Del Boy would love the classy dark polished wood, white linen and lively murmur. A seasoned crooner at the piano warbles such hits as My Girl and Unchained Melody.
WHAT TO ORDER
The What’s On Award-Winning Menu, of course. Creamy buffalo mozzarella and beef tomato with basil pesto sauce, followed by dreamy ricotta and spinach tortelli with black truffle brunoise. Choose a tender beef tenderloin for the secondo, or pan-fried salmon steak with asparagus, fennel and horseradish. The light pannacotta rounds things off nicely.
LOOK OUT FOR
Over 20 types of olive oil racked up on a trolley for your dipping, drizzling pleasure.
A safe bet for good Italian food in the heart of JBR.
The first Bice opened in Milan in 1926, when local woman Beatrice ‘Bice’ Ruggeri decided to extend her famous hospitality to the public. Her trattoria quickly won the affections of the neighbourhood, and since then her sons Remo and Roberto have taken the name to 35 restaurants worldwide.
More Italian than a singing gondolier.
