El Murrino Bournemouth Review

This weekend I finally got around to trying somewhere I've been meaning to go for ages.... El Murrino, Bournemouth. I've seen their pizzas all over Instagram, especially during Christmas Market season, so this weekend whilst I was in Bournemouth I decided to give it a try... 


With over 20 pizzas to choose from as well as 15 pasta dishes, risottos and salads, it's fair to say that the El Murrino menu is pretty vast for an Italian restaurant. One thing to note is that the menu has limited vegan options, so if that's something you're looking for, El Murrino might not be the place for you.


With a bright glass front, the restaurant is airy and light. It has exposed brick walls, industrial-style lighting, and a huge bar with black and white tiles. It's not a massive building, so the bright decor certainly helps it to feel bigger and more spacious. 


The bit we're all here for... The food! The pizzas were incredible! Matt and I had a garlic pizza bread with cheese to start and then a margherita pizza each. The bases were fantastic - nice and light, there was plenty of cheese and the tomato sauce was really tasty. I can't fault the pizzas in any way at all, one of the best I've had in a while.


Being quite a small venue (with, from what I can tell, a bigger emphasis on takeaway) it was fairly quiet. When we arrived at about 12:30 on a Saturday we were the only people in there to begin with. The service wasn't the quickest ever, so it's certainly not somewhere to go in a rush. In terms of price, for two lemonades, a garlic pizza bread with cheese and two margheritas we paid under £28 - it's very reasonable! They also do all sorts of offers and meal deals so be sure to check those out if you're keen to give El Murrino a go. 

The pizzas at El Murrino were fantastic. If I'm ever in the Bournemouth area and fancying a pizza, this is definitely going to be my new go-to spot!
