Mamalù: Extraordinary Italian Cuisine In London

Opened only a matter of months, award-winning restaurant Mamalù has quickly attracted both locals and visitors to Earl’s Court with its charming and authentic Italian dining experience. Mamalu is the ultimate authentic Italian experience! Directly imported and certified seafood, homemade pasta, seasonal vegetables and uniquely tender dry-aged meat. These tastes will transport you on an incredible dining journey, accompanied by a professional, warm hospitality family. A feature by columnist Riccha Grrover for Asian Lite International

Whether the occasion is a leisurely weekend family lunch or an intimate dinner for two, Mamalù’s elegant, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere is synonymous with the warm hospitality that Italian culture is famous for. Showcasing an array of exceptional Italian classics, dishes are prepared using high- quality, sustainable and seasonal ingredients.

Directly from the Italian waters, they offer the freshest raw and cooked seafood, one bite will have you dreaming of Summer days living la dolce vita. Their sommelier will carefully craft the ultimate pairings from our curated list of old world wines… leaving your taste buds excited to discover more. At the heart of Mamalù’s offering is this seafood, much of it caught by certified boats along the coasts of the UK and Italy. The signature is undoubtedly the gorgeous Plateau Royal, with its medley of Mazara red prawns, Sicilian langoustines, pink prawns and plump Gillardeau and Cocollos oysters. Other delights from the raw bar include red tuna tartare with avocado & rocket and red Mazara prawn carpaccio with lemon zest, all complemented by cooked dishes of the calibre of Breton lobster and fried Mediterranean octopus with baby chicory.

That said, there is still plenty here to tempt carnivores too. Then ofcourse the Pasta, often the star of any Italian show, is directly produced daily made using their in-house pasta machine guaranteeing a softer, smoother texture and slightly richer taste. Paccheri, tagliolini, gnocchi…their Pama Parsi pasta machine does not disappoint. Not only is the quality higher thanks to their choice of prime materials, but the flavour is out of the ordinary.

Tradition is also the mainstay of the deliciously indulgent dessert menu where favourites such as home-made tiramisu and that Tuscan staple Torta della Nonna, a rustic tart made with cream and pine nuts, take centre stage.

It’s not just the food that has put Mamalù on south west London’s culinary map. The restaurant’s knowledgeable in-house sommelier delights in suggesting the perfect wine pairing from a carefully curated list of Italian and French vintages.

Looking to bring something a little different to the London dining scene, Mamalù’s owners determined to put their own distinctive twist on the traditional Italian restaurant. 

Using quirky details like the unique tiles and patterns that adorn the interior, the result is a captivating fusion of modernity and nostalgia that captures the essence of a typical brasserie reimagined for the modern era. Tucked away from the bustle of the restaurant, Mamalù offers a private dining room that can accommodate up to 18 guests. Ideal for corporate or private lunches or dinners, bespoke menus can also be arranged.

In addition, the restaurant can cater for all types of external event; clients can choose from an array of signature dishes, including Mamalù’s raw bar selection.

Mamalù is open from Tuesday to Friday, 6pm-11pm and Saturday & Sunday, 12.30pm-3pm and 6pm-11.30pm.

Mamalu with its exquisite food, impeccable service, hospitable and friendly staff, excellent drinks selection, comfortable vibe offers discerning diners a dining experience to remember! Highly Recommended!
