Croma aroma

It always looks festive at Croma to me. Even on a summer's evening there are stylish lights and foliage that add to the drama of this wonderful 19th century building at 1-3 Clarence Street. Add some blue lights in December and there you have it- festive pizzas like the snow: deep pan crisp and even... 

Croma's restaurants were designed by Italian designer and restauranter Enzo Apicella. Croma write that Apicella is "citied by The Guardian as one of five people in the 1960s who altered Britain's visual culture and opened up a whole generation's cognisance of pleasure, legendary food critic Fay Maschler said that he 'was responsible for ridding Italian restaurants of raffia-clad Chianti bottles and plastic grapes hanging on fabric vines'.

Enzo's knowledge of food and design has helped to establish Croma's personality, giving our stylish restaurants a real edge, alongside a comfortable dining experience." 


  1. Not sure about the vote from the Guardian, (a friend has a business in a top ten list of theirs, she got it because the one they wanted to visit was shut on the day the writer visited!). That said he would get my vote because of the chianti bottles alone.
    Thank you for the kind comment on my Leeds in Yorkshire daily photo. I used empty bottle and apple lemonade for the photograph. Paul

  2. Looks like a cool place - I'd definitely go inside for a try!
    Happy New Year, Chrissy!

  3. These are very exciting windows. Bet the pizza is equally delish!

  4. Sounds good to me Chrissy, one festive pizza to go thanks!! Hope you have a very happy New Year.

  5. What joy for the senses it must be.

    Please have a good start into the new year.

  6. Beautiful windows. I would be game to give the pizza a try for sure.
