This is my second go at uploading this blog after a bit of a website issue. But anyway, here’s round 2 of my review eating gluten free at The Italian Club Fish, Liverpool.
I’m a bit of a creature of habit when it comes to Liverpool – as much as I love going to new places, I usually venture towards Liverpool One by default when I arrive via Lime Street.
On a recent shopping trip, I and my mum had decided to venture up to the Georgian Quarter, to a place I’d heard some buzz about. On the way, however, we found a little Italian at the top of Bold Street – we would have missed it if we hadn’t been eying up the fairy lights at the place next door!
I love seafood, and seeing on the menu that they had gluten free pasta available, we decided to give it a go. After all, it claimed to be authentically Italian, and the Italians are pretty damn good at providing for gluten free!
I went for the Spaghettini Alle Vongole (spaghetti with clams, garlic, parsley, fresh chilli, white wine, cherry tomatoes & extra virgin olive oil). Unlike a lot of places, it was actually served with gluten free spaghetti rather than penne or fusilli – a small difference but it really changes the texture of the dish.
I’ve got to say, it was utterly incredible. I actually got a little bit emotional. There’s something about good Italian food that is just so comforting, you can almost feel the passion put into the food, and this was a perfect example. The sauce was juicy and aromatic, with just a kick of spice from the chilli, but not too much.
For dessert we have a Torta Valter, a chocolate and almond cake…I mean I’m never going to complain about chocolate am I?!
The Italian Club Fish is part of a group of restaurants, the family also own The Italian Club and The Italian Club Bakery in Liverpool, as well as Panevino in Glasgow. I’m yet to try the other Liverpool establishments, but they’re on my to-do list!
