Introduction To The Restaurant Review
We started writing restaurants reviews, we thought the reviews O’Marino wrote in The Guardian were something awesome. We have referenced it somewhat, and may visit some of the restaurant reviewers recommendations. If it’s one of the restaurants she has reviewed we will point it out. Her collection of restaurants were eclectic to the extreme, and spanned the whole country, but her London choices were of particular interest to us. This is the kind of thing we have sought to do with our restaurant visits. Mainly for convenience but also London is the coolest place to be where the coolest things are. In her collection she picked different restaurants they were not just pretentious restaurants one feels one ought to go to, but restaurants that were genuinely inspiring. I think it’s a good way to go so we have explored in our own way the area of the culinary arts. I hope you enjoy my series here.
We went to the Colosseo Italian in Victoria. The decor was good, there were carved heads in stone and a mock pillared temple that made up the restaurants mirrors, silly but good.
Italian restaurants have these small wooden chairs and seats, which always hone your attention to the dishes and set up the experience to follow. I got what seemed like a small chopping board of hams, etc. with rocket. Having Italian food always reminds you somehow of the good weather in the country, the dishes are the kind of thing you would cook if the weather was hot. I had to order a garlic bread to go with. It’s not as upmarket as let’s say La Scala in Trafalgar Square, with the jazz music playing it’s quite formal and it’s good to go somewhere which is a bit looser and freer in feel. The Executive Chef Vincenzo Romano at the Colosseo I read on the website, creates five new dishes week! There’s the theatre nearby, so there is some theme of the theatrical, in all this.
I had a glass of water, and a Coke side by side. The vegetable soup was better than expected, and vegetable soups can be quite inventive as was the one I had here.
The mains was a lasagne, the plum tomatos in it were quite loud. The metal type dish was almost rusted. The waitress reminded me of someone from the past, but that’s all good now. They were talking in Italian, and the atmosphere was quite lively with the staff there.
The dessert was cheesecake, in just the right amount, and at a price that was good, that was good to have with the coffee. They have The Old Amalfi sister restuarant in London, we could check out.
