Looking for bottomless booze this weekend? Piazza Italiana in the heart of the City has you covered
Every Friday and Saturday from 6pm onwards the bottomless Prosecco, beer and Bellinis flow steadily at Piazza Italiana, a real hidden gem on Threadneedle Street in the City of London. Once home to the British Linen Bank, now a little slice of Italy. With its stunning Edwardian architecture and interior – it feels like a special occasion as soon as you arrive.
The staff are so attentive, from the moment you walk through the doors, right up until you walk out of them. It’s relaxed, yet sophisticated and great for a date night, or any occasion. Sip away as you look through the menu, crafted by culinary guru Remo Mazzucato. Each dish sounds mouthwatering, it’s hard to choose.
The Salmone Alla Barbabietola antipasti was a little plate of heaven – delicate beetroot-cured slices of salmon with crab-lemon crème fraiche, candied beets, wine-pickled cucumber and trout caviar. We loved-loved the lobster linguine – it’s a must-try and one of the most popular dishes – with crab meat and a beautiful creamy tomato sauce that really did the lobster justice. We can’t wait to return and try the taglioni pasta, having watched in envy as the pasta was spun in a large pecorino cheese wheel at the next table. Last but not least, a fine tiramisu that went down very well with a glass of Quinta do Noval 20 year old port.
Don’t miss the unlimited Prosecco, beer and bellinis – every Friday and Saturday from 6pm onwards for £25 when you order any main dish from the menu.
