The one New Year's we spent in London in the last twelve to fifteen years we went to Tentazioni
. No music during the dinner as I recall, but at midnight everyone had a free glass of Prosecco and some Italian themed music came over the speakers. A few hardy souls slow danced, most sat back and enjoyed a brandy and cigar, (pre no-smoking of course). An enjoyable evening but not cheap at circa £85 a pop, and this was probably seven or more years back. We may be looking for something closer to home this year again, as with the sinking pound, suddenly Athens, Rome, Berlin or New York are not the cheap chav free options that they were.
