If you are in Pinner and you are wondering where to go so you can enjoy a lovely dinner – why not look into a Mediterranean restaurant? Our team loves how diverse and interesting the Mediterranean cuisine is – and today, we will share all of our favourite places in Pinner that offer the most delicious Mediterranean dishes.
Top 4 Mediterranean Restaurants In Pinner According To Our Team
Turquoise Kitchen Pinner
Probably the most beautiful Mediterranean restaurant in Pinner that you can visit is Turquoise Kitchen. The interior is modern and stylish, the service is excellent, and, of course, the food is fantastic.
When you go to restaurants like Turquoise, you are definitely not in a hurry and you want to enjoy a nice relaxing meal which means that you will start off with starters. They have hot and cold options such as Hummus, Spicy Turkish Sausage, Greek Salad (feta cheese. tomato, cucumber, onion, parsley), and Mitite Kofte (mixed minced lamb with chopped onions, peppers, mushrooms).
Their main dishes are just as impressive as the starters. For example, we recommend the Turkish charcoal-grilled kebabs – our favourite is their unique Pistachio Adana (which is minced lamb mixed with pistachios). You can also never go wrong with their Greek Kleftiko (oven-cooked lamb meat with sauteed potatoes, peppers, carrots, onions, celery), the Vine Leaves Stuffed with Rice, or their Turkish Ravioli (ravioli wrapped around minced meat, served with yoghurt).

Izgara Hatch End
The next restaurant offering Turkish and Mediterranean food that we highly recommend you visit is Izgara. Just like the previous option on our list, this place is very modern and stylish. Book a table for dinner and enjoy a lovely night.
Our favourite starters include Fatoush (a salad with tomato, sumac, cucumber, radish, pickles, olives, parsley, spring onion, sun-dried tomato, rocket, pomegranate seeds, homemade bread), Beetroot Salad (with beetroot, feta cheese, pickles, sun-dried tomatoes, spring onion, vinaigrette dressing, served with homemade bread), Falafel, and their Spicy Baby Meat Balls (served with tomato sauce and bread).
When it comes to their main dishes, they have plenty of incredible options such as the Izmir Kofte (lamb meatballs with bread crumbs, potatoes, tomato sauce, served with rice), delicious charcoal-grilled kebabs, and if you love seafood – the Sea Food Grill which includes prawns, salmon, octopus, baby carrots, asparagus.

Next on our list is a traditional Italian restaurant that is a family-run business founded over 25 years ago. Not only do they have a lot of experience and an incredible menu filled with all of our favourite Italian food but the interior is also very traditional and rustic with wooden floors, wooden tables, and wooden chairs. When you visit, you will feel like you are in Italy for sure!
Main dishes include pasta, pizza, and quite a few other traditional meat and fish options such as Aragosta alla griglia (grilled lobster, olive oil, garlic) and Filetto al Pepe (grilled steak, special pepper sauce).
If you are like us, and you love pasta, we highly recommend their Fettucine con Funghi Porcini e Tartufo Pesto (which has mushrooms and truffle pesto), Spaghetti Alla Carbonara, Gnocchi Alla Melanzane (gnocchi with tomato sauce, aubergines, mozzarella), and the Linguine all’Amatriciana (which has bacon, onions, tomato sauce).
And our favourite dessert is, of course, a traditional homemade Tiramisu!

And last on our list is Minori – the pizzeria you should visit when you are craving delicious Italian pizza. When it comes to the interior, it’s
bright, colourful, and vibrant. If you don’t eat meat – they have a lot of vegetarian pizzas, and if you happen to be vegan, they also have a separate Vegan menu where you will find a lot of starters, salads, pasta, and also pizza.
We always start off either with a Bufala su tartare di Pomodoro e olive (which is a salad with buffalo mozzarella, tomatoes, onions, garlic,
olives, basil, oregano) or Gamberoni Alla Provinciale (king prawns, garlic, white wine, chilli, tomato and parsley sauce) and then we get a pizza!
If you are vegan, we recommend you start off with their Tagliere di verdure (which has peppers, aubergines, courgettes, artichokes,
asparagus, butternut squash, and plain Foccacia) then either move on to their pasta or pizza. Pasta includes options such as Spaghetti ai pomodori secchi (with sun-dried tomatoes, garlic, chillies, tomato sauce, basil) and Tagliatelle al pesto (with basil pesto and cherry tomatoes) while the pizza options include Margherita vegana (with vegan mozzarella) and Ortolana vegana (with tomato sauce, vegan mozzarella, artichokes, peppers, courgettes, basil, olive oil).
