SquareMeal Review of Vicino

“Smart without ever threatening to surprise you”, this accomplished neighbourhood favourite combines old-time charm with the look and feel of a modern trattoria. Inside, black-and-white portraits of spaghetti-loving diners rub shoulders with film memorabilia, while white tablecloths and sympathetic lighting give the place a welcoming vibe. Sit in the airy conservatory at the front if you can, and enjoy a menu that ranges from Burrata with grilled vegetables or tagliatelle al ragù to more sophisticated offerings such as homemade sea bass ravioli or veal paillard with lemon and spinach. Lobsters are the speciality of the house, ‘dolci’ might range from affogato to pannacotta with raspberries, and the wide-ranging, patriotic wine list offers a few choice tipples by the half-bottle. Vicino is a popular family haunt at weekends, but expect hearty Italian hospitality whenever you drop in.

Yum. I went late-ish on a Monday evening and there were enough other diners to avoid that empty feeling. I like the decor – it's simple but the photos are eye-catching. The olives and paste thingy (aubergine?) were ideal to nibble while browsing the extensive menu, and were willingly refilled for us as we waited for companions to arrive. My De Cecco salad starter was a perfect salad for me, each ingredient fresh and well matched. In the liver with bacon, the slices of liver were deliciously fine. My companions were happy with their swordfish. I had no room for pudding, but I look forward to returning soon and trying one. The service was attentive but not overbearing, and, although we were the last to leave, was warm and friendly to the end. Lovely.
