Situated riverside at London Bridge is the stunning new neighbourhood bar and restaurant, Tavolino; a contemporary yet casual spot to enjoy classic Italian dishes and drinks whilst taking in impressive views over City Hall, Tower Bridge and the Thames itself.
Designed by Fettle—the L.A- and London-based design studio responsible for the glamorous interiors at Chucs, Kensington and The Draycott, Los Angeles—Tavolino draws inspiration from Milanese coffee bars and traditional Florentine trattorias; the space featuring quintessentially Italian finishes including a commissioned mural that runs along the staircase, a neon sign found hanging above the bar, and Italian art deco signage and branding, alongside bespoke furniture and whimsical elements intended to add a layer of fun to the restaurant.
From the elegant dark timber bar with aged bronze countertop and antique mirror back counter, that greets guests at the entrance, to banquettes upholstered in oxblood leather that wrap around the space, cascading greenery and additional seating that includes traditional bentwood dining chairs with a pink mohair pad and custom-made banquettes upholstered in an aged green leather, Tavolino offers both Londoners and its visitors the opportunity to dine and drink in classical surrounds with multiple layers of attention to the finest of details.
With Louis Korovilas heading up the kitchen and a menu consisting of small and larger plates—including burrata, Devon crab, Sicilian red prawn bucatini with datterini tomatoes, zucchini fritti and more—this London Bridge local is a fine spot to sit back and enjoy the splendour of the capital’s finest sights fused with decadent style and lip-smacking Mediterranean cuisine. A win, win, win situation.
