SquareMeal Review of Manicomio City

Housed within a clean, boxy Norman Foster design, Manicomio’s City offer is a popular double-decker: the combination of an easy-going café downstairs and more formal restaurant above works “very well”, with “super-friendly” service and a “low-key, buzzing atmosphere” throughout. Bar snacks such as carta di musica with lardo and honey signal the kitchen’s attention to detail, but it pays to explore the full menu. Pasta is a high point (perhaps Cornish red mullet tagliolini with squid ink, tomatoes, anchovy and chilli), bookended by seasonal antipasti and inventive mains such as hen pheasant bombetta with smoked mozzarella, Parma ham and chestnut. Pudding might be a deconstructed rum baba (“lovely”) or tiramisu parfait given a dark twist with liquorice meringue. There are bold flavours to be found and enjoyed – especially alongside the opportunity-rich selection of Italian wines.

Good choice of food especially if you have meat eaters and vegans to consider. Client loved the restaurant. Only comment would be a tad expensive.

I wanted a restaurant in the heart of the City of London to meet up with our great friends for our annual lunch and catch-up. The reviews look good for Maniciomio & when we arrived we were all impressed with the location & buzzy atmosphere. The starters were tasty & the sharing antipasto board for two was the highlight of the meal, with a delicious selection of meats, fish & cheeses. I chose the sea bass for my main, which was delicious & beautifully presented. However, two of our party selected the chicken dish & found it to be a bit chewy in parts, which was disappointing. The desserts (ice cream, deconstructed Rum Baba & Panna Cotta) were all lovely & enjoyed by us all. The team were all very friendly & welcoming & nothing was too much trouble for them, which definitely added to the experience

Manicomio delivers consistently excellent food in a dramatic setting: The Cornish Mussel Soup is just exceptional the Hake with grilled aubergine special has perfect. Manicomio is truly on of the city's best Italians.

This is a popular venue with my working colleagues and every time we visit we are never disappointed with the service and food. Its light and airy and a good atmosphere and very good value for money. The staff are friendly and provide an excellent service. It's well worth a recommendation to friends and colleagues.
