Loyal regulars would probably riot if Zafferano changed its ways, but who needs innovation when the kitchen can deliver ‘honest platefuls of unfussy comfort and joy' from the best ingredients, even with this year's change of chef. Creamy burrata on grilled aubergine, lobster tagliarini with chilli and tomato, osso-bucco ravioli and ‘the best tiramisu in town' may be familiar, but have become classics for good reason. Elsewhere, it's all about the seasons, from heaps of ‘squeaky' summery peas and broad beans with sheep's ricotta to entire menus dedicated to heady Alba truffles come autumn. A smattering of freebies (one-bite canapés, home-baked breads and pre-dessert cannoli) helps to justify bills that can get ‘hefty', although prices dip at lunchtime for a £26 three-course menu. The interior is ‘smart and ripe' with luxuriant floral displays and striped seating; ‘unnervingly dashing, sharply turned-out staff' regularly turn heads, and the wine list is a wondrous collection of superTuscans and other fine Italian vintages.
