Top 10 things to know about Franco's restaurant:

1) If you want to become the quintessential British gentleman, Franco’s is the place to learn your craft. This Italian institution has been around for more than 60 years.

2) Always dress to impress: there's a plethora of high-end lifestyle boutiques on Jermyn Street next to where Franco's is situated in Mayfair. Whilst the restaurant doesn't have a dress code, you will look rather incongruous if you arrive in a T-shirt.

3) Manners don't cost a penny: whether it's the receptionist, the manager, or the bar-back busy polishing Champagne glasses, without exception, they all greet you verbally along with a smile and welcoming eyes.

4) The simple things in life are often the best. When the raw ingredients they use are so supremely fresh, you just need to add a minimal amount of accompaniments: the handpicked crab has a touch of cucumber and green apple; the lobster linguine has a dash of chilli, garlic and tomato.

5) No faking. Imitations are not accepted here. All pasta is homemade from scratch.

6) Your willpower will be tested to the extreme - see the delectable classics like tiramisu and panna cotta - but if you bravely opt for the yoghurt mousse, it's more likely you will require less gym hours to continue to fit that expensive suit you just bought.

7) Ironing! You wouldn't imagine seeing a creased shirt or suit in a well-drilled establishment like Franco’s. Hence to my horror, I found myself staring at a heavily creased tablecloth all night. A minor slip-up; they really do take every small detail into consideration normally.

8) Always make sure you know how to match your taste with the occasion; don't make the cardinal sin I've been guilty of committing: cocktails taste summery, but this is a venue for refined wines and champagne. They even have their own exclusive Rosé from Provence.

9) Have the patience of a saint. The regulars here might get disgruntled if their server doesn’t know the champagne they usually drink, but the staff are true professionals and just keep on smiling throughout.

10) A quick lesson at Franco's and you’ll be ready to tackle Royal Ascot, polo with the Duke, or afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace.
