On Tuesday I headed into Birmingham for the launch of Bardolino which is a new restaurant that just opened in the Cube. Bardolino is a new Pizzeria, Bellini and Espresso bar by Marco Pierre White. The 'Ultra Casual' restaurant is located at the Cube and is canal side so it's a fab stop if your in Birmigham shopping and you want a bite to eat with the girls or if you have a family occasion and all want to get together for a meal.
Marco believes that italian food is 'affordable and delicious and thats exactly what Bardolino is.
Their main menu is very affordable and is full of lot of amazing dishes that sound amazing. I will be popping by next time i'm in Birmingham to try their Pizza and Al Forno's.
I was so excited when I arrived at Bardolino's and the table was full of amazing looking food. I decided to try a little bit of everything rather than order one thing. Everything that I tried was so good, my favourite dish was the scrambled egg with Salmon. I don't usually eat Salmon but I really wanted to try it and it was lovely. You could tell the Salmon was really fresh and good quality and it was a great portion size. I also tried the Sausage Ciabatta which was really tasty and the Avocado on toast.
They also offer an Italian full breakfast which would be perfect for those sunday morning hangovers. I tried the bacon and the beans and they were both really tasty. I think i'd order the full breakfast next time I go for Brunch as I really enjoyed everything I tried.
I didn't try any of the Bagels but they looked amazing so i'd love to give them a try aswell, they offer Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil, Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese and The Elvis Presley, Peanut Butter and Banana which sounds SO GOOD!
I also had Peach Bellini which was really good aswell as my fresh orange juice, They offer a huge selection of smoothies and juices which all sound amazing and looked very impressive.
Overall I was so impressed with Bardolino, it really ticked all of my boxes. I loved that it was casual, you could drop in for lunch in your jeans and you won't feel out of place. It has a very relaxed vibe however they also have stations where you can plug in your laptop so you could pop in for a coffee and read your emails. The prices were so affordable for both the brunch menu and the main menu. I love the Decor! The lights, the chairs even the tiles were gorgeous!
It's family friendly too, they actually have a massive table where your family can all sit together and chat over brunch or you could pop by with work colleagues for a quick bite to eat at lunch. They also cater for people with food allergies or intolerance's so let them know when your ordering as they offer lots of alternatives and are so accommodating.
Check out the Bardolino menu on their website and be sure to book a table online too as I think this place is going to be so popular. It's in a great location, they have a great menu and lovely staff so be sure to check them out!
* My review is honest and my own words. I was invited to try the food however I have not been paid for this blog post
