We were drawn in by the cosy looking little place where some locals were eating. The menu looks good, but once we sat down and ordered it went downhill.
The bread was tasteless and stale. (To their credit, they did not charge for it) We ordered the Bistecca menu and two of the Chefs Recommendations, fried artichoke and tortelli with butter and truffles.
The artichoke was not fried, (I ordered it with visions of pan fried goodness bursting with flavour) but deep fried, oily tasting and not seasoned. The pasta was delicious, if not fresh. With butter and truffles you can't go wrong.
The bistecca was almost inedible. Well cooked (rare) with a nice charcoal crust and seasoned properly, it was tough and flavourless with a lot of sinew. The accompanying white beans lacked flavour also.
To their credit it was a warm, welcoming place on a cold night, and the house red wine was pleasant enough, and good value by the carafe. Service was friendly.
I think this would have been much more enjoyable if we had decided to have a bistecca experience somewhere else!
