Murano

Murano first opened its doors 10 years ago, and was awarded a Michelin star just four months later. With a delectable menu of modern Italian dishes that use seasonal ingredients and an impressive wine list it's no surprise that Murano is considered one of Mayfair 's best restaurants, and it's cosy, laid back atmosphere is perfect for an intimate dinner for two.

Sartoria

The only restaurant on Saville Row, Sartoria is perfect for a meal for two, starting at the beautiful Libare Bar for an aperitif and then moving to the luxuriously decorated dining room. Prefer to dine al fresco? There's a delightful heated terrace area where you can watch the world go by while you dine. Its classic menu with a contemporary twist also features several dishes to share between two, and with a decently sized wine list you will be spoilt for choice.

Sergios

If you want a candlelit dinner, then Sergio's is your place. The menu is rustic Italian fare, boasting a mouth-watering selection of meats, pastas and pizzas all bursting with flavour, and the staff will treat you like royalty. There's also a wine list featuring wines from several different regions, and a selection of Grappas. A short distance from Oxford Circus, this little piece of Italy in Fitzrovia will almost have you thinking you're dining in Rome!

Polpetto

Berwick Street proudly houses this fantastic eatery, which has a small but perfectly formed Venetian inspired menu of Italian classics and a cocktail list you will love. With just 60 seats Polpetto is intimate and just perfect for a romantic meal, with mood lighting and a delightfully cosy décor that will make you feel like you're a world away from the bustling Soho streets.

Bocca di Lupo

A short stroll from Piccadilly Circus, Bocca di Lupo serves honest cuisine in the most glamorous of surroundings. Dishes from each region in Italy fill the menu, which is changed weekly to make the best of seasonal produce, and the wine list is mind blowing, with a selection of wines from each region. The dining room is dominated by a breath-taking chandelier and this sets the scene for a luxurious and romantic dining experience.

Wherever you decide to dine, you will find fresh produce, delicious dishes and an array of wines to make your evening one to remember.
