The vegetarian options are limited. Had pizza which had bade filled with oil. Pizza hut serves better pizza than what I had here. It was expensive and not worth the money..

If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just

I believe they are open 8-4 on Sundays. It is a nice relatively unassuming restaurant with friendly staff and good food near Buckingham Palace. Enjoy.
is this restaurant pet friendly?

It is a small Italian cafe, so I rather doubt it. Not positive.....you would need to order wheat free items in that case. They have other things on the menu.
