Led by Peppe & Angelo Corsaro, Fish & Bubbles promises a unique dining experience capturing the essence of life at an Italian seaside. Striking the very best deals with fishermen, Fish & Bubbles offers value-led dining and a genuine taste of Italian culture transporting you to the beachside tavernas of Sicily, Puglia, Sardinia and the Amalfi coast with fresh, vibrant and flavoursome dishes.

It’s all about laidback lunches and light bites to-go by day with a quick-service kiosk ensuring a speedy process for time-poor locals, eat-in or takeaway. By evening it’s a more leisurely affair, the venue transforms into an intimate, relaxed aperitivo bar, order from your phone when ready and the team will deliver it to your table.

The unique-to-London “panino di mare” menu features a traditional freshly baked Italian rosetta bun generously stuffed with impeccably sourced fish and seafood fillings based on authentic dishes.  Get your hands around the Polp Fiction – slow-cooked octopus in a rustic Apulian tomato & basil sauce, fried crisps, nduja and mascarpone mayo (£16.50); the Sicilian Spadino with swordfish cutlet, marinated courgettes, Apulian capocollo (pork neck), roasted pepper cream, ricotta and lemon mousse (£15); and the Tuna Turner – cacio e pepe basil cream, tuna tartare, courgette, roasted tomatoes, stracciatella and rocket (£14).

The art of the aperitivo is ingrained in Italian culture – these glorious hours are a time to meet, chat, sip on wine and cocktails whilst grazing on cicchetti. Must-tries are the generous sharing boards (£18pp min two diners):  Fritto Misto Al Metro – provides a wow moment for parties of all sizes, an impressive 1kg of fried seafood and fish is served by the metre on a long wooden board, whilst the Tagliere di Mareis  a mix of hot and cold cicchetti with the likes of tuna tartare, swordfish caponata, Sicilian panelle chickpea fritters, fish balls and a mini poké. Enjoy either of these boards with a glass of prosecco or a negroni for just £18 per person from 12pm to 7pm daily.

A selection of fritto misto, from calamari to polpette di pesce (fish balls) of the day, is also available alongside piled-high bruschetta and creative Italian takes on poké bowls – the Tuscan Sun comes with ruby-red fresh tuna tartare, garden peas, cucumber, roasted tomatoes, red pepper hummus, carrots, chilli and pearl barley (£13.95). Other dishes include a raft of crudi di mare such as salmon and tuna tartare as well as the caviar of shrimps, Gambero Rosso.

The bar team will be mixing up a range of £7 aged negronis like the House Panarea (sea salt negroni) and the Capri (with prosecco) alongside Hugo and Aperol spritzes, whilst wine lovers can peruse the exclusively Italian list featuring Italian bubbles together with reds, whites and rosé for a foodie match made in heaven.

Open daily, Fish & Bubbles is situated in one of West London’s most sought-after neighbourhoods, moments from Portobello Road and is dog-friendly (well-behaved pups only). Interiors play homage to its coastal roots with white-washed walls, exposed brickwork, natural woods, draped fishing nets and Italian ceramics.
