LONDON, May 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Ballarò is an Italian restaurant specialized in Sicilian cuisine, that opened in December in Twickenham, London. Their dishes are created using only the finest, freshest, seasonal ingredients and can be enjoyed in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There's a beautiful real wood burning oven in the main dinning room where you can see the chefs in action and they boast an extensive Sicilian wine list to pair with anything you choose.
A cornucopia of classic pizza and pasta dishes adorn the menu, as is to be expected from an Italian restaurant, yet there are also some truly irresistible main courses also available that showcase some of the lesser known delights from the cuisine. Particularly merit worthy meals include the eclectic Fritto misto, a mix of deep fried fish complete with marinated artichokes and homemade tartar sauce, and the heavenly Coniglio con cavolo nero e scamorza, oven baked rabbit wrapped in Parma ham, filled with smoked cheese and sage served with black cabbage and fennel seeds.
