A Neighbourhood Italian Bar & Restaurant

About us

A neighbourhood Italian bar and restaurant on the river at London Bridge, Tavolino (‘small table’) serves simple, high quality dishes prepared with the best produce from across Italy and the U.K.

Enjoy a carefully sourced wine list and delicious cocktails with your meal, or linger over a negroni and bombolini at Bar Aperitivo as the sun sets on an unparalleled view of London’s iconic skyline, underlined by the tidal Thames.

As the nights draw in, our riverside terrace remains open to welcome groups of friends and family up to 6, no matter how many households you’re from. Our new autumnal menu is reason enough to leave the house. or join us for drink at Bar Aperitivo between 4pm and 6pm and the bombolini’s on us. We’re still here, we’re still open and we’re committed to providing a safe and relaxed space for you to enjoy. Follow us @TavolinoKitchen or sign up to our newsletter for the latest.

Restaurant

From our finocchiona, made by the Gelli family butchers since 1955 – to our seven year aged Aggazzotti balsamic vinegar from Modena, many of our producers have been perfecting their offering for generations.

We make the most of every ingredient, from handmade bread with taggiasche black olives and 24-month aged parmesan to our home-made ice creams with gianduja from Piedmont and Bronte pistachios from Sicily. Click here to view all of our menus.

Bar Aperitivo

Bar Aperitivo invites you to enjoy a great coffee while you catch up on the morning’s news or relax after work over a glass of wine and some panelle chips.

Our wine list is an adventure through Italy’s lesser known vineyards with a few familiar touchpoints along the way, and our cocktails reach far beyond the typical Italian favourites; discover sgroppino ai trei agrumi, aperitivo della casa with americano rosso, and spritz del mare. The bar is open.

An affordable, crowd pleasing Italian place with a view that will wow out-of-towners and grumpy Londoners alike.

Conde Nast Traveller

Tavolino’s Italian menu spotlights the best produce from the UK and Italy, as well as ingredients by niche and speciality suppliers.

Quintessentially

If you’ve got no room for dessert then instead thank Mother Eve for the frozen espresso martinis, a genius invention, heatwave or not. It’s like they know exactly what I want before I’ve even thought of it myself.

The Telegraph

Thames-side Tavolino where the terrace hums: over icy Negronis and plates of fresh pasta, take in the view of Tower Bridge, the Shard and City Hall.

The Evening Standard

On a summer’s evening, sitting outside on the expansive terrace feels akin to being on holiday, framing London at its best as the sun sets over the river. Views aside, the menu is so enticing you’ll find yourself dithering over what to order. The pasta options are bountiful, but we’d recommend the silk handkerchiefs, with walnut butter and confit Burford Brown yolk. Wash it down with Tavolino’s take on a classic limoncello.

Harper’s Bazaar

Serendipitously opened at a time when most of us feel most comfortable eating outdoors, Tavolino boasts one of the best al fresco dining views in London. The river-side Italian is unpretentious and unfussy, yet with an elevated menu using some of the finest Italian and local produce on offer

Tatler

Tavolino - a just launched Italian place in London Bridge - which has amazing river views.

Time Out

The Italian restaurant has a prime view of Tower Bridge, making it an idyllic setting for an al fresco meal. We ordered all the homemade fresh pasta dishes and there were empty plates all around. The burrata and grilled zucchini scarce melts in your mouth.

Hello! Magazine

he huge terrace overlooking Tower Bridge, might be our favourite place to eat Cacio E Pepe. A negroni or two won’t hurt either.

The Infatuation

Tavolino is perfect for a casual date night or a small birthday dinner with friends. Definitely a restaurant worth keeping in your back pocket when looking for somewhere relaxed, relatively affordable with the bonus of a great riverside view.
