"Savini at Criterion
Savini at Criterion is not just a restaurant but a representation of 150 years of Italian and English history. Dating back to 1867, Savini is Milan's most famous restaurant, where Verdi, Puccini, Callas and Sinatra all came to dine. Some 150 years later this iconic brand opened in the historic Criterion Restaurant bringing a unique combination of history, food, hospitality to Piccadilly Circus. This elegant Grade II-listed venue which opened in 1873 is one of the world’s top 10 restaurants. The Criterion has played host to Royalty, Winston Churchill, the women’s suffrage movement and stars from the stage and screen. In 1881 the restaurant bar also inspired the meeting place for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson and been the back drop to TV films such as Downton Abbey.
Against a backdrop of timeless opulence designed by Royal Albert Hall architect Thomas Verity in 1873, this neo-Byzantine dining room and bar, with its fabulous gold ceiling and marble columns, now presents guests with a menu of authentic Italian dishes prepared with the finest seasonal ingredients.
