Belgravia’s loss is our gain

The phrase ‘hidden gem’ is over used but what else do you call an Italian restaurant which is run by a chef – patron who has cooked for some of the finest restaurants in London and has been awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand for his own restaurant – in our neighbourhood?

Andy Needham opened L’Amorosa at 278 King St, Hammersmith four years ago, setting up home in west London with his wife Lynne and two young children. Prior to that he had been top chef at Zafferano in Belgravia during 12 years when it not only held a Michelin star but was named by Tatler as the most consistently excellent restaurant of the decade.

In celebration of L’Amorosa’s Michelin success Andy is offering Chiswick Calendar Club Card members 25% off all bookings from 5-7pm Tuesday to Saturday or for lunch Wednesday to Saturday. Scroll down for booking details but be aware you may have to book well ahead to get a table.

Food writer Emily Manson has interviewed the consistently excellent chef for The Chiswick Calendar. Apparently it was a Yorkshire pudding which caught him his big break. Read more here.
