Pane Cunzato is a charming little Sicilian joint in central London. Well loved by locals and tourists alike, Pane Cunzato, meaning ‘seasoned bread’ in Italian, serve up this traditional dish to Londoners in a variety of styles. As all of the tastiest dishes seem to be, pane cunzato started out as a dish invented by the working classes in Sicily, who used the local ingredients and precious leftovers in order to create something tasty, filling and inexpensive. As it frequently happens with traditional Italian cuisine, the old working class creations became the new gourmet.
Here, you can order your pane cunzato Aeolian style; crunchy bread with cold ingredients on top, or classic Sicilian style, where the crunchy bread is filled with ingredients and then baked. We love the ‘classico’ - Sicilian style filled with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, anchovies and black pepper, but the gnocchi listed on their limited pasta menu is also to die for - if you have the room.
Great for a late lunch on a sunny afternoon, the perfect hangover cure, as well as a chic place to have a nice dinner in a personal, inviting atmosphere, Pane Cunzato London is a must for every visitor to Holborn and Bloomsbury. Just make sure you reserve your table with DiscoEat before you go!
