Remember the days before restaurant chains?
Friendly, family service?
Freshly made dishes?
Clarence Restaurant was born out of a desire to bring friends and family together around the table. The owners, Reza and his wife Monica created an Italian restaurant in Windsor that reminded them of warm, gregarious Italian hospitality. You can always expect a gracious smiles and genuine Italian hospitality at our restaurant. Our staff always greets you at our doors and make you feel part of the family while you are dining with us.
They started running their own restaurant since 1996, when they opened Caffe La Fiamma inn Hampton Court. That was followed by the opening of a small chain of Mexican restaurants; El Torito. However, as Monica was aware of her husband’s passion for Italian food and she very much missed her Mamma’s cooking from Rome, she finally persuaded him to open Casa Nostra restaurant in Wimbledon, followed by the Square Olive restaurant in Hampton Court in recent years.
Our Mission: Quality. Passion. Pride.
Quality means freshness. Italy’s diverse cooking is the heart and soul of our restaurant. We incorporate the best and freshest seasonal produce to deliver pure classic Italian flavours. Our experienced team of chefs prepare all of the dishes in our restaurants daily from scratch. Our food is made and served by a team of people who love cooking it as well as eating it and chatting about it endlessly.
Passion is people. People who love what they do and take your enjoyment personally. Passion is what to expect from the people who take your order, the people who craft your meal (and peek out from the kitchen to see your delight!). Everyone you meet here is happy you’ve come, and they’re genuinely dedicated to having you visit with us frequently.
Pride makes us a family. This is our home. You are our guest. And we will attend to your dining experience with a degree of care and attention to detail unrivalled elsewhere. A deep desire to serve others is the secret to success of a gracious host. And its why, at Clarence, we want you to always leave with a smile.
