Italian
Our menu represents a fusion of modern and traditional Italian cuisine driven by a passion for quality food, using only fresh and seasonal ingredients. This unique and authentic interpretation of the Italian dishes is brought about by our head chef, Federico, a Roman on the Roman, along with sous chef Edoardo from Tuscany. Their take on regional Italian cuisine is also highlighted in our monthly wine tasting and food pairing evenings.

Our extensive wine list is lovingly sourced from small producers with a particular focus on natural, biodynamic and organic Italian wines.

A wonderful meal at Symposium - the seasonal changing menu is really varied, and we enjoyed sharing the smoked burrata and figs, melanzana and a generous portion of mussels!

The venison was fresh to the menu that day and was perfectly cooked and the poached sea bream was delicious! Great atmosphere and service too!

I am local to the area, and stumbled across this gem of a restaurant and deli when having a walk with my partner to find somewhere for dinner. I am so, so glad we found this gorgeous little place - the decor service, food and wine were all superb, and it is clear how much love and attention has gone into it all. I loved it so much I have since been back for lunch with my mother, who is now also a fan. We will be back - and sooner rather than later!

What a lovely little gem on Roman Road! The ambience is great, very welcoming and laid back. A great selection of wines. Truly authentic Italian cuisine, with Italian cooks. We tried almost the entire menu, including the burrata starter, the sweet potato salad, the bread as starters - everything was delicious! The highlight was, however, the tagliatelle with bolognese ragù: a perfectly balanced sauce, tagliatelle cooked just right (al dente!). Very pleasant wine by the glass. Service was very attentive and friendly, too. Last but not least, very reasonable prices and good portion sizes. We have been there before and will definitely come back!

Symposium is really a hidden gem in Roman Road.
The floor and kitchen staff is superb, as well as the quality and selection of their wines.
The oustanding meals prepared by the fantastic chef are the real deal: original, delicious and unforgettable!

Really good choice on the menu with well executed food and a fab choice of wine. Very good service and opportunity of wine tasting with food later in the month so we snapped up the opportunity.

Went for dinner with a friend. Started with an aperol and limoncello spritz followed by a nice Italian red wine and finally, a dessert wine. All paired with various dishes from tuna with a pistachio crust to pumpkin ravioli. Staff were friendly and cheery! All delicious and with a generous helping of parmesan! Am going to go back again and will definitely recommend to friends!

Really fantastic food, we go regularly and haven't found anything on the menu that isn't excellent. My particular favourite is the deer ragu.
