SquareMeal Review of Fiume

Silver Award

Part of the D&D stable, Fiume means ‘river’ and the site boasts a large alfresco terrace next to the Thames, decked out with olives trees and potted herbs. Inside, the open-plan dining room is stylish and buzzy; the kind of space that’s equally good for groups or dinner per due. The menu draws on southern Italy and is split into antipasti, primi and secondi, plus cicchetti snacks such as punchy crostini topped with anchovies and mozzarella. Stand-outs on our visit included tagliolini laced with generous amounts of fresh crab and Amalfi lemon, perfectly al dente pasta boosted with a judicious kick of chilli spice; and decadent burrata tortelli with sage and truffle, crunchy hazelnuts adding texture to the creamy parcels. Elsewhere the menu includes lamb scottadito – juicy chops served with smoky aubergine – and homestyle ‘Roman’ chicken in tomato and olive sauce. Sicilian staples such as crisp zucchini fritti and tiramisu are also worth a punt; while a weekend brunch menu, the all-Italian wine list and great selection of aperitivos are further pluses.

About

Italian restaurant Fiume is the brainchild of restaurant group D&D London. Located right on the bank of the river Thames (Fiume is Italian for River, after all), this stylish yet relaxed spot can be found in Battersea Power Station’s Circus West Village serving rustic southern Italian fare. The menu is inspired by Italian island of Sicily – wholesome, hearty and authentic - and using only the freshest Mediterranean ingredients. While Francesco oversees the restaurant, the kitchen is led by head chef Pasquale Cossolino, with both chefs hailing from the same region in southern Italy. 

The décor is designed by Macaulay Sinclair, who’s also the brains behind the likes of Hawksmoor and Dishoom. Natural materials such as oak, stone and marble create a calm yet stylish setting, with injections of colour coming from blue upholstery and artwork on the walls. Warm-toned hanging lights add to the naturally bright interiors while a large, open wine case showcases its strong collection. On warmer days, diners can take in the views of the Thames on the alfresco piazza, which is decked out with terracotta pots and lemon and olive trees.  

Expect a crowd-pleasing menu focussed on Italian classics. Cicchetti and antipasti takes the form of scallop with honey and 'nduja, and fried calamari with tropea onion and chilli jam. The ‘primi’ course includes spaghetti cacio e pepe with truffle, and tagliatelle with Welsh lamb ragout, mint and pecorino, all made with daily-made pasta. While ‘secondi’ includes grilled sea bass with tenderstem broccoli and mash potatoes or spicy fregola, mussels and cannellini beans. For something more laid-back, there are plenty of pizzas topped with an array of inspired toppings. And dessert features new takes on Italian favourites, such as vanilla pannacotta with coffee and staranise sauce. There is a child-friendly menu available, too, as well as a changing seasonal menu, focussed on white truffle, for example.  

From the drink's menu, there is a strong selection of negronis and signature cocktails, as well as Italian wines, beers, aperitifs and digestifs.

Disappointing, service slow, bottle of Prosecco and biers luke warm  food made up for it though. Upside the wine and beers complimented.

Stunning location next to the refurbished Battersea Power Station and the Thames. Good range of decent menu options, and the quality was good if not stunning. Pleasant and understatemed service. A good option in the local area.

A fun spot

A fun special occasion restaurant. It feels like a special place to be, although it is not like, Padella-grade Italian food. But it is a very fun location, and the service is good. It is a bit loud. But it's right by the Thames Clipper dock. :)
