SquareMeal Review of Artigiano

bronze award


There’s a modern sheen to this neighbourhood Italian joint, where a glass atrium boosts the sunlight factor in the daylight hours and moody lighting adds atmosphere as darkness descends. Old-school types will find plenty to satisfy, from deep-fried calamari to spaghetti with a fresh tomato sauce, but there’s more contemporary stuff too. Among first courses, a delicate timbale of crab, lobster and asparagus arrives wrapped in spinach leaves, and the brace of risottos could include a simple (and winning) combination of trevisano and Taleggio. Photos on the walls confirm visits from celebs such as Madonna and Kate Moss, but the waiters maintain equilibrium regardless of their guests’ status. We rate the simple main courses like seared tuna steak with zesty fennel salad, and for dessert, warm chocolate soufflé is perked up with an accompanying strawberry sorbet.

We must have been here at least half a dozen times, so that in itself shows we like it. In the winter it's warm and welcoming, in summer, when you can sit by the glass front opened up - it's like having dinner outside. it's quite smart with proper tablecloths and decent glassware, but not at all stuffy. On our last visit the other day we had courgette and aubergine salad with mozzarella, and beef bresaola with horseradish, asparagus and Parmesan, and then as usual we chose fish - the grilled whole sea bass for two to share, plus a couple of side dishes of rosemary potatoes and green beans. This is familiar Italian food with a few modern updates and makes a good dinner with a decent bottle of wine. We're fortunate that we can walk to it, the staff are always very pleasant and for us, it's a valued local restaurant.

We had another lovely evening at Artegiano on Friday night. But it was even more special this time because on Friday nights they have live jazz! It was the perfect compliment to their fantastic food and added to the atmosphere. I had the burata to start, which was yummy and creamy, and the risotto with lobster and scallops -- delicious. I highly recommend Artegiano. Definitely a Belsize local not to miss.

Remarkable. For a location bristling with potential, the restaurant under delivers at an exorbitant price. The appetizer of crab and lobster in a cream tamable was overwhelmed by mustard to make it inedible. The veal milanese was tough, over breaded and room temperature, with little character or texture. They were out of bread at 9PM. All this for £100. A real shame.
