Service and Story
The Bianco43 team are friendly and authentic. The founders Massimo and Fabrizio moved to the UK to pursue their dream of opening a restaurant. Born in Rome and Naples respectively, Fabrizio having worked at his father’s cheese factory supplying top restaurants around the world with buffalo mozzarella from Aversa.
Diners step into the restaurant off Blackheath high street and into a lively and welcoming hubbub of family and friends enjoying fresh Italian food in a relaxing nautical-themed setting.
Bianco43 offers a varied and generous selection of finely selected Italian ingredients and dishes. The menu is unconventional, shared via the ‘Bianco Pizzeria Ristorante’ newspaper and hosts a selection of Stuzzichini (appetisers) Antipasti (Polpo Fritto (fried octopus), Calamari, Tartare Di Manzo (beef tartare) Brushette and Fritti (Croquettes, Arancine and more) and the main courses ‘Primi Piatti’ are a selection of meat, fish, Pizze, Calzoni, salads and sides.
To start, my dining partner and I dived into a juicy and creamy Caprese Di Mozzarella Di Bufala and a fine selection of Italian cured meats Tagliere Del Contandino. For the main course, I enjoyed the Tagliata Di Manzo Con Verdure – cooked medium-rare along with a selection of grilled vegetables – perfect for me as a gluten-free and FODMAP option, my partner enjoyed a Pizze Gourmet. There was a hint of plate envy, the course of steak and side of vegetables was very generous – a great selection of well presented, fresh, healthy tasting food.
Italian regional wines are served alongside a list of beers, spirits, aperitifs and cocktails. We paired our Stuzzichini and Antipasti with a refreshing classic Aperol Spritz while the Angelo Montepulciano D’Abruzzo 2016 offered a full-bodied depth of a red wine with masses of black cherry and Montepulciano spice, delicious.
