We headed to Grappa last night to celebrate the birthday of my lovely friend Ruth.
This is a really great bar, yet also boasts a tasty selection of Italian nibbles and some very good pizzas, and between our group we sampled most of the menu!
Having got there a bit early, Ian and I had a drink and I decided to treat myself to one of my favourite cocktails – The Bramble. This lovely combination of gin, blackberry liquor and lemon juice makes for a perfect autumnal tipple.
For starters, Ian and I shared a goats cheese crostini which was generous enough between two people and got the balance of flavours and textures just right; sharp goats cheese on crunchy bread with a well-dressed salad and some basil pesto.
After a bit of a gap we got our pizzas and I have to say they were worth the wait! I opted for pesto, mozzarella, gorgonzola, pine nuts, shaved onion and parmesan and as you can see it looked pretty tasty!
It was clear from looking down our table that they don’t scrimp on their toppings and every pizza was loaded with tasty ingredients.
The staff were lovely here, and even did a few of us doggy bags when we couldn’t finish our pizzas.
I eat here quite regularly and haven’t yet had a pizza I haven’t enjoyed. They offer a 2 for 1 deal through the week which makes it an even more inviting option!
