Lardo

Stripped back and with a Berlin feel to it,  Lardo works its magic in Hackney Central. Cured meats and pizzas are the order of the day, with small plates such as the scallop carpaccio and arancini balls plumping things up. Relaxed and informal, they’ve managed to create somewhere that feels homely yet fresh. Admittedly I’m a sucker for industrial styled spaces, especially restaurants, so maybe I am slightly biased but all things considered, I couldn’t think of a better setting so it’s just as well the food matched the style. The pizzas were amazing, the small dishes a little on the small side but interesting and tasty nonetheless and the cured meats exceptional. / Firas
