My partner searched high and low for an Italian restaurant to take me to while we were on a weekend trip to London for my birthday. Knowing I have visited Italy many times and tasted some beautiful authentic food, she wanted a dining experience that was traditional, non pretentious and relaxed. And it was just that. Set in beautiful Shepherd's Market, with outside tables, seating upstairs and down. We were sat downstairs and given a choice of two tables. Our drinks order was taken quickly and with a smile. The atmosphere was beautiful, like a real bustling Italian gem. I ordered a Margarita pizza, my partner ordered alio, olio e pepperonchino pasta and both were absolutely beautiful and traditionally cooked... just enough chili and plentiful amounts of garlic in the pasta and a satisfying doughyness to the pizza base and full flavor topping.
We ordered a side dish or rocket salad with Parmesan and weren't disappointed, the rocket was fresh and fragrant against the sharp Parmesan cheese.
I don't usually order dessert unless I eat out at an Italian and I have to try the Tiramisu... So we ordered one to share....my goodness I have NEVER tasted such a beautifully light Tiramisu in all my days.. the way it is supposed to be made, that no English restaurant can make. Absolutely 10 out of 10. Coffee was also beautiful.
We had a wonderful night, in the perfect restaurant with superb food and attentive but not intrusive waiting staff.
Thank you... we will definitely be back!
