West Malling, UK

A glass-roofed corner of Italy in historic West Malling, Amano takes its name from the Italian for ‘handmade’, and that embodies its ethos perfectly. Quality ingredients, many sourced from local artisans and others flown in from the motherland, are served with pizzazz in dishes that look as good as they taste. Saffron risotto, springy spaghetti vongole and superb charcuterie are expertly paired with an all-Italian wine list. Those planning an overnighter will be pleased to hear that the four bedrooms are as well turned out as the front row at Milan fashion week.
