Square Meal Review of Tinello ?

“Contrived, elegant, crowd-pleasing highbrow theatre” is how one reader describes Tinello – a “classy little number” with New York-style exposed brickwork, moody aluminium lighting and Parisian velvet curtains draped along one wall. The menu is “pretty serious stuff”, an unpretentious mix of ‘small eats’ and larger plates that generally exceed expectations: a punch-packing starter of grilled calamari with ’nduja and chickpeas satisfies the flavour cravers, but there’s also a delicate salad of white peaches, oyster mushrooms and almonds for those who like prettiness on the plate. Pastas include some simple masterpieces (pappardelle with rabbit ragu, “melting” braised pork-cheek ravioli, tagliatelle with prosciutto and Parmesan), while mains fashionably favour fish and white meat – think cod fillet with mussels and pumpkin stew or char-grilled baby chicken with lemon and spinach. The fascinating Italian regional wine list is a knock-out, and prices are unusually fair for this neighbourhood.

  1. In Victoria for an event last week, somehow the canapes, cocktails and champagne didn’t quite hit the spot and about 8pm I felt very hungry. It’s not a part of London I know very well – there are a few good Hotels, like the one we were in for the event and not much else within walking distance. Yes of course we could have got a cab into the West End, or even hiked up there, but my Stilettos really don’t do that kind of walking unless absolutely necessary...
