Carbonara – 49 Bridge Street Row
Taking its name from the quintessential pasta dish of Rome, Carbonara serves Italian cuisine in the stunning location of The Rows, Chester’s historic half-timbered buildings that combine Georgian, Victorian and medieval architecture. Its menu boasts an extensive array of Roman specialities including seafood and fish dishes, along with an authentic Carbonara made with eggs, guanciale, pecorino cheese and black pepper.
