SquareMeal Review of
There are thousands of Italian restaurants in the capital, but very few genuinely Sicilian places until Iddu arrived. Sicilian cuisine is a hotchpotch of all things Mediterranean, with a few spices from old trade routes mixed in – powerful sun, temperaments and flavours all add to the pot, and the result when it’s well done, is superb. Chef Francesca D’Amico has all the credentials – born in Palermo, brought up in Taormina, plenty of experience on the London scene, and the Italian born proprietor Andrea Bassi knows what he’s doing as well. Choose from baked ricotta salad with balsamic; swordfish, marinated shrimp on cannellini beans and kamut linguine with organic Sicilian tomato sauce as well as a selection of grilled Panini and aubergine parmigiana to take away. To drink? Rich hot Sicilian wines and proper Sicilian coffee, made from beans imported direct from Messina.
