Back in April celebrity chef Marco Pierre White announced plans for a new ‘ultra-casual’ dining concept, Bardolino Pizzeria Bellini and Espresso bar.
As the name suggests, Bardolino dishes out a stunning selection of Italian delicacies, freshly ground coffee and Bellinis.
A far cry from Marco’s Steakhouse & Grill, Bardolino is the ultimate chill-out spot. Whether you want to pop in for a coffee, head out for a lunch with the girls or hold a business meeting, it’s a perfect place to kick back and relax in.
Located in The Cube right next to the canal you almost forget that you’re sat in the centre of one of Birmingham’s most popular areas. If you’re looking to escape the hustle and bustle of The Mailbox but don’t fancy straying too far away, Bardolino is perfect.
Named after Marco’s mother’s birthplace, Bardolino is a refreshing addition to the city. Arriving is like stepping into a little piece of Italy. Decorative tiles, stylish lighting and wooden tables finished with mismatched furniture and fresh basil plants create the perfect laid-back dining area. And if the weather’s being kind there’s even outdoor seating, so you can sit back, enjoy your Bellini and watch the world go by.
There are tables for large groups, a window seating area with plug outlets – perfect for catching up with work whilst sipping on a freshly made coffee and seating perfect for a date night. Plus, the relaxed atmosphere means you never feel rushed and can make the most of your meal.
When it comes down to the menu Bardolino has everything covered. The breakfast menu has a great choice of delicious options. From warm pastries to cooked breakfasts, and our personal favourite – the crisp pancetta and crushed avocado on sourdough toast, washed down with a latte and fresh juice.
The evening menu too offers a great variety of Italian cuisine. Fresh stone baked pizzas, salads, traditional pasta dishes and sharing platters all have a place on the menu at very reasonable prices. Eating at Bardolino won’t break the bank; main courses are priced between £7.50 – £13.50, sides between £3 – £4.25 and deserts starting at £4.50.
One of the great things about Bardolino is what the designers have achieved with the space. As well as the restaurant, which is run by a dedicated and friendly team, the venue will soon be opening its meeting room.
Neutrally decorated and with space to hold around 200 customers, the former reception of the Club & Spa has been transformed into an ideal venue for wedding receptions, business conferences and events.
Bardolino is also a fantastic addition for the Club & Spa users. The new reception links straight up to the restaurant and the healthy menu choices are great for refuelling after a gym session.
Operated under Black & White Hospitality Business, the concepts target is simple; to deliver fresh, uncomplicated and authentic food promptly whilst maintaining a relaxed and casual atmosphere.
There’s no doubt that Bardolino will be a success, White and his team have certainly hit the nail on the head when it comes to creating a new relaxed dining experience in Birmingham.
