Review on Il Bordello

An archetypal old-school Italian in the heart of Wapping, Il Bordello gets jam-packed every night, so book well in advance if you want to enjoy its cracking atmosphere, spot-on service and hearty home cooking. It's gets noisy as the with the buzz of conversation increases and the waiters' good-humoured banter starts to kick in - but everyone ends up having a thoroughly good time.

The kitchen makes merry with the classics of the trattoria repertoire, pizzas are a perennial favourite and there are generally a few more modern ideas to keep the customers interested. Cottoletta milanese, lasagne and four-cheese gnocchi are bestsellers, ready-made desserts (tiramisù, pannacotta etc) are displayed in in a glass cabinet and the directly imported, all-Italian wine list is peppered with good stuff. It's worth noting that the restaurant does a brisk trade in takeaways, which is handy if you're in a hurry or neglect to book.
