A fresh addition to the eateries down London’s Bermondsey Street, Ticino Kitchen is the area’s answer to long-weathered lack when it comes to artisan European restaurants. Ticino’s pizzas (and the dough-based delights that feature on their delicious antipasti boards) are properly artisanal – real deal Neapolitan sourdough pizza, made in a wood-fired oven certified by the Neapolitan Pizza Federation, and expertly prepared by trained pizzaioli. It would be remiss to forget, however, that Ticino’s culinary mandate extends beyond pizza to delicious Italian and European dishes and cocktails, all made to order with fresh and seasonal ingredients.
Bermondsey Street is hardly lacking for places to eat, but locals have always felt that a solid restaurant offering artisan European fare would slot in perfectly in this corner of London. Now, on the corner of Bermondsey Street and Newham’s Row, wish-fulfilment has occurred in the friendly form of Ticino Kitchen. The proprietors are long-time local artisan bakers, whose ovens are housed right across the road. Naturally, the bakery supplies Ticino with fresh bread and pastry, and the seriously good dough for their seriously proper pizzas, made according to time-honoured tradition the Neapolitan way. Many will dine here simply for the classic pizza, emerging from the oven with the charred, puffy crust that is the mark of the real Neapolitan pie. However, Ticino is more distinctly a continental European-influenced eatery with a wide ranging quality offering chalked up on the menu.
Whether you’re indulging in Ticino’s already-renowned lunchtime specials or a full-on dinner, you should at least begin a meal at this Bermondsey Street European restaurant with some rustic antipasti. Perfect for casual group lunches, these platters are already a favourite in southeast London, served on wooden boards and offering a teaser for the artisan pan-European cuisine on offer. With menus that change regularly, according to the seasons and the whim of the skilled cheffing team, Ticino Kitchen is family and celebration friendly, buggy and wheelchair accessible, and also houses a party room that can be booked out for up to 70 people. Ticino - we raise our perfectly mixed Negroni to you.
Fantastic food, with a concise and delicious menu, very reasonably priced. Good service. A real local gem, we will be back on a regular basis!
First time here and after some initial confusion as they have recently changed the name of the restaurant we found ourselves in a charming little place. It was packed so well worth booking. After a mix-up with the tables which meant we had to move, the manager insisted our starters were on the house. We enjoyed a fabulous meal- the chicken supreme was divine, as was the bruschetta. Service was slow at times but it was a Saturday night and it was busy so not a complaint but do bear this in mind if you're hungry. Would definitely return. The atmosphere and food were top notch and very reasonable.
Fabulous atmosphere and really attentive service. The food was terrific from starter to finish.. We will certainly be back again when we are next in Bermondsey. Highly recommended!
Great food and great service. I really recommend the restaurant. They use very fresh ingredients and the staff is very accomodating with any special dietary requests. One of my favourite restaurants in brmondsey street. Great Pizza!
Great service, one of the waitress is really kind and helpful. I wish all restaurants had the same staff. Food is great as usual. Just a small thing. We had been there for 1,5 hours, having deserts, and I could see the manager wishing that we would leave soon. I understand but it is not so nice to feel that all of a sudden as other clients arrive, all people want is you to get out. no so subtle.
I went there last night with my friend in a wheelchair and they were absolutely lovely and tried to find us a good spot. Apart from the good service the Italian dishes are fingerlicking good. And it is located in quirky Bermondsey Street which is easy to get to. I can truely recommend this place!
Brilliant food and service. I had the bruschetta, ravioli and chocolate tart and it was all delicious. Nice atmosphere on a Saturday night, we had the table all night and were not made to feel rushed at all even though lots of people trying to get a table.
The food was really good and the staff was really friendly. But the service was so slow! It took more than 30 minutes before we got our appetizers, another 30 for our main course, same with desert. Despite that they were really friendly, it was all tasty (the cod and risotto was delicious), so I'm gonna assume that it was a bad fluke so will go back.
Really good meal, excellent service. Absolutely nothing wrong with the restaurant. I've been there three times and it's become one of my favourites! The food is so delicious and it's not too expensive either for the quality of the food.
The food is very good and authentic! The pizzas range is great and delicious. Friendly and attentive staff and good music in the background. Would have liked a bit more choices in the pasta dishes, but otherwise really good. Can't wait to go back!
