SquareMeal Review of Briciole

1

"GOOD"

Readers are full of enthusiasm for this “fantastic” local eatery – the brainchild of chef Maurizio Morelli from fancy-pants Latium in Fitzrovia. By contrast, informality is the name of the game at Briciole – so expect a cheery trattoria vibe, “genial” service and easy prices, with a ‘gastronomia’ (deli/café) attached. The name means ‘breadcrumbs’, so it’s no surprise that artisan baked goods feature strongly on the long menu (focaccia bruschetta with ‘nduja and Burrata, say), while the tapas-style approach also yields soft slices of smoked tuna, grilled sausages with bitter turnip tops and sweet-and-sour Palermo-style meatballs. Veggies are well served, traditional desserts range from Sicilian cannoli to moist chocolate cake, and there are some terrific regional wines by the glass. Alternatively, do some shopping and bag a table in the adjoining deli for coffee, pastries, well-sourced charcuterie and cheeses.

We shared the Bruschetta and tomatoes and a plate of Finocchiona, which was thinly sliced, piled high and super tasty, I couldn't believe it was only £4. I had the lasagne (traditional, no tomato sauce here!), which was delicious and my husband had the meatballs in tomato sauce with a side of rosemary and garlic potatoes - both were perfect size portions for us. We drank a lovely bottle of Gavi di Gavi and the whole bill including service came to £55 - to say we were impressed would be an understatement. The restaurant was packed to the rafters with happy, full-bellied people having a thoroughly good time on an average Wednesday night. I am so happy to have found Briciole, we will definitely be back soon. Note - you need to book, they were turning people away at the door.

Predominantly small plate menu with interesting choices and at fair prices. At lunchtime Briciole was full and really buzzing. Nice addition to the area.
