- Bar Italia !
I just wanted to write a few lines about a place I love : Bar Italia.
The whole London knows this little piece of Italy born in 1949. It’s been passed on through three generations and is open 22 hours a day, 7 days a week.
That’s where I used to go for aperitif, sometimes on my own after work, that’s where I met a few ‘habitués’ or where I go at 3am, drunk or not, for a pizza and a cappuccino.
A lot of memories in this cute place decorated with Parma ham and panettone. Me, for an after party dancing rock’n roll by the counter while waiting for food. Me, having a glass of wine at the terrace in freezing winter because it was soooo romantic, me, passing from Bar Italia to Little Italy next door for a boogie on the dance floor after the pizza and after the cappuccino and vice versa.
The food is good, we feel like in Milan while having their famous ‘ristretto’, clients and staff are friendly and they close only from 5am to 7am to do the cleaning.
Bar Italia, 22 Frith Street, London W1D 4RF.
