REVIEW: Ritorno









An elegant, upmarket aperitif lounge bar on the fashionable Kings Road.



The Vibes: 

We love the stylish 80-cover lounge bar at Ritorno which is the perfect spot to enjoy your favourite cicchetti (Italian Style Small Plates). The attention to detail interior echoes the very best Italian produce on the menu, all freshly made in store.


What we Ate:  



Ritorno offers a wide selection of traditional Italian fare with modern twists that will transport you to the sophisticated streets of Milan.

We were very impressed by the quality of each cicchetti served by our super attentive servicer, so these are our top picks:



Fresh grilled octopus with juicy Sicilian ratatouille, garnished with a plentiful drizzle of balsamic vinegar reduction.


Melt in the mouth Burrata, with white wine vinegar marinated green courgette purée, served on a bed of mixed tomatoes and courgettes.

Loosen your belt and try the Classic aubergine Parmigiana wrapped in homemade bread crust. A totally scrumptious dish you must try!



What We Drank: 



We definitely think Ritorno’s cocktails reign supreme, with each tipple taking Italian ingredients whenever possible. Try Lady Giulia, made with Sabatini gin, raspberry shrub, green tea and mint air twist.

Do not leave without trying the Italian champs.


We Recommend:  


“Fassona” beef carpaccio, garnished with 30-months Parmigiano Reggiano cream & basil oil. Beef carpaccio doesn’t come much better than this.




Our Thoughts:


Ritorno oozes style and sophistication with all the trimmings of a Sloane square hot spot. Ritorno also features a stylish 12-capacity private dining space, perfect for intimate gatherings, celebrations and tasting experiences.
