Salieri Theatre Restaurant London Reviews
Wonderful Mediterranean Cuisine Jun 19, 2010
I met a friend of mine in Covent Garden. We were going to see a comedy at the Novello Theatre at Aldwych, but we were both hungry and needed to find somewhere to have dinner first. We walked from Covent Garden down to Strand and passed Salieri Theatre Restaurant. The place looked interesting with its spectacular array of enormous pot plants outside and a tempting menu, so we went inside.
Salieri is a restaurant which serves Mediterranean cuisine at very reasonable prices, starters from £3,50 - £9,50, mains from £8,50 - £29,50 (pasta, vegetables, fish, chicken, pork, steak, duck and lobster) and desserts from £3,95 - £5,25. They also offer a Theatre Dinner menu, 2 or 3 courses for £14,95/£16,95. They offer a wide range of both red and white wine as well as Champagne and sparkling wine.
We went for the special set menu, a 2 course meal for £10,95. You could choose between 3 different starters and 3 different main courses. Sylvia chose Cozze alla Marinara (mussels cooked in white wine, olive oil, garlic & sliced sharlotts) and Risotto Asparago (risotto cooked with asparagus, parmesan shavings with a touch of olive oil & white wine) and I chose soup of the day, which was a mushroom soup with grounded pepper, and Ravioli alla Aragosta (ravioli filled with smoked salmon served with crayfish in a creamy dill herb Champagne sauce). We were both very happy with our meals. It was very good value for money.
The interior had a nice atmosphere and was decorated with puppets, mirrors, masks, theatrical memorabilia and photographs. I was also very impressed by the friendly, helpful and dedicated staff. Many of the restaurants around the theatre district do not have very good service. I guess they don´t care if you come back or not. There will always be someone else who will eat there.
I can warmly recommend Salieri Theatre Restaurant. It is a perfect place to eat both before and after a show.
Opening hours: Daily 12:00 - 24:00
