Bored with your lunch options? Spianata & Co - the famed Roman sandwich shop has just opened in Mayfair. Every morning, starting from scratch, they gently knead, fold and roll the dough for the bread until the texture has reached perfection. Only then do they bake it and fill it with the finest Italian ingredients. Beats the soggy sarnie you ate yesterday.
