This place has wonderful products on display. The top brands of pasta, fine oils and a drinks list that suggest the owners clearly care about wine. It's a boldly short menu, which suggests that only dishes which has been perfected are on offer. In those...More

Hadn't been for ages and was surprised to see it looks a bit grubby now. Very nice people running the place and the cured meat platter to share was very good (although the olives were a bit dubious). I didn't go for a main course...More
