I heard all the hype about this place so made sure I gave it a visit. It was the second place on the list in fact, after arriving early on a Saturday morning. Having heard about the queues I wanted to get there shortly after...opening. We arrived at 11am, roughly, and queued for maybe 10mins so not too bad. The second visit, on Monday, we arrived at 2pm, smack in the middle of lunch and the queue was much worse. Maybe 25-30mins. Also noticed a couple of people skipping the queue which was annoying.
As for the panini I had the paradise first which was lovely although the pistachios were a little overpowering for my taste… still the bread was amazing and it was all still delicious. The boss was my second choice and I enjoyed it much more. The ideal would have been the mortadella ham of the paradiso in the boss panini.
My friend is a very fussy eater and went with la Beatrice. He hated it and wouldn’t come back. I don’t think this place requires a refined taste myself, so if you are a fussy just be open minded. The queues alone, should tell you all you need to know about the quality and taste.More
