Il Bordello - London
Ill Bordello is it's own Italian home and charm in East London's Wapping, it's the only one of it's kind and too right! This little Italian restaurant has all the charm and warmth you'd expect walking into a chalet in the heart of Italy, from service to food. Now I've never been to Italy but this is pretty damn close. It's a place that I tell everyone, you won't find Italian food like it unless you jumped on a plane! And my theory has yet to be stood corrected. The restaurant is small and cosy, but it's nice like that, it's homely, it's a place I've been going since before I could remember and they never let me forget! Taking Ben there the first time of course the waiters were quick to tell him they'd known me since I was this big and sleeping under the tables whilst my parents ate the night away! It's a home from home and hands down my absolute favorite restaurant, because the food is amazing but the service is great too, they're not pushy and they don't rush you to finish even if they do have a que of people out the door! The want everyone to be La Familia! Which I think is so nice and keeps that Italian Essence! People travel from all over to go here and I'm sure they've never been disappointed! We took Ben's cousin from Italy here once for dinner and even he said it was bellisimo, so if that doesn't stand the test, I don't know what does!
