After a successful debut in 2013, The Cicchetti Trail returns with new restaurants for 2014. Visit six of the best Italian restaurants for cicchetti (Italian ‘tapas’) and drinks in one day, guided around town by your unique LRF Cicchetti Trail passport.
Venues: Mele e Pere, The House of Peroni, La Polentaria, Café Caldesi, Snowflake Gelato and Augustus Harris.
Start your tour at 12noon at the first restaurant in your passport and go at your own pace until 6pm.
Those who have booked late and not received a passport, please pick up a passport from Mele e Pere - the Cicchetti Trail ticketing hub.
Each passport holder is able to redeem one dish and one drink at each restaurant where you will have your passport stamped.
Please make the restaurant aware you are taking part in the London Restaurant festival on arrival.
This tour does involve walking between each restaurant; we aim for restaurants to be no more than 20 minutes walk from each other.
Please note: The House of Peroni restaurant is on the 3rd floor.
About Peroni Nastro Azzurro
Peroni Nastro Azzurro has been brewed to the same unique recipe since 1963. Created by blending a proprietary variety of Italian maize ‘Nostrano Peroni’ grown near Bergamo in northern Italy, with 2-row spring barley and delicate hops, to create the unmistakably crisp, refreshing taste of Peroni Nastro Azzurro that we still enjoy today.
About Peroni Nastro Azzurro Piccola
Piccola is the very first new bottle innovation from Peroni Nastro Azzurro. Created for those special nights where style, taste and enjoyment are paramount, Piccola provides the perfect bottle to stand out in a crowd or as the perfect accompaniment for aperitivo. Piccola is exclusively available to enjoy at the best bars and restaurants in London and key cities across the UK.
About Parma Ham
Parma Ham is a Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) product, meaning that it can only be produced and cured in the traditional production area near Parma, a northern town in the Emilia Romagna region of Italy. The drying process that Parma Ham goes through creates a ham that is 100% natural, low in fat content, with many mineral salts, vitamins, antioxidants and easily digestible proteins. Parma Ham is also highly versatile and makes a great addition to appetisers, pasta dishes, salads, sandwiches and entrées.
The unique, sweet taste of Parma Ham is dependent on this traditional production process passed down from Roman times, carefully controlled by the Consorzio del Prosciutto di Parma. There are over 150 Parma Ham producers in Italy who continue to practice these methods.

About Parmigiano Reggiano
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, the only Parmesan, is one of the world’s oldest and richest cheeses - still produced today as it was nine centuries ago. Totally natural - it’s the only cheese that has such an extensive maturation which improves the nutrition, aroma and taste. As well as having fantastic nutritional qualities, Parmigiano Reggiano is easy to digest and is high in calcium. It takes 16 litres of milk to produce one kilogram of cheese!
Parmigiano Reggiano cheese is a PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) product which is carefully controlled by the Consorzio del Formaggio Parmigiano Reggiano. This mark ensures that Parmigiano Reggiano can only be produced in designated areas of Parma, Reggio Emilia, Modena, Bologna to the west of the Reno River and Mantua to the east of the Po River.
