Say ciao to Union Street Café, an urban Italian ristorante by Gordon Ramsay located in Southwark, that’s inspired by the casual glamour and laid-back luxe of Italy. Northern Italy, to be precise, with born-and-bred Italian head chef Davide Degiovanni crafting a menu that’s influenced by authentic recipes and the myriad of Michelin-starred restaurants he’s worked for. For Union Street Café, that means seasonal, daily-changing dishes packed with as much flavour as they are flair - get a taste of Italian artisan foods in the artsy Bankside area.
