There’s no shortage of Italian restaurants opening across London recently, and now Tavolino is adding to the list. Launching in April in London Bridge, the restaurant will serve simple dishes cooked with produce from across Italy and the UK.
With former head chef of Bancone Louis Koravilas at the helm, guests can expect a selection of pastas made by the team each morning, cuts of meat and fish to share for secondi and desserts including balsamic vinegar chocolate mousse.
Split across two floors, the interiors are inspired by traditional Milanese coffee bars and trattorias of Florence. With views over the river, the walls will be painted in shades of terracotta and cream, combined with dark wood, timber flooring.
Commenting on the opening, Korovilas says “I respect the Italian approach to cooking: a dedication to quality ingredients, eaten at their peak, with the flavours coaxed from each one. At Tavolino, we’ll be steering away from using overused produce of mediocre quality and have spent the last six months going directly to suppliers who have been perfecting their produce for several generations. For example, we’ve found the best Pecorino Sardo DOP and a 24-month aged Parmigiano Reggiano for our pastas, and our lemons are sourced directly from a farmer on the Amalfi coast,”
