Tucked away on an Islington side street, this 40-seater neighbourhood Italian has a friendly, informal feel thanks to its open kitchen, exposed brickwork & stripped-back wooden floors. It hopes to attract locals who want home-style cooking without the effort of having to cook it themselves. The main men – owner Max Tilelli, manager Massimo Corona & head chef Marco Botto – are all from the south, so the food ranges from classics such as fritto misto to twists on old favourites including grilled swordfish with tomato sauce & orange peel or lemon & limoncello tiramisu. The kitchen also offers daily specials & a keenly priced, three-course lunch menu, while the wine list spreads itself far & wide, taking in many of the owner’s favourites from the Old & New Worlds.
