Fuego at Fenwick Newcastle - the BEST Pizza in Toon

Fuego at Fenwick - Newcastle upon Tyne
39 Northumberland Street, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE99 1AR
 0191 2325100

Fuego is situated in the fantastic brand new multi million pound re-vamped Food Hall within Fenwick Newcastle. Fuego is a Mediterranean wine bar and restaurant which serves tapas, charcuterie and hand-stretched pizzas.

I’ve been to the wine bar many times whilst shopping in the amazing Food Hall with Fenwick  but have never ate within the restaurant however I’ve always left with my mouth watering after looking at other customers meals. 

The wine bar and restaurant has an excellent vibe – it is a great place to visit for lunch, after work drinks or evening meal.  Actually it is a great place to visit whenever you go to Newcastle. The restaurant is centred on a wood-stone oven, its name inspired by the feature stone at the centre of the impressive dining space.  
The menu has a great selection of dishes that would suit anyone whether they just wanted a bite to eat with a glass of wine or an evening meal.  I could’ve ate everything on the menu so it did take some time for us to finally decide on our dishes.  I will definitely have to re-visit Fuego very soon to order the dishes that I didn’t.

The food was amazing; my pizza was the best that I have had in years – it was absolutely delicious.  Also the staff are extremely professional, very friendly and attentive; they never let my glass go empty.

It is definitely a restaurant that I will be visiting again very soon. 

What we ordered:
For starter we shared Paela Arancini and Crispy Calamari with Saffron Aioli.  This could not have been better.

For main I had the Marino Pizza; Tiger Prawns, Calamari, Chilli, Black Olives and Capers (my mouth is watering at the thought, if I was not in York at the moment I would be heading straight to Fuego to get another pizza)

My friend had the Carbonara pizza; Pancetta, egg and shaved parmesan.

All the dishes were absolutely delicious – especially my pizza, next time I may try the Finochiona Pizza; Tuscan Fennel Salami (this was highly recommended by our waiter).  If it is as good as the Marino Pizza I thinking I will be dining at Fuego extremely frequently.

·         Brilliant service
·         Excellent value for money
·         A great casual dining experience
·         A great excuse to pop into the fantastic Food Hall


Highly Recommend – The BEST PIZZA in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
