SquareMeal Review of Coco di Mama

Fleet Street is overrun with chain eateries and refuelling points, so it’s reassuring to see the lunch-hour crowd queuing outside Coco di Mama – an exuberant and plucky takeaway-cum-café dishing up imported Mediterranean fare with a winning smile. Founded by a couple of ex-bankers who left the financial world to pursue their passion for Italian food, it takes sourcing seriously – note the coarse dry-cured salami napoli, the single-estate olive oil and the slow-dried Sicilian ‘al bronzo’ pasta. The latter plays a starring role on the menu, and can be paired with anything from ‘majestic meatballs’ to pesto sauce or portobello mushrooms. Artisan baguettes and salads provide the back-up, with ‘total tiramisu’ or Sicilian lemon cheesecake on hand for those with a sweet tooth, and excellent coffee to boot. Office deliveries, too.
