Vasco & Piero's Pavilion Restaurant
For over two decades, this family-run restaurant has been one of the best-kept secrets among the stars and media moguls. The design is intricate yet modern and and the ambiance is low-key, but it is the warm service and fabulous home cooking that brings customers back, time and again. Many of the fresh ingredients are sourced straight from the central province of Umbria, including many cured meats and truffles. Based on the philosophy of keeping dishes simple, all pasta is made on the premises and the menu is focused on bringing out the natural flavors in the dishes. Try the Grilled Polenta with Asparagus & Parmesan or the Grilled Steak of Lamb, Rosemary & Cannellini beans. Be sure to save room for one of their signature desserts, like the Panna Cotta with Fresh Strawberries.

The best value quality italian food in town
By A Yahoo! Contributor, 17/11/2005
If you like Italian (and I mean proper Italian not just pizza and pasta) then you'll love the Pavilion.
It has a lively atmosphere with excellent staff who are always on hand to pour/serve wine or offer advice on what to order.
The food is exceptional. From the roast Umbrian ham and peccorino to the Sea Bass ravioli (all pasta is home made on site) the starters are delectable although i recommend having something other than pasta first followed by a middle course of whatever pasta they recommend.
The meat is all well sourced, of top quality and cooked simply but well. My father swears by the calves liver but I love the lamb cutlets or carpaccio of Tuna. Whatever you order it is sure to be good.
The desserts are again exquisite with superb panna cotta and my favourite, a zingy pot of lemon.
Whatever the occasion, for good value (but not very cheap at about £20 a head plus wine) go to Vasco & Piero's pavilion.
