Description: A young Italian transforms old English greasy spoon into the greatest traditional Italian Trattoria in MaryleboneOwner and manager Jessica Colli a young business woman from the island of Sicily, wasn’t afraid to take up the challenge to transform Blandford’s Café after 40 years of very little change. Jessica loves authentic & traditional Italian food so she went on and decides to open her own Restaurant where she committed to herself to deliver nothing less. Blandford’s café is now a relax diner with a festive and family atmosphere open every day from 7am till 6pm, offering the greatest variety of traditional Italian dishes ranging from home-made lasagne to eggplant parmigiana and the best crispy pizza in the area, as well as freshly cooked meat items basted with the authentic Italian seasonings. Jessica want to make sure you still get the best fresh cooked English breakfasts accompanied by traditional English breakfast tea, if you are a fun of the Italian espresso or Cappuccino the choice for the new owner was simple “Illy coffee”, a brand known as the master of Italian espresso bland. A wide selection of pastries, brioche and fresh pressed juices are available, and if you fancy all that as take away Blandford’s café will organise that for you.If you want to enjoy these Italian specialities with a bottle of wine, you can bring your own with a small charge of a 3 pound.Jessica challenges you to think that Blandford's café is not just another Italian restaurant, so please go along and she and her team will prove you wrong! The young Italian that loves what she does!

“Family run and good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

They work very hard at making one feel like family. I live in the neighborhood and pop by to enjoy a pastry and coffee. Once or twice a month breakfast or lunch. Good food and good prices. Excellent coffee. Ask Jessica whats on special and you'll get a good tip.
