Avista exudes charm and glamour, overlooking the elegant Grosvenor Square in the heart of Mayfair. With its own dedicated entrance, Avista nestles alongside the Millennium Hotel London Mayfair. The menu showcases an inspiring and sophisticated selection of northern Italian classics, distinguished by chef Michele Granziera's ingenious touches. Such sumptuous dishes include pan-fried Orkney scallops with artichoke purée and pomegranate; Parmigiana (oven-baked aubergine with tomato, mozzarella and Parmesan); and slow-cooked trio of duck with cucumber and spring onions. Starters are priced from £8.50 and mains from £10.50; even better value is the set lunch menu, which offers two courses for £19, three for £26 or four for £30. The restaurant seats 70 in opulent surroundings, while the chef's table seats 18. Alternatively, enjoy the comfort of the private room, which holds up to 12 people. All areas are perfect for business gatherings and special events. Meanwhile, Avista Bar boasts a tantalising selection of cocktails as well as an excellent variety of wines and Champagnes. Try the seductive Lady Mayfair - raspberries and vodka muddled together with cranberry and lemon juice - or sip a chilled glass of prosecco whilst relaxing in the glamorous atmosphere. Avista is fast becoming known as one of the best Italian restaurants in Mayfair and is a favourite haunt for celebrities. You are assured a very warm welcome and a wonderful dining experience at Avista, often described as 'a little piece of Italy in Grosvenor Square'.
