Opposite the famous Bournemouth Pavilion and Lower Gardens, Al Calamaro is a stylish yet casual setting for gourmet Italian recipes. The interior has a real continental feel to it, with the extensive wine selection lining the walls, and with comfy brown sofas at the front of the restaurant to sit back and enjoy a cocktail with friends.
The Al Calamaro menu starts off with traditional flavours, ranging from classic antipasti of cured Italian meats, to wonderfully simple bruschetta. Pasta dishes include linguine with homemade red pesto and cream, while the pizza range is made with fresh, hand-tossed dough, and topped with ingredients like parma ham, mozzarella and fresh basil. There are also gourmet salads, and fresh seafood recipes like pan-fried fillets of sea bass served on a bed of creamy saffron risotto.
Classic Italian desserts are a must at Al Calamaro in Bournemouth, and include the homemade tiramisu, along with a range of gelati, sorbet, and the profiteroles covered with white chocolate cream. The wine selection boasts a great selection of vintages from across Italy, and there are also classic cocktails mixed up at the bar too.
Also offering a dedicated kids' menu, Al Calamaro is a versatile eatery that offers up classic tastes of Italy. The famous Bournemouth Pier is only a 5-minute walk away.
