Sat on St. Albans Road in Watford, just north of London and a mere stone’s throw away from the picturesque Cassiobury Park, Vanchino’s is a delightful little eatery that provides locals and visitors to the area with all manners of tantalising Italian fare.
All of the dishes served on the Vanchino’s a la carte menu are available to tastecard members at a fantastic discount when they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival, leaving plenty in the wallet for a tipple or two from the well-stocked bar.
Beginning with one of the sumptuous starters, where a scrumptious collection of calamari sit alongside a glorious sweet chilli sauce accompanied chicken number, and where the divine pescare platter of gambero, white bait and poached salmon fillet is one of a number of fabulous sharing options, diners can consider their appetite thoroughly whetted for any of the mouth-watering mains to come.
When it comes to the larger plates, the usual Italian staples of the pasta, alforno and pizza take centre stage through the likes of the delectable Greek Feta cheese, caramelised onion confit and cooked spinach adorned Sultanova, the gratifying Carbonara pasta and the traditional favourite that is the Lasagne. Working alongside such, there are also a host of grill, burger and salad choices on show, such as the tender house burger, topped with Cheddar cheese, thick cut bacon and vine tomatoes, the succulent sirloin steak, and the refreshing superfood salad, that help to make for a selection that is fit to meet the needs of many an appetite.
Be it for a pleasant evening repast with the family, a catch up with some close friends, or an intimate meal with that special someone, Vanchino’s offers a warm welcome to all.
