Review on Locale
Situated within sight of the London Eye, this branch of Locale is a great favourite with tourists, although it also does a grand job in feeding the local populus. An open kitchen is at the centre of things and there are striking modern canvases on the walls. Locale also boasts a cool lounge for cocktails and stuzzichini, plus an outdoor terrace for a spot of sightseeing.
The kitchen puts its faith in Italian ingredients and authentic Italian recipes for a repertoire of dishes with regional overtones. Stinco d'agnello (roast lamb shank with mash) and filleto di branzino all'acquapazza (sea bass with fish broth, cherry tomatoes and croûtons) are specialities, but the menu also runs to fresh pappardelle with duck ragù, osso buco and roast salmon fillet on spinach with balsamic dressing. Pizzas are also available and there are some creamy sweets and ice creams to round things off.
The carefully chosen, mainly Italian wine list is bolstered by a monthly selection of guest bottles from boutique vineyards. There's a branch at 222 Munster Road, Fulham SW6, and further outlets are in the pipeline.
