Places like Casa Italia in the centre of Harborne are classic Italian restaurants that offer a mix of welcoming surroundings, a laid-back atmosphere and a personalised service that only family-run establishments can truly offer. But, above all, they offer homemade food of the highest standard – from slow-cooked, meticulously seasoned meatballs (polpettes) to cheese and spinach stuffed cannelloni, these Harborne restaurants will send Italian fans to heaven and back.
Alongside relaxed trattorias, Harborne's Italian restaurants also feature some upmarket options that would be perfect for romantic evenings out. At venues like Valentino's, you will be pampered from the very first moment you enter. Let sommeliers pick the finest wines from their cellars, and choose from a range of specialities that are hard to find at run-of-the-mill eateries. Sure, where else can you tuck into monkfish served with a lobster sauce? And with dependable options like steaks served with dolce latte cheese or lamb shank in a red wine sauce, choosing your dish is really the only thing you have to worry about.
And those choices extend right to the end of the meal at Harborne's Italian restaurants. In Italy, the meal isn't over until the last crumb of dolce has been consumed – and local ristorantes are masters in whipping up decadent desserts. There are tiramisus with just enough liqueur to give a kick (but not to smother the coffee and cream) as well as Black Forest gateaux with artful chocolate swirls, smooth and sweet panna cottas and, of course, fresh and fruity sorbets to clean your palate, rounding things off perfectly.
