SquareMeal Review of Wildwood Bow Street

Wildwood is billed as a ‘small collection’ of restaurants – in other words, it’s a chain. Everything about the style, from the bottles of olive oil on each table to the expanses of bare wood, wine racks and displays of provisions suggest a thought-through MOR Italian concept – so it’s a jolly nice surprise to be served some rather good stone-baked pizzas, attractively presented pasta and grills. A tenner goes a long way here: try a ‘superfood’ salad with smoked mackerel or piri-piri chicken, spaghetti carbonara or spring vegetable risotto; alternatively, push the boat out for rump steak with Gorgonzola sauce or roasted sea bass fillets with tomatoes, courgettes and fried potatoes. Affordable cocktails and Italian wines at friendly prices are further reasons to like Wildwood’s easy style.

This is a super place for a quick meal before opera or ballet, as it's almost directly opposite the Royal Opera House. The decor is modern and cosy at the same time. The food is fabulous. I had a perfect gluten free and vegetarian salad the other week which sounds very worthy but was incredibly tasty! The old newspaper decor is very clever and classy. The staff are all very friendly and it's a great place to go. I'm so glad we found it! Hope to stay longer one time to enjoy the ambiance even more.
