Restaurant description

Refettorio has a magnificent location within Crowne Plaza London - The City hotel, adjacent to Blackfriars train station. Refettorio is metres from the River Thames and in the centre of Europe’s most vibrant financial and business district, whilst the bright lights of the West End just minutes away.

Let our Head Chef, Alessandro Bay, tantalise you with his menu inspired by Michelin-starred chef Giorgio Locatelli with traditional and flavoursome food made from mouth watering fresh produce. From the selection of Italian cured meats and cheeses to the Mousse esotica (passion fruit mousse, almond biscuits and spicy baby pineapple).

We provide a selection of over 100 Italian wines along with a top selection of cocktails and beverages to suit your taste as well as your budget. For wine lovers, the list at Refettorio, personally selected by our very own Sommelier, Antonio Nunzet, is an Aladdin’s cave of handpicked gems. It is an astute list with no allegiances to particular brands, just the best examples and the best vintages within their price range.

Our talented team will show you the superb service we can offer you and your colleagues. Whatever your event, be it a large function, lunch or dinner, we will be able to exceed your needs and requirements to make your dining experience a memorable one. A unique design, flexibility and versatility is synonymous of Refettorio, coupled with our dedicated and experienced team, your event options are boundless.

The main dining room features a long refectory-style table as well as booths along the side of the restaurant. There is a more private dining area, ‘Il Salone’, beyond. The look is contemporary, clean and smart. Refettorio’s interiors speak of comfort, design, elegance and a certain eccentricity of spirit.

Refettorio has found the right mixture of elegance and ambience, with friendly staff in a great dining layout, which together compliment the refined nature of Alessandro’s food.

Executive chef experience and qualifications

Alessandro Bay, Head Chef at Refettorio

With a love for food from an early age Alessandro Bay is passionate about his creative art. Alessandro was born in Genova and has worked and gained valuable experience in kitchens throughout Europe starting in his native Italy, moving on to Belgium and finally coming to London in 2000. From May 2003, after experiencing many different cuisines around the world, Alessandro’s journey continued, his passion for food led him to the Michelin starred Locanda Locatelli.

At Locanda Locatelli, under the leadership of Giorgio Locatelli, Alessandro’s knowledge of Italian food and his skills in the kitchen developed even further and contributed to the restaurant’s success. Highly influenced by Giorgio’s emphasis on best quality fresh produce and uncomplicated style Alessandro was recently appointed Head Chef of Refettorio at Crowne Plaza London – The City.

Alessandro’s delicious traditional Italian dishes are already proving a firm favourite in the heart of the city.
