FOOD & WINE

THE MENU: A PHRASEBOOK IN MINIATURE, CONTAINING A TASTE OF THE TWENTY MAIN DIALECTS OF ITALIAN CUISINE

 

Our menus are changed every day - twice a day - as we try to keep up with the changing seasons.

 

"If I'm sounding excited by the food, you should have seen... the wine list" - Richard Vines - BLOOMBERG

 

Our wines all say 'Salute!' - 'To your health!' - and are sourced with a great deal of care and attention. As with the food, we seek out familiar favourites and obscure gems. All our wines are Italian, and we consider each to be a prime example of its type, and each to offer great value for its price. The list is not exactly short, but Italy is home to over 500 varieties of grape. 

 

We update the menu below once a week, as a guide to our seasonal produce, and apologise for any discrepancies when you visit.
