Square Meal Review of Olivomare ?

The ‘bizarre’ decor leaves you in no doubt that this member of Mauro Sanna’s Olivo group is devoted to seafood: an abstract monochrome mural shows fish, boats and gulls, a construction of wriggly white nets hangs from the ceiling, and the ‘clinical’ white room is illuminated by strange ‘jellyfish’ light fittings. The menu changes with the seasons, but certain items are always available: ‘perfectly balanced’ linguine with crab and chilli, sliced air-cured tuna beautifully presented with green beans and sun-dried tomatoes, and a traditional Sardinian broth with couscous-like fregola pasta and clams. The fish is ‘outstanding’, but the deafening din can sometimes make it feel like ‘dining on a Heathrow runway’ – no wonder many regulars take refuge on the pavement terrace for a spot of Belgravia people-watching.

    ytTastes :: Olivomare – An Italian Affair

    If you're ever in need of spaghetti with lobster, this is the place to go in London! Olivomare based in Lower Belgravia, not far from Victoria. My sister and brother-in-law are also fans and when they decided to visit London, they asked me to book a table before their arrival for lunch on the day they flew in. Olivomare is a Seafood Sardinian based restaurant with a wonderful interior designed by Sardinian architect Pierluigi Piu. The staff is friendly with a mix of Italian temperament and so far from my experience, I would really go for a meal there during the week and at lunch time, perhaps it is the expectation of the business lunchers that keep their standards high at this time? No matter, as a bunch of us wait outside in the cold for our table to be ready (we had one authentic Italian who was dying for some Italian food as he had been “Italian-dry” for over a month)...
