Chatting with Joaquim and his son Paulo, you are immediately struck by the sense of history at this traditional Italian restaurant.

There has been a Caprini’s restaurant in London for over six decades but in 1961, Joaquim took over the running of the business from the Caprini family and has been the proprietor ever since.

The fish dishes are to die for but their house speciality, and our favourite too, is the steak.

Paolo runs the restaurant day-to-day and it’s easy to see why Hollywood stars and politicians from over the river come to eat here whenever they can.

Don’t be put off by the A-list clientele though. This is a restaurant that prides itself on reasonably priced, delicious and authentic Italian dishes that you don’t get elsewhere.

Our little known fact about Caprini’s:
Head here on a Monday or Tuesday night or anytime at the weekend for their set menu, which features an absolutely magnificent pepper steak.
