(we have always eaten half our food before remembering to take a photo)
It is always last minute that we call the River Cafe, usually we are disappointed, they have no room for us, but when we do get a table, the anticipation is palpable.
There is actually very little to be said about this establishment founded by Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray other than it is the best. We love Italian food and unless you can suggest somewhere else then, for now, it is our restaurant of choice.
The ingredients are just simply exquisitely prepared from the very best produce, the menu seems to change so often I have never seen the same menu twice, portions can be USA style so beware of over ordering, actually I will retract that warning, do order too much, then don't eat for a week...So take it from me if and I mean 'if' you get a table, get there early and eat very slowly I mean it really slowly savour it, ask for a wine recommendation and just sit back, chat, people watch and savour some masterfully served food.
