SquareMeal Review of Il Bacio

Pastaphiles should get down to this unpretentious Italian, pronto. The Sardinian family who own Il Bacio have brought a little of their homeland to the backstreets of Highbury, with sunny yellow walls, Peroni on tap & a TV tuned to the beautiful game. Pasta comes in various Atkins-flouting combinations, including specialities such as trofie alla carlofortina (sea bass, clams, cherry tomatoes & bottarga) & culurgiones (Sardinian ravioli filled with cheese, potato & mint). Diners are urged ‘please do not hesitate to ask for your favourite dish, eg bolognese, carbonara, lasagne etc’. There’s also a tempting selection of antipasti favourites, secondi piatti at low prices (with fish a forte), & a wine list that roams across Italy. Football fans stop by for crispy-based pizzas before heading to the nearby Emirates stadium.
