Italian dining @ Cucina Rustica

Leafy and picturesque, St Paul’s Square is slowly but surely becoming one of my favourite spots in the city. Nestled below the bustling streets of the Jewellery Quarter, this small but vibrant part of Birmingham becomes a hive of activity come the weekend; largely thanks to the array of independent bars and restaurants scattered around… Continue reading Italian dining @ Cucina Rustica

Simple Italian dining @ Del Villaggio

I've never been the biggest fan of Broad Street, and until my boyfriend and I became Unlimited members of Cineworld (at the Five Ways end of the street) a few years ago I'd not spent much time in that area of the city.

Place your bets: The Restaurant, Broadway Casino 

I've never been much of a gambler, but when we visited Las Vegas (and subsequently booked our wedding!) in October last year I got quite a taste for Blackjack. With our forthcoming nuptials in Sin City at the forefront of mind, I was delighted to be invited to Broadway Casino to check out their Italian… Continue reading Place your bets: The Restaurant, Broadway Casino
