Tish for the fish, little Pish for the quantity of Pescheria Mattiucci!
So I've been to the Pescheria Mattiucci near Portobello Road. I was excited about it and was really looking forward to eating some delicious fish!!!
And let's be honest, the fish was good and really fresh!
It's more like a tapas bar where you share the food rather than a restaurant.
We began with a mixed plate of raw fishes and prawn. We also had a Aubergine Parmigiana with prawns, a delicious squid filled with spinach, swordfish, mixed vegetables, and few other plates, we finished with the Cassata Siciliana a fresh cake made with ricotta.
The wine list it is pretty small but the wine they had was very nice. The service is good and there is a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Now after all that food you would have expected us to be rolling but instead we were starving! That's the pish of this restaurant, the portions are actually ridiculously small and the price a bit high, but worth it if you want some good fish!
So you have two options here, The first is to go there for a few bites and a glass of wine. After that you leave and enter the first chip shop you find on your way home. The second option, go there with a boyfriend who has been naughty and needs punishing... In this case please order all the menu as it's not so big and go for a double plate if necessary as you are not paying :-)
