Ascend the perilous slopes of Leadenhall Market’s steepest staircase to reach this delightfully informal restaurant, which lives & breathes the Med. Gleaming white walls, colourful Vietri ceramics & evocative scenes of Italian markets provide a suitable backdrop to the sunny, southern cooking: starters of San Daniele ham with soft crescenza cheese & toasted focaccia or deep-fried calamari with chilli chutney might be followed by a tranche of halibut with roasted fennel or a veal cutlet with fried potatoes. There’s also a risotto of the day & a handy choice of unusual pastas such as paccheri with fresh crabmeat, aubergines & cherry tomatoes or casarecce with broccoli & smoked salami. The wine list offers some tasty Italian pickings from across the regions.
