SquareMeal Review of
There isn’t much action at calm, campus-like New Providence Wharf, so this neighbourhood ristorante is something of a social hub. The pizzas certainly taste better in the buzzy glass-fronted dining
room than they do from a box in front of the telly. ‘Britalian’ classics such as avocado & prawns, tagliolini with creamy chicken sauce & the dreaded ham & pineapple combo crop up here
as predicted, but Il Bianco also touts some poshed-up pizza toppings, pastas & seasonal specials featuring mozzarella di bufala, lobster, scallops & wild mushrooms for deeper pockets. The
wine list takes a similar tack, offering plenty of the usual sub-£20 Italian stuff plus some swanky bottles at the upper end. ‘The menu reads well’, although execution doesn’t always match
expectation; service also generates the odd niggle.
