Squaremeal Review of Bibo ?

Rustic Italian is the theme at Bibo – a new eatery devised by busy restaurateur Rebecca Mascarenhas (Sonny's, Kitchen W8 etc) and Chris Beverley (one-time chef at Theo Randall at the InterContinental Hotel). The long, painted-brick dining room sets an unfussy tone with its bentwood chairs and plain wooden tables, allowing the food to steal the limelight. Our hearty, ham-based pasta and chickpea soup was comforting in the extreme, while slow-cooked, sage-flavoured pork belly was neatly offset by braised fennel and a sweet/sharp hit from datterini tomatoes. Fish dishes are equally self-assured – whole roast plaice with lentils, spinach, anchovy, capers and lemon needs a steady chef to get it right. There’s also plenty of attention to detail – from big napkins and carafes of free water to the well-researched, all-Italian wine list. In short, a celebration of generous, earthy goodness for Putney locals.

    Dips Dines :: Bibo: Quite Average but Excellent Wine | Dips Dines

    Bibo is a modern Italian restaurant & bar right by East Putney tube station. I’d first read about it in March when it was newly opened and thought it sounded pretty nice, and then when it was recommended to me by a chef at another restaurant, high hopes ensued.

    It was relatively busy on a mid-week evening, with a nice low key buzz in the room, without being noisy. The interior is simple – lighting by way of hand blown glass lamps and solid oak tables positioned with a good amount of distance between each. There’s also an outdoor (roadside) terrace seating area. Personally, I found the room to be a little...

    TheFoodaholic :: TheFoodaholic: REVIEW: Bibo, Upper Richmond Road, Putney

    It's been a few years now since I was a Putney local. Four years to be exact. I used to live in the idyllic village of Barnes, but its slightly out of the way location and reputation for baby making got the better of me. There's only so many pushchairs and parent toddler evenings I can cope with and fighting my way around the lovely farmers market without tripping over a small child was enough. Living in Barnes I found myself in and around nearby Putney quite alot and over the years the foodie scene in Putney has changed significantly. Before there was nothing but fast food and the occasional nice gastro pub. But...

    The Boozy Bunch :: The Boozy Bunch Bibo Proper Italian in Putney amp

    Bibo has been on my hitlist for ages since almost every blogger I know raves about it. It’s rare a place lives up to the hype, but Bibo not only met but exceeded expectations with its delicious flavours and near perfect execution.
    Bibo is an Italian place located around the corner from Putney train station and is quite reasonably priced. The d&cor is simple but comfortable and the staff are very warm and welcoming and proved quite adept at catering to my sisters’ desire to make up their own vegetarian set menu.
