SquareMeal Review of
This dinky licensed café bypasses London-based Italian suppliers and goes straight to Tuscany for its bread, charcuterie, beer, wine and more besides. The result is an enticing selection of hearty
snacks, filling dishes and assorted items often designed for sharing. Try a terracotta bowl of thick ribollita (a hearty Tuscan bread-and-vegetable soup), followed by a generous platter of cured
meats or a crostone (crostini’s bigger brother, piled high with combinations such as melted pecorino, thinly sliced pork and juicy marinated artichokes). For dessert, pistocchi chocolate cake
provides a dense, sticky finale. The main dining area, with its cracked white walls and low wooden stools, is a casual, rustic space crammed with shelves of pricey Tuscan produce – perfect for a
happy mix of young locals and tourists. Meanwhile, all-Italian staff get the job done.
