Tucked away in leafy Belsize Village, Artigiano has not only become a favourite among the affluent locals, but it’s high on the list of discreet party venues for celebrities, many of whom regularly dine there. Modern Italian cuisine, welcoming service and a thoroughly contemporary design all contribute to the ongoing success and appeal of Artigiano. A glass roof at the rear allows light to pour in and the glass frontage folds away to open the restaurant up, creating perfect al fresco moments at the first sight of sunshine.
Apart from great reviews and having a reputation for serving up some of London’s finest modern Italian cuisine, with many of the stars treating it as their local, it is now enjoying fame for the Oscar it proudly displays. Donated by one of their regular
customers, Peter Biziou who won the Oscar for Best Cinematography for the huge blockbuster, Mississippi Burning, it is now admired by people from all over the country.
