London

Piccolino – London

Hi guys!

A couple of days ago my manager flew in from Croatia to London so we decided to go somewhere to lunch. I was starving so much that I couldn’t be bothered with looking to far so I just sat down in this restaurant. Located on Heddon Street in Mayfair, away from the hustle and bustle of Regent Street in London, it is in a great place for a quiet lunch. Now the great thing about buying your own food for blog posts is that you can write honestly your opinions. Which I really like doing ts me. So let me start from the beginning. The exterior looks cozy, lots of heaters and room. We decided to sit outside because the weather was amazing. The waiter came over, gave us the menus and we ordered some drinks. Now my favorite part.  The service was REALLY slow. I was waving so much my arms started to hurt. None of the waiters actually paid any attention, I also need to mention it wasn’t busy at all. So when he finally came I just wanted to grill him and eat him. Kidding I don’t eat people! I decided to go for Pesto Genovese, on the other side of the table the men ordered a Cesar salad, and Veal schnitzel. The best way you can judge a restaurant is by their most generic meals because chefs usually hate them. The food finally arrived and I was really happy. The first few bites were a bit awkward but after I realized why I actually enjoyed my meal a lot. It was only missing salt and it was a bit dry so I drizzled a bit of olive oil and VOILA!

Now I can’t really judge the other meals as they looked quite nice but I just didn’t try it because I was so obsessed with eating mine. Also their choices were quite boring.  Why do men always order standard things? Always steaks and fries and stuff like that… As  we brought our meals to the end, it was time to pay. Again, my arm was hurting until I got noticed. Overall, great location , the waiters really need to pay more attention even tho they were quite pleasant. The overall cost was just over £30 per person, which is actually a standard price for any Mayfair restaurant. Would I recommend this restaurant? Probably yes in a specific occasion. My suggestion is that you order something unusual as I think the meals that people order the least, are probably their best meals. I mean, every chef gets tired of making the same food, so if you order something people don’t order so much they will probably put a lot of effort in it. Great place for a quick lunch with friends or bushiness partners. Not sure I would like to have a romantic dinner there, but then again, I didn’t have one so I can’t judge , however the interior inside looked really nice.
