SquareMeal Review of Fucina

Bronze Award

This stylish Italian is all about the joys of the grill (fucina roughly translates as ‘forge’) and all-organic ingredients, in an overly swanky setting. Serial restaurateur Kurt Zdesar (of Ping Pong and Chotto Matte fame) has focused his attentions on Italy this time, with family-style dining at its heart – there’s a superb pizza menu for a start. A colourful, sparkling variety of salads (think beetroot with walnut, caprino and yogurt) is followed by well-priced, stonebaked pizzas, quality pasta options and a (more expensive) range of grilled fish and meats: our delicately delicious black pig shoulder was worth the price tag. There's weekend brunch too, featuring Italian pastries and breakfast pizzas. The long, cavern-like room has had large bulges added to its ceiling, perhaps in an attempt to conjure intimacy from the lofty ceiling height (it’s officially supposed to create the look of a pizza oven’s interior), but the result is bizarrely distracting. Well-drilled staff and soft furnishings create a relaxing experience overall, making Fucina ideal for a refined lunch, if a discombobulating mix of swank and heartiness come dinner time.

Great evening. Not too strict about the timing and amount of cocktails, although we were the last people and it was emptying up! Great service and a lovely mixologist with divine cocktails.
