A Taste of Italy - Sannino - The Show Before The Show Review

  • Rating Hidden gem (Rating 4.0/5)
    This restaurant is ideally placed if you are looking for good food in the vicinity of the Kings's Theatre, it is literally a hop, skip and jump away. It is a basement restaurant with a narrow stairway down, probably not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Tables are compact but not intrusively so. Good choice of menu with pre theatre specials on offer. My friend and I both chose pollo arrabiata which carried an extra surcharge to add the chicken, the portion was a good size, but not enormous, and very tasty. Beware it is quite spicy but that suited us fine. We opted for desserts which, curiously enough are not an option on the two course pre theatre menu. The only down side for me was, there were quite a lot of flies around in the restaurant, probably due to the hot weather which necessitated the street door being left open. Slightly off putting having to swat them away frequently. Would I go back? Definitely! Book early if you are going to the Kings, the restaurant is tiny so would, I imagine, fill up quickly for pre theatre meals.
