Combining genuine Italian service with the convenience of a chain, Tony Macaroni offers a reliable choice for a meal in the West End.
A trusted choice for families, groups and couples seeking no-fuss Italian cooking, Tony Macaroni’s small Scottish chain is a tried and tested option. There are over 20 starter options, double that for mains plus pizzas, bread and a mozzarella bar – it is an eye-boggling, somewhat overwhelming menu. Dishes arrive in quick succession from the busy kitchen, the stretched waiting team struggling at times, though never losing their smiles. Parmigiana di melanzane is a tasty aubergine dish layered with tomato sugo, little bursts of basil and pungent parmesan dotted throughout. Focaccia formaggio caprino is huge and crisp, scattered with creamy goat’s cheese, sweet caramelised onions and a peppery finish from rocket piled high on top. Linguine allo scoglio is excellent, fresh with king prawns, mussels, clams and squid bound in a delicate white wine sauce – it may be the star of the show. Having bought over Nardini’s some time ago, ice-cream sundaes are a speciality – try the raspberry snowball delight, crammed with mini snowballs, raspberry sauce, whipped cream, wafers, chocolate curls and Nardini’s vanilla and strawberry ice-cream – delicious for anyone with a super sweet tooth.
