SquareMeal Review of Sicily by Da Scalzo

Combining sound Italian food with a gallery of contemporary art and photography, buzzy Da Scalzo brings a welcome dash of class to a rundown area opposite Victoria coach station. Housed in a listed redbrick building that was once a church hall, this open-plan bar/restaurant serves early-bird breakfasts as well as a keenly priced menu of pizzas, pasta, salads and trattoria mains. Standards such as tagliatelle carbonara or veal escalope with Marsala won’t win any awards for originality, but the food is tasty and it comes with genuinely warm, friendly service. Da Scalzo’s owners founded the Patisserie Valerie chain, so you would expect some tempting sweet stuff to finish – perhaps tiramisu or rustic apple tart with mascarpone cream. Gluggable wines by the carafe are also appreciated. Regular private viewings and talks by exhibiting artists are well worth checking out.

After visiting this restaurant many times over the last year, it has now changed hands with a much reduced and disappointing menu choice. For starter we ordered the only meat dish - meatballs and by 6:30pm on a Tuesday they told us they had run out . The tables were too close together and the waiters kept knocking my chair every time they passed and it felt like we were joining the couple at the next table we were so close . For all the lack of choice on the menu with some classics now gone - the main course itself was good. I had the lamb fillet which was full of flavour and nicely presented. Not sure I will frequent this restaurant as much as before due to the menu which is a shame ....

We were meeting up with friends for a walk starting in Sloane Square and taking in Battersea Park and Chelsea Old Church. Having not eaten around this area for a while I went by the reviews of others on the website, so pleased I did. Firstly the welcome was excellent, I had warned the restaurant we might not be on time but they made us feel valued and were most accommodating. We sat upstairs so away from others, good as we had privacy but it lacked a little in atmosphere although we could here the music floating up the stairs-just! Our waiter was of the gentle kind and checked our order meticulously. A little slow to serve drinks but I expect it just seemed like that as we had done quite a bit of walking. We had olives with our drinks which were good and water was frequently topped up. I remember paying a lot for water in another restaurant here it was free. The food was great, mostly. Pizza's were huge and tasty, pasta perfectly cooked and very tasty also, tuna nicoise was made with fresh tuna and was excellent, but the risotto was a little bland for my husband who likes spicy food, he could have added some chilli oil and my spaghetti vongole was so good I could have eaten a bit more. Coffee and puds were very good especially the creme brulee. The bill was very reasonable just under £20 a head including drinks, quite acceptable for London and we all had a very relaxing time chatting our way through this real Italian lunch.
