Green Thinking - Better Living

Amico Bio opened in 2010 and is the brainchild of Pasquale Amico.

London's original vegetarian-organic-Italian restaurant, boasting an intimate, rustic dining area that doesn't compromise on character and atmosphere, Amico Bio stands as one of the city's more vivid, singular and innovative eateries.

With two branches in Holborn and Barbican, Amico Bio's always-evolving menu is sourced from ingredients fresh from Pasquale's family farm in Capua, Italy, and offers a deliciously varied range of vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan dishes, created from seasonal products with an authentic and traditional Italian spirit.


Two distinctive restaurants, one big healthy concept. We serve great-tasting, authentic Italian, vegetarian food at our restaurants with a daily changing menu.
