SquareMeal Review of Square Olive

Superbly located near the river and just a stone’s throw from Hampton Court Palace, this stylish Italian restaurant and lounge bar is equally popular with locals and camera-toting visitors to the neighbourhood. Inside, Square Olive puts on a chic, fashionable face with smart contemporary fittings alongside more traditional Italian features and creature comforts, while the food blends trattoria classics with a few surprising ideas. Antipasti might range from beef carpaccio or spiedino (skewers of grilled seafood) to ‘fantasia’ pancakes filled with caramelised onions, goats’ cheese, artichokes, ricotta and courgettes, while pasta might include abruzzesi (fresh pappardelle in a slow-cooked casserole of Tuscan sausage, pork belly, lamb and chilli in tomato sauce). Pizzas, risottos and grills also go down a treat. Saturday night is music night (soul, jazz, salsa etc), and the restaurant holds monthly cookery classes too.
