Combining three of our favourite things, Attimi provides delicious Italian food, a stellar drinks list and outstanding service. The results of such a perfect trifecta is a spot that you’ll want to visit time and time again.
Here, quality is key, so you can expect a menu that features recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. Dishes showcase the best of seasonal ingredients, keeping things fresh and simple for authentic yet contemporary plates of crowd-pleasing food. Executive Chef Matteo Berengo heads up the offering, which celebrates Italian Cicchetti and classic pasta dishes.
On the line-up you’ll find snacky bits to start – think homemade rosemary and cherry tomato focaccia, olives, or bruschetta – followed by sharing boards, small plates, and pasta. Small plates are the perfect way to kick off proceedings, whetting your appetite for what’s to come. Here you might find slow cooked pork belly with crispy skin; sweet vinegar leeks; or pan seared scallops with pea velouté and salmon roe.
Mains are the kitchen’s calling card, with all sorts of homemade, fresh pasta dishes on offer. There's something for everyone, but our favourite is the classic cacio e pepe where hand-rolled pasta is tossed in Pecorino and Parmesan before being finished off with lots of black pepper for a rich and indulgent main. Other highlights include the linguine allo scoglio liquid. Here, creamy courgettes are cooked with shell water and served with clams and mussels, topped with a garlic and parsley crumb. Desserts change regularly but you can expect classics like gelato and tiramisu.
The set lunch menu offers incredible value for money. At just £15.50 for two courses or £18.50 for three courses, you can indulge in a choice of dishes that range from soup of the day through to pasta alla Norma – a traditional mix of aubergine and Sicilian salted ricotta.
