Pizza options in East Greenwich are somewhat limited so I was quite excited to hear that our newest independent pizzeria Bianco 43 were expanding into my bit of Greenwich. Bianco 43 opened on Greenwich Church Street last year and seems to do a good trade, hopefully beating Pizza Express for the best pizzeria in central Greenwich!
Bianco 43 Delivery opened on Lassell Street the Monday just gone and we ordered dinner from them on Friday night. I wanted to order soon after their opening to see what the delivery service would be like on their first weekend night.
We ordered at 8.30pm and the food arrived at 9.25pm, we were told to expect a 45 minute wait so I was a little disappointed about the long wait in comparison to other other takeaways locally. However, I have heard that they only have one delivery driver at moment so I guess a long wait is to be expected until the takeaway is more established.
Arancini, fried rice balls filled with minced meat, tomato sauce and mozzarella, £2.90
Focaccia garlic bread, £4.90
Please hold pizza flat.
4 Stagioni, tomatoes sauce, artichokes, cooked ham, sausages and mozzarella, £10.90
So, was the food hot on arrival? Not really, warm would be a better description. But, all the flavours were good and the food is miles better than any Dominos/Pizza Go Go takeaway so this is easily improved with quicker delivery.
The takeaway menu is different and varied from your bog standard pizza menu, I had never heard of arancini before but it was pretty good and padded out the meal nicely. The toppings and the chunky pieces of mozzarella were lovely and it was nice to have a well seasoned garlic bread with actual chunks of garlic on it.
We spent 18.70 in total and if we had just got a 12″ pizza it would have only been £10.90, much cheaper than a local rival.
Bianco 43 Delivery is a welcome addition to the local area and I look forward to our next order, but we will collect this time, not just to speed up delivery, but to also see the wood fired oven and our pizza being made.
Here’s hoping Bianco 43 Delivery is a permanent East Greenwich fixture.
