Named after the southern Italian region of Lazio, Latium is owned by Chef-Patron Maurizio Morelli, along with London restaurateur, Claudio Pulze. The restaurant is proud to celebrate its 10 anniversary in 2013; having opened to great critical acclaim in 2003, it quickly gained a loyal clientele and reputation as one of London’s finest independent traditional Italian restaurants.
While the menu covers most regions of Italy, there is a particular emphasis on the cuisine of Lazio. Maurizio is committed to sourcing ingredients from small, artisan producers, with many specially imported from his hometown of Latina. In true Italian style, he insists on preparing and making all his bread and pasta fresh each day, complemented only by the very best in seasonal British produce.
Professional but informal and welcoming service is crucial to the success of Latium. Restaurant Manager Alex Trumci manages the front-of-house team with a friendly, personal style, and brings a wealth of knowledge about Italian food and wine to the customer experience.
