Now Open

The chef responsible for that egg yolk, Instagram-famous plate of pasta at Bacone has just announced he's flying solo - and he's bringing the signature dish with him. Louis Korovilas is opening Tavolino, with pastry chef Taylor Sessegnon-Shakespeare by his side, bringing all-day dining to a two-storey space in London Bridge.

Taking over a former Strada, the new Italian restaurant will enjoy views over the river, with floor-to-ceiling windows, alongside a 70-seater terrace. While the launch was delayed due to Covid-19, the team have been working hard to source family-run Italian businesses and high quality ingredients to ensure the menu is as authentic as possible.

So what's up for grabs? As mentioned previously, Korovilas' signature silky ribbons of pasta with a walnut sauce and egg yolk will be launched at the new site, alongside staples such as pizza and meat dishes; think beef short rib with polenta, fried mussels, and hand-rolled potato gnocchi. Sessegnon-Shakespeare will be starting our day with fresh bread baked daily, including honeyed garlic focaccia.
