Do Believe The Hype | Padella, 6 Southwark Street, London

Once again, we were late to the party, leaving it a little while for the hype to ease and the queues likewise. Padella, in case you don’t know, is a pasta bar by… Continue reading

Trulli Lovely | Pulia, 36a & 36b Stoney Street, London SE1 9LB

We absolutely adore the region of Puglia in the relatively untouched heel of Italy. Home to whitewashed towns with trulli – unique stone huts with conical roofs. We fell in love with it… Continue reading

A Home From Homeslice | Homeslice Pizza, 52 Wells Street, Fitzrovia, London W1T 3PR

When writing up our restaurant reviews, the first thing that I try to do is think of a title. It has to be witty (usually fails), pun-tasticly clever (again hit and miss) and… Continue reading

Weigh To Go! | Vico, 1 Cambridge Circus, London, WC2H 8PA

Ah, paying for food by weight. We remember when The Table used to do that with their salad at lunch time, eventually they dropped it – for whatever reason they felt fit. Newbie… Continue reading

Right up our Street | Union Street Café, 47-51 Great Suffolk Street, London SE1 0BS

When Gordon Ramsay‘s Union Street Café popped up on our work doorstep we couldn’t believe our luck. There was a huge buzz about the opening, rumours of David Beckham being involved and miscommunication… Continue reading

Family Sundays at Bocconcino, 19 Berkeley Street, Mayfair, London W1J 8ED

As we walked through the doors of Mayfair’s Bocconcino Charlotte (10) turned to me and mouthed: ‘It’s posh!’ As we took our coats off we admired the sweeping metal spiral staircase from the… Continue reading

Pizza Perfect | Pizza Pilgrims, 11 Kingly Street, London, W1B 5PW

OK, I’m not being mean,  but why do so-called Londoners go to Pizza Express? This is a question we ask ourselves frequently. There are tonnes of greater (and cheaper) restaurants, it’s not 1998… Continue reading

Cucina Asellina revisited | ME London Hotel, 336-337, The Strand, London WC2R 1HA

By some weird coincidence we revisited the revamped Cucina Asellina at the plush celeb haunt ME London hotel exactly two years after the first visit. Although when I say we, I mean my… Continue reading

Some of the best Italian food in London | Orso, 27 Wellington Street, London WC2E 7DB

So what’s important to you when you visit a restaurant? A) Does it have to be all shiny and new with the enamel dishes fresh out of bubble wrap? B) Does it have… Continue reading

Smokin’ | Ember Yard, 60 Berwick Street, London W1F 8SU

We were looking forward to visiting Ember Yard, really looking forward to visiting. Marina had given it a gushing review in her Guardian column, and a respected friend in the hospitality industry said… Continue reading

N-N-N-N-Nineteen, Nineteen | Diciannove, 19 New Bridge Street, London, EC4V 8DB

It’s funny how certain spaces give off certain vibes. As we entered the lobby via some revolving doors I was none the wiser. Even when I noticed one restaurant to our left and… Continue reading

Southern comfort | Ostuni, 43-45 Lonsdale Road, London NW6 6RA

Anyone that knows us is more than aware of our love of Puglia. Having holidayed and married there at Trullo Fico, it holds a pretty special place in our hearts. It’s been two… Continue reading

A little slice of Tuscany in Soho | Tuscanic, 72 Old Compton Street, London W1D 4UN

Often it takes us a while to relax and get settled in when we visit a restaurant. We’re usually rushing and knackered from the day job, so switching off and enjoying the night… Continue reading

Cucina Asellina, 336 – 337 Strand, Aldwych, Covent Garden, London. WC2R 1HA

When it came to celebrating my little sister’s engagement recently, I knew Cucina Asellina at the ME London hotel would be right up her street. The latest in restaurant launches from the One Group,… Continue reading

Vapiano, Bankside, 2, 90b Southwark Street, London SE1 0FD

We first discovered Vapiano on one of our visits to Sweden, when our budget was low and we couldn’t afford to spend a fortune on a meal, which is pretty unavoidable in Stockholm.… Continue reading

Dalla Terra, 25 Slingsby Place, St Martin’s Courtyard, London WC2E 9AB

Our initial gut feeling about Dalla Terra, a newish little Italian wine bar/restaurant on St Martin’s Courtyard was pretty bad. The reason being one of the waiters made us feel a little intimidated… Continue reading

St Martin’s Court Global Food Festival StMartinsCourtyardGlobalFoodFestival St Martin’s Courtyard in Covent Garden paid tribute to the cultural diversity of London this ‘summer’ with a free Global Food Festival last Saturday 14th July.… Continue reading
