Last week we visited Saporito – just a couple of minutes walk from Marylebone Station and Baker Street on Melcombe Street, NW1.
The menu is not extensive, but what we experienced was excellent.
First the ham and mushroom pizza – it felt authentically homemade – they can also be be ordered to take away if you live nearby! The pesto tagliatelle was fresh, flavoursome and particularly tasty, along with a side of fried Zucchini. We had room just to split a tiramisu – it was only lunchtime! Their coffee is great and also available to take away – a literally refreshing alternative to the nearby chains.
The interior is beautifully done – clean, modern, and sleek and the vibe relaxed without being quiet.
The lovely, very attentive staff seemed to have a rapport with some of the customers who, obviously impressed by Saporito, frequent it. Amongst the clientele were business women and men, students, and couples of various ages – the full range of which is rarely in one restaurant at once, even in London. All in all, we were very impressed, and it appears that everyone else is equally charmed by Saporito and its delicious food.
An absolute definite for those looking for a lunchtime break from work and an authentic Italian experience.
