If cobblestone streets, silvery Vespa’s and endless blue hues sound like your kind of weekend, then a tube ride to South Kensington may just be the ticket. Cacciari’s on London’s Brompton Road does a solid job of taking your taste-buds where your eyes can merely dream of. Flavoursome dishes inspired by the roots of the Bologna region (the home of the owners) mean fresh tortellini, tagliatelle and traditional lasagna. At the core of authentic Italian cuisine, Cacciari’s home-made pasta is that melt-in-your-mouth, stuff-as-much-as-you-can-in fare. Start with one of their golden piadinas – the mozzarella and parma ham combo is soft, flaky and crunchy all at once. But be warned: servings are generous!
