An Amalfi Coast-inspired 6-course tasting menu at Six by Nico - Review

This week I had the pleasure of sampling an Amalfi Coast-inspired 6-course tasting menu at Six by Nico, which launched on the 1st of July and will be available until the 11th of August at their Fitzrovia restaurant.

Our dining experience took us on a journey through the flavours of Italy's iconic southern coastline.


Upon arrival, we were seated at a table which gave us an unobstructed view of the chefs working their magic, which was quite hypnotic. Our waiter, Aman, immediately set the tone for the evening with refreshing Aperol Spritz cocktails, a perfect aperitif to whet our appetites.  We were also given the option to swap between the regular and vegetarian menus, providing a versatile dining experience tailored to individual preferences.


Course 1: Our meal began with Parmesan Polenta Parmesan Polenta. Although it appeared simple, the taste was surprising, lovely. The creamy texture and rich Parmesan flavour set the bar for the courses to follow.


Course 2: Next was the Heirloom Tomato, paired with green olive tapenade, lovage emulsion, and whipped ricotta. This dish was visually stunning and full of flavours, with the tangy tapenade and creamy ricotta complementing the fresh, juicy tomatoes perfectly.





Course 3: The highlight of the evening for me was undoubtedly the Spaghetti Nero. Featuring chilli, garlic, Provolone del Monaco foam, and toasted sourdough, this dish was a masterpiece.  The pasta was cooked perfectly, slightly al dente but it was the combination of textures and tastes that exploded in your mouth that did it for me, I just wanted more.  An amazing dish!


Course 4: Black Pollock served with zucchini, braised fennel, and basil dressing. The fish was cooked to perfection, very flaky and the accompanying vegetables added a refreshing and aromatic twist. Each bite was delicate yet flavourful, showcasing the chef's skill in balancing ingredients.





Course 5: My guest's dish of the evening was the Trio of Pork, featuring belly of pork, pancetta jam, nduja cannelloni, smoked onion, and pickled summer squash, a visually impressive dish full of flavour, although for me I found it a bit heavy.


Course 6: Our meal concluded with a divine Lemon Mousseline polenta cake, caramelized white chocolate, and yogurt sorbet. This dessert was a perfect balance of sweet and tart, creamy and crunchy, leaving a lasting impression on our taste buds.


The optional wine pairing is highly recommended. Despite needing to send back the first pairing as it tasted off, the rest of the wine selection was thoughtfully chosen to complement the respective dishes. Each pairing enhanced the overall dining experience, with even the surprisingly cold sparkling Lambrusco red wine pairing wonderfully with our dessert.


Aman, our waiter, was personable and knowledgeable about both the food and wine, providing detailed explanations of each course and its pairing. His passion and expertise added an extra layer of enjoyment to our evening.


Overall,  Six by Nico's Amalfi Coast-inspired tasting menu is a culinary masterpiece not to be missed. Our tastebuds tingled from the very first mouthful, right through to the dessert, the food was  just full of exquisite flavours. Whether you're a seasoned foodie or simply looking for a unique dining experience in Fitzrovia, Six by Nico is highly recommended. We definitely look forward to returning.
