Louis Korovilas, the former head chef of Bancone, finally launched this Italian restaurant in London Bridge in July 2020 after the planned Easter opening was delayed by lockdown.
Harden's survey result
“Given its location, with a fantastic view of Tower Bridge” – not to mention a big outside terrace – “you would expect this to be a tourist trap”, but reports are upbeat on this large, “classy-feeling” two-floor newcomer in the More London development by City Hall (which opened in July 2020 on the site that was formerly a Strada). Chef Louis Korovilas previously headed up the kitchen at Bancone, making pasta the best choice here from the fairly traditional Italian menu. Early reports suggest it’s proving a very worthwhile addition – “not perhaps worth a trip, but – if you are in the area – well worth a visit”.
For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

Tavolino Restaurant Diner Reviews
"We went for lunch on a weekday. The food has sufficient interest but the real draw is the panoramic view from HMS Belfast to Tower Bridge. Service was efficient enough. I’d have preferred not to have had the background music, given the number of people there. "
"Wonderful location: outdoor terrace and great views from the second floor of the restaurant. Rather noisy."
"Well cooked fish, and good ice cream. A bit perfunctory but does the job."
