For starters, the house salad includes burrata, prosciutto, artichokes, and rocket. Other options are a simple Caprese salad, and a small celery salad with white anchovies, parmesan and red onions.
Coalition is all about pizzas with fresh ingredients and bases that strike a perfect balance between crunch and chew. Classic menu options include margherita, Holtini (coppa ham, thyme, mushrooms and Italian parsley), Siyani (with chorizo, chilli and cherry tomatoes), the heavenly Cedare (salami, garlic, blue cheese and olives), as well as the Heleni, with toppings including salsiccia, friarielli and capers. If you don’t feel like pizza, short rib served with focaccia and greens is a delicious option.
To end off on a sweet note, dessert options include panna cotta, affogato home-made ice cream with a shot of espresso, and tiramisu.
A good selection of wines is available, with a few good beers, as well as Aperol, Inverroche gin and a few other standard bar options.
A relaxed atmosphere on a busy corner in Parkwood. Seating is inside or outside on the pavement.
Service is the one thing that can be a letdown at Coalition – it’s inconsistent, and staff don’t always seem bothered to smile or help with the menu. All in all, it feels more like a great place for takeaways than for sitting down and expecting to be well attended to.
Lunch or dinner in a relaxed, intimate atmosphere – a quick, casual bite and conversation, takeouts, or a delicious start or end to a night out.
