A perfectly summery place to be for some delicious Italian tapas! It was high time I checked out Petersham Nursuries at Covent Garden, and how else to do it than with dinner at one of their restaurants on the day I land in London! After a 2 week break in Asia, I was craving some Western food that wasn't extravagantly priced and I got just that here. 

Between my friend and I, we shared the following:

1. Roasted Potatoes - Hands down my favourite dish. It was a classic but done so well! The potatoes were roasted with garlic, really tasty olive oil, and rosemary, which gave them an incredible flavour and smell. As it was roasted in an iron skillet, the potatoes had such a crispy exterior and a soft and fluffy interior! 

2. Pizzette - This small pizza came with the freshest mozzarella, olives, rosemary, and courgettes. A simple combination, which really allowed us to savour the mozzarella, which was delicious. 

3. Melon & Prosciutto - A classic Italian starter, especially in the summer! The melons were so ripe and juicy, it was incredible. Paired with the prosciutto on a stick and a fresh basil leaf, it was a really refreshing way to start the meal off. 

4. Ricotta Ravioli - These came in the most decadent sage and butter sauce, which is the only way I enjoy ravioli. It was super creamy but without feeling heavy and the ricotta stuffing blended really well with it. 

The service was pretty quick, as we came for an early dinner on a weekday and the staff were very friendly. Our waitress helped us pick out our choices and was really on point with filling up our glasses of water, which was great given how warm it has been this week!
