PaninoGiusto opened its first London restaurant at Royal Exchange in the city in April. The Milanese chain have 22 restaurants spread across Italy and pride themselves on serving traditional Italian themed dishes made from quality ingredients.
On the menu you’ll find a huge selection of cured meats, we sampled the Italiano which included Parma Ham, Praga Ham, Bresaola, Mortadella with pistachio nuts and Speck. The meats were served in a whopping great big portion with olive oil (made in house) balsamic vinegar and a basket of bread. Definitely not one for the faint hearted…
We’d suggest you skip the mains and stick with the fresh meat boards paired with a glass or two of the wines, all sourced from small individually selected Italian vineyards. If you’re after a cold crisp white on a nice summers night try the good old Sauvignon Blanc. In Italy the restaurants are famous for their Panini – the clue is in the name – so if you’re a fan you might want to get down and check them out.
