Mozzarella and More, located on the King’s Road in London is a great place to stop for coffee, breakfast, lunch or dinner. Owned by a group of Sicilian foodies and run by Antonio from Naples, it offers authentic, homemade Italian food served in a cosy and welcoming environment.
As I walked in on a wet lunchtime, it felt warm and inviting with the delicious smells of cooking lingering in the air.
The menu offers a wide range of choice, with small nibbles, sharing plates, and a daily seasonal choice of fish and meat on offer.
So much of the food here is homemade; the focaccia and ciabatta, burrata, mozzarella and ricotta, the sausages and all desserts and cakes, made by Valentina, one of the owners.
I started with the homemade burrata, which was served with warm caponata filled with carrot, pine nuts and raisins. It was a very tasty, generously portioned and priced at ¬£9.80. To drink, the Sicilian Leone d’Almerita 2011 was a very light, floral and refreshing.
Next on offer were Mozzarella and More’s homemade pork, pistachio and fennel sausages, which were beautifully flavoured and chunky in texture. I finished with a delicious fillet steak served with parmesan and shaved black truffle at ¬£28 which was excellent. The aged parmesan and slivers of truffle complimented the steak very nicely indeed.
Not only is Mozzarella and More a great place to visit for a meal, it offers a trattoria style service with takeaway dishes offered and catering available for events.
Mozzarella and More is highly recommended and dining there is a generous, welcoming and authentic experience.
