Facing its elder sibling, Mews of Mayfair, across a buzzy foodie alleyway off Bond Street, Cartizze comprises two intimate, art-deco, ink-toned salons – a bijou, glitzy Italianate hangout that seems to be aimed at the kind of people who frequent yacht parties in Monaco. The name refers to the cream of Italy’s Prosecco vineyards – a smart alternative that weighs in £20 cheaper than the bar’s entry-level Champagne. Prosecco also informs various bellinis including our top trio: blood orange, rhubarb and sgroppino (with limoncello sorbet, Verveine citronella liqueur and lemon). Sicilian gimlet, barrel-aged negroni and a luxury version made using vintage Campari are also ‘molto bene’, but a truffle oil, liquorice and Chivas Regal sour – however smartly turned out – is likely to polarise opinion. Aperitivi include tuna tartare, scallops with pancetta, and figs wrapped in San Daniele ham. Note: bookings by email only.
