Locale Cucina Italiana in Fulham has one of the best pick up experiences in London!
Ok, silly. I’m a married lady, so I’m not referring to any type of flirting shenanigans. I’m talkin’ tiramisu. It’s an Italian dessert. The name of it literally means ‘pick me up.’
I have to say, Locale’s uplifting experience isn’t just limited to dessert. No, mi tesoro, it’s a whole lot more!
After a ten minute walk from the Parsons Green underground station, Mr. Sunny and I arrived to Locale Cucina Italiana. Naturally, it was a beautiful sunny evening in London.
Foremost, they have a completely separate gluten free menu. Do you know how rare that is for Italian restaurants?
Both were molto bene!
He says it was ‘Gorgeous!’. I had a couple sneaky bites, and I have to say… he is RIGHT!
It was a total battle for me between the Lobster and Prosecco Risotto, fresh herb and sour cream versus the Pollo al Madeira. Sauteed chicken breast, French beans with melted mozzarella cheese, sauteed mushrooms, madeira sauce and roasted cherry tomato. Do you know how I decided?
You’ll never guess!
We enjoyed both of them. However, the mashed potatoes were without a doubt naughty. They were so creamy! I seemed to think they had a good amount of parmesan cheese mixed in to them. Soooooo yummy!
Even though we were full, we were coerced in to trying the tiramisu. I say ‘coerced’ because tiramisu is a tricky dessert. Both Mr. Sunny and I love it. The problem is, often it’s not made right, so it can be very disappointing. Plus, he and I both make it ourselves. Because we were ‘assured’ Locale’s tiramisu was excellent, we decided to give it a go.
After his first bite, Mr. Sunny assessed it best with, ‘Damn! We should’ve ordered two!’
To die for.
Mr. Sunny loved the frosty beer glass that came with his Moretti. My Chianti (which if you’re a Sunny reader, you know I never order) was fruity and smooth. Again, I went with this wine because our Server said so.
We were a bit surprised when we picked up the glasses and they were warm. Neither of us had ever had limoncello served this way. Another gold star! They were la la luscious.
Our entire experience was stellar at Locale Cucina Italiana. From our outstanding service to the fabulous flavours of the food, this restaurant gets a gold medal from us.
It’s located at 222 Munster Road Fulham, London SW6 6AY. You can follow them on Twitter too. In fact, their Twitter account is fun and very engaging with followers. I love that. They also just started an Instagram account, so check that out. Their menu changes often to reflect seasonal changes and specials. Love that too.
If you think this restaurant is too far for you, my suggestion is… well, get picked up! And a tiramisu 😉
Our dinner was complimentary for the purpose of a review. However, this did not influence our opinion.
Our evening at Locale Cucina Italiana one of the best dining experiences Mr. Sunny have had in London.
