Call Dalla Terra to make a booking on:
An urbane London take on the Italian enoteca, Dalla Terra (‘from the earth’) brings together a café, wine bar and wine boutique in the trendy St. Martin’s Courtyard development. A popular
rendezvous for the after-work crowd and a bolthole for Saturday shoppers, it boasts marble surfaces, loungey chairs by an open fire and swanky contemporary detailing, with an all-day kitchen and
knowledgeable staff to back things up. Coffees and pastries give way to lunchtime paninis, impeccably sourced charcuterie boards and salads, while dinner is a celebration of seasonal ‘cucina
povera’ – think melting beef carpaccio with rocket, caciocavallo cheese shavings and a generously drizzle of truffle oil or confit pork with preserved broad beans. A 180-bin, all-Italian wine list
includes many exclusive labels, with over 30 by the glass; all bottles are available to take home.

One of the best Italian wine selections of any restaurant outside of Italy. Plus wines from all over the world. Meats and cheese platters sourced from Borough Market, so always delicious.

We've been regulars to this Enoteca for a couple of years now. A perfect place for any social events. The wine choices are impeccable and the staff always make you welcome with big smiles, guiding us to the right direction with wine selection and food. Fantastic homemade Italian food and their premium antipasti boards are second to none. Highly recommended for dates, meeting friends, family... for drinks and snacks or drinks and food. Thumbs up!!!

In this instance "cucina povera" would translate better as "poor food" rather than "slow food" as the home page of this restaurant would have it. I should have paid more attention to the website before suggesting it for a pre-ballet bite as I would have noticed it has a "concept" page, which is code for overwrought, over thought and overpriced food. I had a black rice prawn and tuna superfood salad whilst my friend had the prawn, courgette and saffron risotto. The statement on the website that the menu is designed around seasonal produce is not exactly accurate- we had this back in summery July and the menu on the website is exactly the same in autumnal October- but the statement that dishes are "small and light" certainly is accurate. So accurate that my friend complained to the waitress that 3 prawns do not a prawn risotto make, and I must agree, particularly as the whole portion could have fitted in to the palm of your hand. Bizarrely the waitress replied that that was "how the owner wants it"! What? Bad? She had the grace to look rather sheepish after saying that and then went off to the kitchen and came back with an extra portion 10 minutes later (when we had finished and were ready to go). But I rather suspect my friend had wished she hadn't bothered as that night she was as sick as a dog, so god knows what was going on in the kitchen when creating that extra couple of mouthfuls. My food was quite flavoursome although slightly over lemony and with very little identifiable prawn or tuna and again a small portion. Perhaps this place would say it's a wine bar rather than a restaurant but I can't say I was blown away by the wine list anyway (btw, they charge a £10 corkage fee if you buy a bottle "in house" and a wine by the glass costs up to £25). It's a good location but the atmosphere is nothing particularly special (although I liked the toilets). It seems this place is less about making homely, traditional, peasanty "cucina povera" and more about making the owner "ricco".
