Square Meal Review of Tuscanic ?

This dinky licensed café bypasses London-based Italian suppliers and goes straight to Tuscany for its bread, charcuterie, beer, wine and more besides. The result is an enticing selection of hearty snacks, filling dishes and assorted items often designed for sharing. Try a terracotta bowl of thick ribollita (a hearty Tuscan bread-and-vegetable soup), followed by a generous platter of cured meats or a crostone (crostini’s bigger brother, piled high with combinations such as melted pecorino, thinly sliced pork and juicy marinated artichokes). For dessert, pistocchi chocolate cake provides a dense, sticky finale. The main dining area, with its cracked white walls and low wooden stools, is a casual, rustic space crammed with shelves of pricey Tuscan produce – perfect for a happy mix of young locals and tourists. Meanwhile, all-Italian staff get the job done.

We’re usually rushing and knackered from the day job, so switching off and enjoying the night can sometimes take a while to happen. At Tuscanic, no sooner had we walked through the door we were charmed and swept away to that can’t be beaten feeling of being on holiday. This sense of calm was despite the hustle and bustle, the small rickety stools and tables barely big enough to hold our food without it almost slipping into our laps. This long and narrow Italian café bypasses London-based suppliers and goes straight to Tuscany for its charcuterie, bread, beer, wine and even its bottled water...
