SquareMeal Review of Ostuni Highgate

Bronze Award

Puglia, that southern, sun-soaked region of Italy, had been under-represented (ie non-existent) on the London dining scene until this double-fronted cantina opened its doors. Ostuni’s shtick is rustic plates of pasta, seafood and ‘bombettes’ (rolled pork with provolone cheese) baked in a traditional stone oven. It’s packed most nights, which means service is frenetic, but it’s warm and authentic – just like the food. Tonno carpaccio is light, and garnished with lemony raw fennel salad. The slow-cooked octopus with fava bean purée is umami-rich and perfectly cooked. Foglia d’ulivo – olive leaf shaped green pasta with garlic mushrooms, truffle and a dollop of burrata melting on top – is heaven in a dish. Fresh fish is brought in daily, so the sea bream baked in a salt crust or catch of the day is worth a shot, served with a rocket and fennel salad, leaving room for a mug of tiramisu to finish. Kick off with a Negroni then move on to a carafe of Locorotondo, a punchy white that pairs well with meat and fish.

Friendly Italian restaurant
24 July 2016  
The food is rustic and seems authentic. We started with a bowl of different breads - all of them good - and a plate of salami and cured capocollo. Then we had a dish of roasted meats to share, including bombette, chunks of lamb and a tiny bit of chicken along with some fennel and radish salad, and a sort of sweet chilli tomato sauce for dipping. Add some ultra-thin and crispy courgette fries and this was filling and plenty for two. With a bottle of Puglian red we felt very relaxed and almost on holiday, made even more so by bumping into some friends we hadn't seen for ages. This feels like a good community place, and good news for Highgate.
