‘Each visit leaves us with a belly full of fresh, flavoursome food’, trumpets a regular patron of this destination Italian on Bermondsey’s serious foodie strip. Large plate-glass windows edge one side of the minimalist room, while the open kitchen adds energetic buzz to proceedings. From vibrant plates of creamy burrata with roasted pumpkin to ‘melt-in-the-mouth’ pistachio cake, Zucca delivers ‘absolutely authentic’ cooking at prices that are still eminently reasonable for the quality on offer. A concise menu takes in classy antipasti (rabbit-liver bruschetta with walnuts and sage, say), excellent freshly made pasta (ravioli stuffed with mixed greens, almonds and watercress) and a mix of grilled and slow-cooked mains – perhaps calf’s liver with lentils and salsa verde. A great all-Italian wine list wears its heart on its sleeve and rounds off an impressive and hard-to-book package.
