GinoD’Acampo – yes, that Gino from the telly! – has his taken his first foray into the world of London eating with the launch of My Pasta Bar. The takeaway joint on Fleet street (more sites are planned next year) is open from 7am to 5pm, hooking you up with coffee and pastries in the morning and pasta dishes at lunchtime.
We popped along last week to check it out and tried Fettuccine Polpette – meatballs, onions, fresh basil and tomato sauce – and Sedanini Boscalola – crispy pancetta, porcini mushrooms, semi-dried cherry tomatoes and béchamel sauce – both of which were super tasty. The key thing here is that the pasta is made freshly for you in a matter of minutes rather than scraped out of a tray and zapped in the microwave, so big points there.
There’s all sorts of other treats on offer too including sandwiches, soups, salads and tasty little focaccia breads with a range of toppings. If you’re looking for a delicious carb-fest at lunch time then Gino’s your man.
