For the authentic Italian dining experience with the relaxed ambiance to match, there’s no better pick for foodies looking to dine out in London than Onik. Based in Ealing, the charming indie eatery offers many good reasons to venture out to the outer boroughs with their stone-baked pizzas, regional specialities and more.
Tucked away on Castle Hill Parade between a row of shops and businesses, Onik could easily be overlooked, but that would be grave mistake for any Italian food afficionado. The eatery is more than ideal for a casual meal with friends and is just down the road from the West Ealing train station. It’s also a wise pick for visitors looking for relaxing places to eat in London after visiting Wapole Park or Pitzhanger Manor Gallery with the family.
The neighbourhood eatery wouldn’t look out of place along a windy Italian street. High ceilings and large windows make it feel bright and airy, and like many restaurants in London, its contemporary style is also smart enough for a date. Families will also appreciate their laidback atmosphere, which makes it a suitable for a meal with the little ones.
As Italian restaurants go, Onik offers one of the best menus for carnivores. They’ll find a range of seasonal meat and fish dishes, including regional specialities that have included saltimbocca, Venezian-style liver and onions and grilled chicken with porcini mushrooms. Their pizzas are also a wise choice and they also serve a range of hearty favourites such as lasagne, risotto and gnocchi.
With its traditional dishes, friendly staff and relaxed atmopshere, Onik is a must for any Italian food lover. Any occasion will be even more of a treat for tastecard members who can look forward to exclusive restaurant savings when they call to book ahead and present their cards upon arrival. It’s a good chance to treat themselves to a bottle of wine, another dish to share or antipasti.
Please note: You must book in advance and mention the tastecard to be entitled to the discount.
