Restaurant Review | Bar Remo Italian Restaurant, Central London

25 Oct

Have you ever had the pleasure of dining at Bar Remo? My cousin Daniel chose this restaurant as the venue of his birthday meal back in May 2011 and it was a fantastic choice. A lovely homely family run Italian that’s been open for I don’t know how long but certainly since the 80’s. The walls on the ground floor are adorned with autographs from iconic greats such as Sophia Loren and some other people who I can’t remember right now. The wood fire pizza oven is located on the ground floor where you can see the chefs kneading away at dough for pizzas and pizza breads. Downstairs you’ll find the kitchen where more chefs sweat away whilst cooking Spaghetti, Gnocchi and alike.

Speaking of Gnocchi…

The first time I visited in May I had Spaghetti Carbonara which was lovely, however I had a serious case of food envy as my cousin Serena had ordered the Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Cheese. When she couldn’t finish all of her food (a popular routine of hers) I started to get stuck in quickly forgetting about my pasta.

Five months later after working late one Friday night (ok I went to the pub for a couple too), The Man left work and I suggested dinner to him. He asked where and I reeled off a couple of suggestions of which Bar Remo was one. I’d only been talking about it at lunch so really, really wanted to go there.

This time I wasn’t going to make the same mistake twice. To start we shared Parma Ham and Melon. For mains The Man had Calzone (he commented that it wasn’t as good as Stef’s or Soho Pizzeria) and I had the Gnocchi. Beautiful dear Gnocchi… It was fantastic. Better than (dare I say it) one of my other favourite Italian restaurant Pizzeria Pappagone’s very own… I didn’t regret it but The Man sharing a bedroom with me later that evening probably did.

It. Was. Worth. Every. Parp.

I can’t elaborate on how good this Gnocchi is…
