Tartufo is the recently opened restaurant at No. 11 Cadogan Gardens that combines luxury and comfort in a delightful setting. Located in the downstairs of the hotel, Tartufo makes for the perfect place to enjoy lunch in peace and quiet without feeling shut away. The dining area consists of two connected rooms with vintage prints lining the walls.
Along with Lauren from Team DC, I recently had the pleasure of trying the newly launched lunch menu. We were greeted by very friendly staff and well looked after throughout our meal. After settling in to the dining room that is reminiscent of an elegant and cosy living room, we were served our aperitifs. The comfortable seats also make it that much easier to feel at home and relaxed whilst indulging in some beautifully presented and very tasty dishes.
Chef Manuel Oliveri is responsible for the creation of the exciting menu and during our lunch we were able to try the Summer Heritage Tomatoes, Chilled Watermelon & Red Pepper Soup; the Spelt, Confit Tomatoes & Basil, Purple Artichoke and Parmesan; Large Swiss Chard & Summer Truffle Ravioli with Aged Parmesan Velouté, Red Chard Leaves & Truffle Dressing and finally, the Lightly Poached Peaches, Refreshed with Prosecco and served with a Peach Sorbet.
Each dish didn’t last long on the table and were equally as delicious as the one that came before it. The menu includes other dishes such as Warm Peach & Grilled Scallops, Crunchy Pork Belly, Parsley & Garlic Marinated Cut of Atlantic and a Selection of Homemade Seasonal Sorbet making it a perfect menu for vegetarians and carnivores alike.
Included in the total price of the À la carte menu are three courses, petit fours and coffee to finish the meal, and wine specially selected by the sommelier to accompany each of the dishes throughout the lunch. Whether dining with a friend or meeting for a business lunch, Tartufo has a great atmosphere and even greater food which is suitable for all.
