REVIEW: PALATINO

WHAT?

Stevie Parle’s ‘Palatino’ is his 5th up and running restaurant based in London that celebrates the flavours of Rome. With its authentic yet simplistic infusions of colour; Palatino has paved its way for both a corporate and casual dining experience.

WHERE?

Based in the heart of Clerkenwell, an easy walk from Old Street Station.

Address: 71 Central St, London EC1V 8AB

THE VIBES?

Steering away from the typical stereotype of restaurants, its unique yellow and grey hued furniture is a great place for pretty much any occasion. During the day you can expect a more vibrant atmosphere whilst the evening compliments for a more authentic experience.

WE ATE?

STARTER

Speck, spianata romana & finocchiona


Octopus, minestra nera with Poggiotondo olive oil

Anchovy, stracciatella, toast

 

MAINS

Spaghetti alla puttanesca

Tonarelli cacio e pepe, telicherry pepper & pecorino

DESSERT

The perfect way to end this meal has to be with dessert. If you’re a fan of deeply sweet and rich flavours, this treat is a must. The bitterness of the coffee really balances out the flavours in this dish.

Chocolate cake, pistachio & honeycomb

 

OUR THOUGHTS?

Our final verdict? Why catch a flight to Rome when you can catch a cab and go straight here. Filled with incredible amounts of flavour and real Italian comfort food; this restaurant ticks all those boxes. Whether it be an intimate dine for two or a corporate based meeting – Palatino is easily  a restaurant one should keep in mind.
