This restaurant is on the first floor of the Queen Victoria building, so "sitting outside" means inside QVB! But that is a picturesque location.
The food here is genuinely Italian in concept,so some might find it a challenge. But its well worth it. The menu is fairly short and changes every few months (probably depending on what is in season).
We started with bruschetta spread with an artichoke cream, and a light salad of prawns and whole squid.
For mains, my partner had a steak in north western style, on a wonderfully aromatic fresh pesto. The ingredients were clearly hand-chopped or lightly blended, not pounded to bits in a blender as so often happens. The iridescent green of the basil highlighted the white of garlic and pine-nuts. I had a chestnut gnocchi with a cheese from southern Italy that filled the mouth with unusual flavour.
