The menu is expansively Italian, so there is quite a lot of Italian fare to choose from. Start with the salmon roulade, which is a salmon carpaccio filled with lemon-zest cream cheese and basil leaves, topped with a citrus vinaigrette and served on a bed of fresh greens and fried capers. The zest and tingle of this on the palate gets you ready for the main dish. Ready to eat hearty? Then order the bistecca alla Fiorentina. This generous T-bone is roasted in their pizza oven, marinated with olive oil, garlic and rosemary. Credit to the chef, even when this is requested well done, unlike a classic bistecca alla Fiorentina, the steak is well cooked without being crusted on the outside. A side of mashed potatoes, butternut and spinach, rounds this dish off nicely. Indulge your senses by ordering a tronco di bosco, the chocolate contained therein is the kind of decadence on which to end your dining.
The wine list is solid, and best of all, you can get excellent recommendations on what to have from the staff.
The staff make you feel most welcome, and are attentive, and professional.
On a cold winter night, a spot by the pizza oven would seem like it was made especially for you and can make forget about leaving. They have done a great job in creating an Italian feel to the place, with the retro Italian movie ads on the walls.
The place is busy, but doesn’t feel packed, and the buzzy vibe makes for a great place whether as a family, a group of friends, or just a cozy couple.
