauchery and indulgence in a very sexy venue!
Exclusivity, fine cocktails and just a dash of Manhattan arrogance
