Our first visit to Trullo and what a revelation. Looks like nothing from the outside (and the setting on St Paul's Road is dreary, busy with traffic and uninviting). The inside is also nothing to write home about – but oh, the food. The glorious, different, special, lovingly-prepared food. So wonderful. And staff that know the menu inside out and will spend as long as you want explaining it all to you. And they make you feel they are delighted to have you. You can tell they take real pride in the fact that all their food is cooked from scratch there during the afternoon. The salads stood out – leaves carefully chosen to balance each other in colour, texture and flavour and the most delicious dressing I have tasted in a long time. The olive oil for dipping bread was spicy and sharp – if you've ever tasted a ‘moreish’ olive oil (I hadn't), then this was it. When the mains arrived, everything lived up to expectations. Unusual ragu for me and a melting beef dish for him. The bill for 2 mains, 2 salads and a bottle of water, with bread and olives, came in shy of £60. We will be back – indeed we tried to get back tonight but the tables all taken. I am not surprised. I just hope this review doesn't drive hundreds to their door. Just in case, we've booked 2 weeks away!!! Truly excellent all round.
