A near perfect meal. We were graciously welcomed and served drinks, franciacorte cuvee brut and a gorgeous vermouth-heavy martini, whilst waiting for the kitchen to open. Starters of stuffed olive, Roman tripe and vitello tonato arrived promptly and were all three spectacular. From the grill we had a wonderfully crackled porchetta, condita and a blood sausage with pistachio (which I could take or leave).
A glass of Grillo and Kerner accompanied our shared main of fossil fish, cooked to perfection, and a lone octopus tentacle served on a perfectly creamy chickpea puree (which must have been a chore to make) and graced with a little fiery chilli oil. Very hard to choose a favourite dish - the standard was as high as we have come to expect from BdL.
Dessert were figs listed as being from heaven, perhaps hell has the best fruit as well as the best music because they were just ok. The cannoli however are surely the best in London - citrussy tart as opposed to sweet, pairing well with a Sicilian dessert wine recommended by the bartender - and texturally stunning with brittle lardy shell and crunchy stracciatella chips inside the creamy filling, love it! My partner had granita with chocolate sorbet which she enjoyed albeit with a touch of sadness that gelupo is still currently closed for business.
Our return to eating in restaurants after the last few months was decidedly worth the wait. Staff were charming and helpful, pandemic precautions were all in place. It's a meal we will remember for decades to come. Thank you so much!
