We were invited down last night, for a cheeky sneak peak and what an invite it was!
The restaurant has such a cool vibe, exposed walls, wooden & quirky. You can tell the owner Adam Giagnotti has taken the time to think about everything. Being the owner of The Olive Branch Mediterranean Bistro & Wine Bar too, as some of you may know this is one of my favourite restaurants in Worcester so this had already set the tone & high expectations, they somehow managed to exceed those!
It’s located in the centre of town, behind the olive branch, slightly up from Halifax.
Obviously it’s just takeaway to start but there is a small hidden restaurant downstairs.
We couldn’t wait to try the food, we left our dinner choice in Impasto’s more than capable hands.
First we started with the Carbonara Chips. Firstly have you ever tried carbonara on chips before?
These were sensational, there was so much depth, every chip was packed full of everything. A creamy béchamel sauce, bacon, flakes of cheese topped with crispy onions We couldn’t get enough of these.
Next we had the Prosciutto Fungi - San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, prosciutto cotto, chestnut mushrooms & mascarpone (with added wild spinach )
The base was crisp, the mozzarella melted perfectly, the wild spinach was so flavoursome, I’ve never had wild spinach before!
Finally we had the Salsiccia - San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, salsiccia, sobrasada & honey. For people like me who’s not sure on itailian words this was similar to a pepperoni pizza, with n’duja (a spicy sausage) drizzled in honey.
This was also incredible, we loved the spice but it wasn’t overpowering at all, the sweetness of the honey was so pleasant too.
Both pizzas were so light, and crispy, the dough is served thinly which we thought was perfect. Everything served was piping hot so it would travel a fair distance before being cold.
Honestly they were probably up there in the top 5 of incredible pizzas!
We cannot wait to watch this business thrive and support it!
They also make fresh homemade pasta & sauces!
Ps - sorry about my crap photos we were in the car at night
