A charming neighbourhood restaurant serving delicious traditional Italian fare...
This small but perfectly formed restaurant is the type of place where locals settle in and never leave... When the weather is amicable, enjoy an al fresco meal on the outdoor patio, which provides the perfect vantage point to watch the world go by.
A cheerful candy-striped awning at the entrance beckons visitors in. The pared down, fresh, white decor with its intimate seating plan, makes it a great place to catch up with friends or enjoy a low-key romantic meal with your companion.
The mains menu includes classic dishes such as Tuna Tartare; Veal; Penna Alla Norma; Yellow Fin Tuna, Wild Rice and Capers and 24- month-aged Prosciutto Crudo.
During our visit, I enjoyed the Courgette Flowers stuffed with creamy Ricotta cheese, which for cheese lovers, is a little parcel of warm, cheesy goodness. Italian comfort food at it's best.
For the main, I opted for the Veal, which was breadcrumbed and served with a tomato salad and a lemon wedge. Simply done and well executed.
My companion opted for the Tuna Tartare, which I'm not a fan of in general, but it looked superb.
Desserts options on offer include Mango salad, Cannoli Siciliani, Almond and orange cake, yoghurt or a selection of Sicilian cheeses. Sadly, we were too full to indulge in dessert, and instead enjoyed the shaved lemon ice, which was very refreshing and perfect for cleansing the palate.
Overall, it's a great place to visit if you're looking for a casual restaurant serving great food in South Kensington.
