SquareMeal Review of
Enoteca Turi’s move from its longstanding Putney site to a new home in SW1 seems to have been smooth enough, and though the new restaurant is smaller (there are plans to add a private room) it still has the bare-brick charm of the original. Owners Giuseppe and Pamela Turi know many of their loyal customers and are expert oenophiles, while their cooking celebrates the multifarious flavours of Italian regional cooking “at its best”. Expect classics such as wild mushroom risotto from Veneto and a Tuscan lamb ragu with pappardelle, alongside more unusual specialities like a Puglian dish of pancetta-wrapped lamb’s kidneys with Pecorino and herb salad, or marinated beef carpaccio with salt-dried egg yolk and Parmesan from Trentino. Giuseppe’s meticulously annotated 300-bin wine list is a wonder to behold, and with suggestions for every dish on the menu this restaurant more than lives up to its ‘enoteca’ billing.
