The team behind Amico Bio (head chef Pasquale Amico and his two cousins) are on an admirable mission: to bring an eco-friendly restaurant concept – vegetarian, organic Italian food – to London. The restaurant is housed in a charming building in a particularly charming part of ye olde London; in fact they’re near neighbours with Smithfield, one of London’s most well-known meat markets. The dining room is quirky and cosy, featuring a glass front and a narrow fireplace. As for the food, well, London vegetarians have never been happier. Italian ingredients lend themselves well to vegetarian food – all-organic vegetables and olives from the owners’ farm near Naples dominate the menu, as well as homemade bread, a variety of pastas and vegetarian versions of the beautiful cheeses Italy is so famous for. Desserts like apple, fig and date tart or cantucci and sweet passito wine will tempt you into staying on, as will the extensive range of wines, all of which are vegetarian and organic, on offer.
