We were really pleased when new Head Chef, James Torin Moore got in touch to ask for VBs help to promote Abdel Kaissam’s new delivery service. This article is part of what we’re doing for them.
The Rex Piano Bar started a trial two weeks ago to deliver quality pizza to Ventnor and the surrounding area.
We popped in there at the end of last week and chatted to the owner Abdel Kaissam and head chef, James about the trial.
They tell us that it’s been such a success, not only are they going to continue it, but they’re expanding it in two ways.
Beyond the pasta and pizza that they deliver, the Rex are making many of the dishes from their menu main available for delivery as well.
The list is comprehensive, including starters (eg Chilli Squid), main courses (eg Sirloin Steak With Bois Boudrin) and deserts (Apple and Cinnamon CrÃªpe).
Delivery area increased
If you live around Ventnor and have felt excluded from delivery, your concerns may have come to an end as the delivery area has been expanded to include Bonchurch, St Lawrence, Whitwell, Niton and even Chale.
Their timing couldn’t be much better. With the weather making moves to close in, what better idea than to stay at home by the wood-burner, eat delicious food without having to worry about making it, simply by lifting the phone handset?
Best pizza in Ventnor
Last week we sampled the Rex thin crust, 10″ pizzas – specifically the Beefy Beast (Steak, red onion and mushroom) and Seafood Medley (Tuna, shrimp, salmon and olives) – and found them to be delicious.
Not only were they well-presented, but were really tasty and filling, with two pizzas and a mixed salad easily able to satisfy three adults, making it good value at £9.95 each for a pizzas.
We had the additional benefit of eating them in the blazing sun outside at The Rex Piano Bar, over-looking the beauty of Ventnor.
After eating them, we agreed that they were the best pizzas that we’d eaten in Ventnor (by no means influenced by us being paid to write this).
It’s not just us that found the food good. Miss Robson, of East Street, Ventnor had ordered a pizza for delivery recently converting her into a fan, “I really enjoyed it and I’m planning on making a weekly thing.”
Mr Ramjet of Upper Ventnor had high praise for the pasta and pizza
he’d ordered, “They were so good, I’m going to book in at the restaurant.”
