So let me ask you a question about the tip jar. I had a little thing with the calzone guy this week . I go to drop a buck in the tip jar and just as I am about to drop it in he looks the other way. And then when I am leaving he gives me this look think thanks for nothing. I mean if they don't notice it what's the point
George Costanza (Seinfeld episode “The Calzone”)
I’m still exploring all the food options in Chiswick. My last stop was a small authentic Italian restaurant called Tarantella. Opened by three Italian chefs, Giuseppe, Francesco, and Domenico. The place is usually fully booked, so one day for a late lunch we saw our opportunity.
We got the Tarantella gnocchi and Tarantella explosiva half calzone half pizza. Pizza was ok, the calzone part with the nduja was superb, even thought that in some parts of the calzone was only dough with no filling. I will suggest cut from the middle so the nduja juices will drip all over the plate and then you can moist your pizza bread pieces into them. Pasta was traditional and with good spiciness as they use the same spicy nduja for the sauce.
Nice option, be aware as it's a small place so book in advance.
