We enjoyed a very pleasant business lunch at Civico 1845. The portions are very generous. I thoroughly enjoyed the sea bass with roasted potatoes.

This review will be somewhat different and more about how to dine here. Admittedly I am unable to tell you how authentic it is as I've no real Italian restaurants to compare it to. (unless you count London where no English was spoken) If you...More

We waited about 20 minutes and sat at the bar (we love to sit at a bar!). We split a Caesar salad and each ordered the Pappardelle Brasato. OMG! It was amazing. The bartender was great. It was one of our best meals!
