D&D's Fiume summer terrace in battersea

Fiume is designed by Macaulay Sinclair, who was also behind the look and feel of Hawksmoor, Dishoom, and Pitt Cue. Natural materials such as oak, stone and marble create a relaxed yet stylish setting, with injections of colour coming from bright upholstery.

Natural light illuminates the restaurant as it pours in through Fiume’s glass façade, while an open kitchen and black granite bar for counter dining create a convivial space for eating, drinking and general merriment.When it’s warm enough to go outside, diners can take in Thames views from our piazza, decked out with terracotta pots filled with aromatic lavender as well as lemon and olive trees.

Francesco’s love for the vibrant, colourful food of the Amalfi coast is showcased through a menu of changing dishes with a focus on grilled seafood and fresh pasta, handmade daily. There’s cicchetti and antipasti that makes the most of both British produce and Italian ingredients, such as fritto misto. Next, there’s pinsa, a thin Roman-style pizza with toppings such as wild mushroom and truffle. For primi, there’s a choice of hand-rolled pastas drawing on  southern Italy’s strong seafood traditions, such as Amalfi lemon taglioni; and spaghetti chitarra, blue lobster. There are new takes on Italian favourites for dessert, such as panna cotta, citrus and blood orange; and an ever-changing line-up of fresh ice cream and sorbets.
