Made in Italy Wimbledon Review
After work last week on a dark and cold night I visited the Italian food paradise of Made in Italy on The Broadway in Wimbledon. When Sophie and I walked in the light was a warm candlelit yellow, it was warm and the smell of fresh herbs and the Mediterranean greeted us.
We sat down next to the bar and marveled at the beautiful decoration, talked about the amazing atmosphere and how casual yet friendly the restaurant was.
We were recommended a red wine and we were both very impressed about how sweet, strong and smooth it was. A lovely glass and there was definitely more than one while we ate! Plus at less than £5 a glass we felt we had a great deal too. It completed the food too. They really knew what to suggest based on what we ordered.

Sophie had the Bruschetta with crab and avocado cream and it was beautiful. It looked so tasty and authentically Italian. The ingredients were fresh and smelled wonderful. I ordered a garlic bread as I think a garlic bread can really tell a lot about an Italian restaurant. It was stone baked, had those lovely charcoal flecks on the base which add to the rich and genuine bread smell. It had a beautifully crispy base but soft middle and it was delightfully tearable in your hands. The garlic and butter taste came with a mix of herbs which added a lovely depth of flavour. The garlic was there but not so strong you’re going to scare your friends, a really perfect amount.
I really wish I’d taken more photos of what we had but we were so hungry and enjoyed it so much it was nice to have a meal away from technology.
We decided to share a pizza and we went for the classic Margherita. It was thin and crispy but also had lots of bumps and quirky bits which I love about this type of handmade pizza. It’s rough and ready but so authentic and perfect. The tomato was rich and had that off the vine flavour which you reminds me of the Mediterranean so much. The mozzarella was smooth and had a deep and earthy taste. Here is their pizza menu.
The proof of an amazing Italian restaurant is how they make their Margherita and based on how good that was I can’t wait to try more of their pizzas soon.
When we left we felt completely surprised to be in Wimbledon again. A quick trip to Italy to enjoy the amazing food never hurt anyone. We will definitely be visiting again.
