SquareMeal Review of B-Soho (bar)

Sicily and Naples inspire this new cocktail/pizza parlour at what was briefly 52 North, where live acoustic music from Luca (lead singer of a supergroup created by F1’s Eddie Jordan) plays second fiddle to mixology from £8 a pop. Stand-outs include Dolce Vita (vodka, Licor 43, vanilla strawberry and Prosecco), the Anglo-Italian ‘Begroni’ and some daft-sounding names that are nevertheless worth a punt – ‘banana-na-na-na-nanana’ is hard to pronounce, even if you’re sober. Italian wines head upwards to £65 for Brunello di Montalcino Poggio della Badia 2007. Whether you’d automatically order that with a calzone, a 12-inch quattro formaggi or spicy salami pizza is a moot point; otherwise the menu takes in various trattoria staples including aubergine parmigiana, lasagne, tiramisu and gelati. Late weekend DJs, karaoke and bottles of spirits from £200 belie the owners’ nightclub roots.

Booked a table for lunch with 10 friends, but the numbers cannot excuse the plain awful experience. Starters arrived cold; mains had also been standing for some time it seemed. Half the dishes arrived followed by the other half some 15 minutes later. Manager was blasé and reluctant to help. A free cocktail really couldn't make up for a thoroughly depressing lunch. One to avoid.

Spent Monday night at this venue and really enjoyed it. It was a Karaoke night so we had a right giggle at other peoples expense. Atmosphere was great, service was good and the food was to die for. Loved the pizza, it looks really big when it arrives on your plate but its really thin and tasty. Drinks had the right mix of alcohol to mixers. In terms of value for money its great for a London based venue, food was awesome and it was absolutely rammed full of people. Great night, Will be returning very soon.
