City Pig’s analysis

Coco di mama is an Italian eatery that offers new contemporary take on Italian quick eats. It is like a posh Pret a Manager but without the “chain feel” although it does have two branches one in Fleet street and this one in – London Wall.

It offers small and large pots of cooked pasta in a variety of sauces and two special sauces changes every day.

Personally, the coffee is extremely good quality and is one of the reasons I come here. Although, its pastas are tasty, fresh and not the usual stodgy pasta – it still is not the tastiest pasta I expect it to be. The packaging and the whole contemporary design of the Coco di mama products have been cleverly designed and is attractive enough to lure city workers in.

I have been here a few times and enjoy the simple food. I urge those with big appetites to choose the bigger size pasta tubs as the small is very small. Its pastas are well cooked al la dente and sauces are not too over empowering.

It certainly is not cheap but is comparable to other eateries I have reviewed.

The croissants are worth trying here if you want to try the breakfast range. I thoroughly recommend the cappuccinos and Americano here. There were tubs of free chocolates for diners which was a nice treat as well.

At London wall, it is a very small shop, but there are a few seats for those who like to eat in. A definite must try for those wanting more than Pret and Eat but not wanting to over eat days.
