This is a late review as have been waiting for Mauro to send me the Tonnarelli recipe he promised me but despite requesting it in both Italian & English I am still waiting - please Mauro !!!
The restaurant is quite difficult to find being not in the CBD & down an alley . Our dinner was a birthday treat from our son in London as he had tried it the previous year & had really enjoyed it .
Mauro explains all the menu items & the wines to you personally & is very passionate & enthusiastic re the ingredients & their origins. He takes time to ask you about wines you enjoy & to pair them with the food you choose - there is no wine list . If you do not like his choice he will give you others to try . Wines are very reasonably priced as in fact the entire menu . As previously mentioned the Tonnarelli with bacon was delicious -I am not a pasta fan ( a crime in Italy ! ) & it was by far the most fresh & delicious I have ever had .
The restaurant is not large but provides very good value & is recommended . Our charming waitress Katya was friendly & efficient ( & run off her feet whilst Mauro was busy charming the customers & explaining the food !) - they provided a good balance to each other & it worked well . The menu changes weekly . A complimentary Limoncello at the end of the meal is a nice touch too .
