"Housed within a stunning building on London’s iconic Strand, bistro-style Salieri – Covent Garden evokes a nostalgic ambience. The flamboyant interior is adorned with vintage French murals and cosy seating.
Serving a selection of European delicacies in the heart of London, the Salieri menu presents hearty favourites, like mixed seafood tagliatelle in a creamy marinara sauce, succulent lobster thermidor and chicken Milanese.
From puppets to authentic photographs, the quaint dining room at Salieri Covent Garden is filled with theatrical memorabilia, where diners can unwind with a crisp, refreshing chablis, or an aromatic cabernet sauvignon. A hearty meal at Salieri restaurant can be perfectly concluded with a rich white chocolate parfait, or a tangy exotic fruit salad.
