The “ultra-casual” restaurant is located at The Cube, Mailbox District, Birmingham.
Pizza and pasta are the star dishes.
The restaurant takes its name from the town of Marco’s mother’s birthplace, Bardolino and features an all-day express menu of authentic Italian food, coffees and Bellinis.
Speaking of the new venture, Marco said: “Bardolino represents affordable, friendly and casual dining with recognisable family favourites and classic Italian dishes".
“I truly believe that Italian food is affordable and delicious".
“Bardolino is a restaurant concept created for both discerning diners and aspirational families alike. After all, pasta is a child’s favourite food.”
Diners can expect a variety of authentic stone-baked pizzas from the Zingara with ham, mushrooms and truffle oil to the Bresaola e Mozzarella with cured beef, tomatoes and mozzarella. The menu also boasts homemade pasta dishes that have all been created using some of Italy’s finest ingredients.
