More about Amarcord, London

Amarcord Italian Restaurant like to think that they offer more than just the standard red sauce and checkerboard tablecloth establishment. While they pride themselves on their family-friendly atmosphere and exceptional service, they also boast a menu that goes far further than the usual fare, offering a fine dining take on the traditional Italian canon. Come along to Southampton Row in Holborn to try some of their house signatures – we’d recommend the homemade pate or the pan-fried cod in capers and garlic – as well as their extensive repertoire of pizzas and pasta.

Amarcord are well versed in the classics of the genre, and use them as the jumping off point to greater things. Their pastas take in long time favourites such as penne all’arrabbiata and spaghetti bolognese, but also include sophisticated options such as crespolini, stuffed with ricotta and spinach. The mains, too, are suitably stylish: try the charcoal grilled sea bass with lemon, butter and white wine or the calves liver in sage and onion. Whatever you do, it is worth remembering that Holborn is a busy part of London and it always pays to book ahead, so go online and reserve your table today before making the move to Amarcord on Southampton Row.

Amarcord felt welcoming not least because there was spotless table linen and a smiling waitress who showed us to a table in the window, which we found very acceptable.

Very low key family run restaurant. Something was unacceptable on meno, could not have a cocktail and card machine wasn't working BUT the food we had seafood risotto and seafood spaghetti was absolutely amazing. The meals were so so freshly cooked and tasty. For this reason we would definitely go back if we near Holborn again and we would definitely recommend. Very good value for money.
