As you hop off the underground at Hendon Central Station, stroll a few paces and then through the doors of Amaretto Ristorante at Central Circus. This London restaurant knows the drill when it comes to humble yet damn good Italian cuisine, and with a few branches across the city, that’s a sure sign of quality. The kitchen is headed by owner of the restaurant, Flo, and she ensures every plate of Italian food that leaves the kitchen is way, way up to scratch. Think pasta, pizza and pesce, as well plenty of prime meats and even a satisfying early bird menu. Amaretto Ristorante in Hendon is popular, so be sure to book ahead.
