Lunch at Incanto

22 Mar

Incanto in Harrow has recently become my favourite restaurant and on our first Saturday together, and not working in what feels like ages, it felt like the perfect way for Mr Bitter and I to treat ourselves.

From the second you walk in here you can’t help but  enjoy yourself. From the friendly welcome to the light and airy dining room as soon as we sat down we began to relax.

Incanto offers a fixed price menu for lunch Tuesday- Saturday and dinner Tuesday- Friday. They also offer a full ala carte menu and 2 tasting menus. The fixed price at lunch is just £17.95 for 2 courses or £19.95 for 3 and at dinner that rises to just £19.95 and £23.95 respectively. But good value is no good without good food and I have to say that fortunately Incanto excel themselves at food and it is then you realise just how good the prices are.

Today we ate:

3 varieties of delicious bread served with olive oil which I washed down with a very tasty Rhubarb Bellini plus an amuse bouche of asparagus foam with polenta chips

We then both had an incredible risotto which managed to combine fresh spring flavours (it was packed with of peas and spring greens) with intense creaminess.

My main course was goats cheese ravioli, whilst Mr Bitter had chicken breast. By now we vere too busy raving over the food to remember to take a photo.

For desert I had their delicious, and beautiful, olive oil cake served with rhubarb (god I love rhubarb and no matter what else on the menu tempts me I just can’t seem to resist it) and rhubarb and custard ice-cream. The cake was warm and moist- on the cake side of a nice light brioche and not too sweet or dense. In fact it was light as air and combined nicely with all its accompaniments. Mr Bitter had a variety of home made ice-creams including a chocolate one whose light appearance belied just how strong a chocolate flavour it held.

Fully satiated I finished with a coffee and sad to say we were just too full to enjoy the incredible petit fours which came out at the end (ok we each found room for one of the little custard filled cream puffs)

I really can’t urge you enough to visit Incanto. The food is extraordinary, the servce wonderful and the surroundings beautiful. I can’t wait to return.
