Little Italy

The girls and I got together last Friday to celebrate two birthdays within the group. The perfect birthday celebrations include good food and drink, so we met up after work and made our way from the City into Soho for Italian food and cocktails at Little Italy.

It’s tucked away down a quiet road in the heart of Soho, opposite Ronnie Scott’s. I’ve eyed it up each time I’ve visited Ronnie Scott’s and been dying to try it out after hearing nothing but good things. 

We arrived early and enjoyed Lychee Martini’s (yum) and prosecco at the main bar and gave the birthday girls their presents and cards, before making our way to our table upstairs.

For starter, I ordered the Oven Baked Aubergine with Mozzerella and Tomato which was delicious. I also picked at Ellise’s huge pot of fried Calamari after she’d faced defeat and couldn’t finish it! 

I opted for the scallops and mushroom risotto for main, which was nice but I couldn’t fully enjoy it as it was extremely rich. Looking back, it probably wasn’t the best choice when followed by an evening of drinking! On the other hand, I had complete food envy when Ellise’s steak arrived…

In between courses, there was a magician wandering around each table performing magic tricks. I’m such a child when it comes to magic, I love it! 

After dinner, we moved over to the bar and the tables were cleared to make room for everyone. The bar slowly filled up and by the end of the night, the dance floor was heaving. Countless Lychee Martini’s, shots and other types of cocktails I can’t remember the names of after, we decided to call it a night at around 3am and I spent the rest of the weekend recovering and feeling sorry for myself! 

A Friday well spent! Happy Birthday girlies xxx
