Bombetta is originally from the farming communities of Puglia where the land was devoted to olive groves, and room to grow trees for firewood was scarce. As fuel was precious, farm workers would head to the local butcher and feast on Bombetta from his communal oven.

This meat would often be rolled up into a little bundle and contain bits of cheese or be held together by cured meat. A delicious food and a tradition based on community, eating and sharing together was born. And now it's here...

    The food was amazing as was the service. A birthday candle in the tiramisu was a lovely touch. I would highly recommend Bombetta and would be keen to try out the two sister restaurants.

    We had a whistle stop visit to Bombetta, as there was about to be a Tube strike and had to dash. But we will definitely pay another visit soon

    Really cute and quirky place, the food is amazing. I don’t think the service and price of food match up though. The restaurant was pretty much empty, but the service was slow and not great. Also the table next to us bought their dog, which was big and smelled, I don’t want to spend £100 on a dinner sat inside in a restaurant next to a dog, it’s not a pub or a cafe, thought it was really bad. Not sure I would go back.

    One of my favourite local restaurants! Took my parents here for the first time on Mother’s day and they loved every element of the experience, described it as a mini holiday experience. Food, service, ambience, wine, everything was 11/10! A big thank you to all the staff, our waiter and the Chef especially on this fantastic experience.

    Nice quiet lable by window. Waiter's very pleasant and helpfull with suggestions from their menu (with very freindly interaction) Food very enjoyable, especially the Bombetta's' Could not finish everything, so we received a beautiful 'doggy bag' in the shape of a silver basket to take home. All in all, a very enjoyable meal out. Have been their before and will come again.
