Since we have a few spaces left, if anyone wants to RSVP at the last minute and turn up to the meal, then feel free to do so. We are in the upstairs part and the reservation is under name Sanjay. I will wearing a purple shirt and black trouser.
If you're also coming to the drinks meetup afterwards at One Kew Road, then please also RSVP to that separately.
Another month coming up and guess what? No prizes for guessing correctly! Yes it's the monthly Saturday meal & drinks meetups.
This time an Italian place just outside of central Richmond, but only 5 minutes walk from Richmond train and tube station.
This is on a Rugby day. I know I've mentioned previously I'll try and avoid a Rugby day, but other days in Feb weren't possible. However, as Caffe Mamma is outside of central Richmond and not next to many large bars or pubs that are likely to attract a Rugby crowd, it shouldn't get too crowded early on. We will be upstairs where they have space for 50 people.
Caffe Mamma only does house wine by the glass, and other wines by half or full bottle. In questioning them about this, they said that although other places serve by the glass, they prefer to by half bottle or full bottle because wine doesn't really stay as good after a couple of days once opened. I'm sure plenty of people will have wine and therefore you can share a half or full bottle with people sitting near you.
They have a good range of pasta, pizza and other dishes, giving everyone plenty to choose from.

As usual, when the bill comes each person calculates what they owe and passes it to the person collecting the money for their table. Once again I'll ask the venue to split the menu into different tables. It worked out quite well for the last meal meetup at Cote.
