Il Boteglio RestaurantTucked away between Barbican and Farringdon stations in east London, Il Boteglio is a bit of a Smithfield institution. The team behind Il Boteglio have been feeding hungry journalists and bankers for almost thirty years. This homely Italian restaurant stands out along Long Lane for its vibrant blue shopfront and is always busy at lunchtime with a jovial crowd. Inside, the interior is decorated with Chianti bottles, wine barrels and potted palms and the rustic Italian food is just as charming. With its range of pizza, pasta, salads, ristotto and seafood - Il Boteglio caters for all palates at affordable prices, and regulars love the friendly, down-to-earth service.
