Italian at the Emperor – Aldgate

LardButty’s fave all-weather pub-restaurant in the City 2014

No matter the weather, it’s always the season for fine stone-baked pizza, a glass of cold dry white wine and a friendly face at The Emperor pub, Aldgate.

Come and share in some of LardButty’s visits here throughout 2014:

It’s not just the food that’s great here, the service is genuinely hospitable too. It’s like stepping out of the City and into a little corner of Italy.
