The Italian Fish Club, Bold Street Liverpool

The Italian Fish Club is a small restaurant in Liverpool city centre that combines Italian seafood with British fish and chips in a really excellent way, reflecting owner Rosario Crolla’s family move from Italy to Liverpool via Glasgow. There is a pleasant, fun feel to the restaurant that is created by the friendly staff and bright colourful interior. There were lots of little touches that stood out, my favourite was the paper chip packets on the plates that the fish and chips came on.
The menu is fish laden with has good looking Italian style fish dishes, and an excellent range of fish and chips. There are even 3 non fish options including one for veggies. There is a philosophy of simple fresh food cooked well which really shines through in the quality of the dishes.
I had Pollock and chips which was a good (and sustainable) change from Cod, the fish was really well cooked with fairly light batter. I don’t really love the towering of chips as it often leaves me feeling short changed but this was not a problem with a real skyscraper of excellent thick chips.
The wife had fritto mixte an exciting mix of lightly battered fish (calamari, baby octopus, salmon, pollock and prawns) with a tower of chips. It is not often that I have a meal that is as tasty as mine was but still wish that I had made another menu choice. This was definitely one of them, the fritto mixte was really good with perfectly cooked fish pieces.
The Linguine with Vongole came in a giant fish shaped pasta bowl which was fun, reflecting the character of the restaurant.
