Excellent lunch at Caffe Macchiato.
Pollo buscaiola, breast of chicken cooked with wine, peppers, served with porcini mushrooms in a garlic and tomato sauce, chips and a side salad.
The side salad, very similar to a Greek salad, was served first, which was good, as I was hungry.
In the spring, it would be better to serve with English or Jersey new potatoes rather than chips.
Portion generous. More than sufficient for two people.
Everything freshly prepared from fresh ingredients.
Caffe Macchiato is an Italian restaurant at the top end of Union Street. The only attractive building in the street.
Union Street was an attractive tree-lined street, pleasant to sit outside Caffe Macchiato on a warm afternoon. All the trees have been cut down and uprooted, leaving an unpleasant stark urban street.
Caffe Macchiato is a rarity being the only decent place to eat in Aldershot. Indeed it is even worth making a trip to Aldershot.
End of last year an idiot had left a very nasty review on TripAdvisor claiming poor service, unpleasant staff, not freshly cooked or fresh ingredients. Ignore, as a pack of lies.
Occasional live music in the evening. The next live music is on St Valentine’s day, but it is already overbooked.
