SquareMeal Review of Casa Tua King's Cross

This effortlessly charming, traditional Italian doesn't shy away from cliché, but once you've tried the handmade pasta and clocked the price, you’ll probably be channelling La Dolce Vita anyway. Translating as The House of Moustache, Casa Tua was founded by Giuseppe from Puglia, who (you guessed it) boasts a formidable 'tache. The informal, simple dining room is embellished with vines and vintage Italian vinyl, while it's tucked-away location beside a church provides rare calm, considering its proximity to King's Cross. The menu covers continental breakfast and brunch options, followed by a range of Puglia-centric small plates and pastas. Our meaty octopus salad benefitted from lashings of lemon juice, while a crisp stack of polenta chips was lavished with layers of lardo strips. Questionable points included (traditionally Puglian) brocolli pesto and supremely al dente vegan strozzapreti, but if you're looking for a freshly made, hearty portion of quality pasta, you'll find it here. All the pastas are made fresh on-site (and driven to Casa Tua Camden daily, too), with similar attention paid to the smooth Negronis, aged for one month in an oak barrel. A brief, affordable wine list also favours Puglia, while the affable, all-Italian troupe of staff completes this strong package.

I went there for dinner after an early show at the Curzon Bloomsbury. What a lovely little find! We were greeted in the most friendly manner, and seated immediately. We ordered some sweet potato crisps with garlic aioli dip to enjoy whilst we perused the menu. My son had the fresh pasta, and I the sea bass. Both dishes very good. The only downside I'd say, is that the wine was expensive at £20 for a carafe of white. On the whole would totally recommend for the lovely atmosphere, and terrific service.
