Not being a fan of Italian Food but lured by the £25/ 3 course offer (lunchtime and pre/post theatre) I arrived for our 6pm table. Drinks were ordered and arrived shortly followed by a basket of Bruscetta straight off the Brustolina and warm Focaccio breads (a starter in itself). The set menu arrived which I cynically expected to be limited and designed to steer me straight into the a la carte menu, in fact there was plenty of really interesting choices and settling for Bresaola for Antipasti, Tagliatelle con ragù di manzo (Beef Pasta) for ‘Primi’ and Beef Fillet with Poricini mushrooms for ‘Secondi’ I was offered (and accepted) more Bruschetta. Course by course this meal was an absolute triumph and a total revelation for someone who generally finds Italian food to be rarther bland and uninteresting. No surprise then that Theo Randall won ‘Italian Restaurant of the Year’ last year. This is a great restaurant, go and go hungry because they like to feed you…
