    Modern take on classic Italian dishes. So much good food (and wine) here. Be sure to have the truffle special, heavy hand on the truffle shave makes this well worth it.

    This seabass carpaccio is to die for. Smothered in pickled chillies and Zucca's brilliant olive oil...

    Try the prosciutto ham starter, amazing! The menu is really limited and if you don't fancy anything they will cater to your request.

    Disappointed. It's good but not that good. In the same vein we prefer the Union Street cafe. Food was good but not inventive. Venue is like my own dining room so nothing special.

    Separate vegetarian menu which was a rare treat (just ask), delicious ribollita worthy of Tuscany (although bread wasn't stale enough), open kitchen so expect to smell a bit foody afterwards.

    Lovely staff and allergen menu at the ready. We had the squid bruschetta and the mussles to start, and the swordfish and the ox cheek ragu - all phenomenal flavours and cooked to perfection.

    The zucca fritti was good but slightly salty. The veal ravioli was tasty but portions were terribly tiny for the price!

    Sat at the bar which isn't terrible. Best fritters. There was a linguini special which was to die for! Main had duck and the gnocchi! Superb! The chocolate ice cream with caramel sauce topped it off

    Only one vegetarian dish - vegetable tagliatelle. Really expensive and pretentious. The pasta was extremely salty. When I complained the waiter said "oh sorry to hear that". That's it.

    They always have 2 recommended wines. I always get a bottle of the red as I know it will be good and it makes me try something different.

    If there are 1 or 2 of you ask to eat at the bar. Great fun watching the super efficient chefs at work. Also, bar may be free if all tables are booked.

    Starter are better than main, main course just not special enough, can easily cook the same thing at home.

    remember to ask for the specials, they're not well advertised, and try to share as many anti-pastas as you can

    There's a warm, smiley greeting, almost absurdly low prices and a short menu of simple, ingredient-led dishes that's the antithesis of cheffy indulgence. Metro gave it 4 out of 5 Stars. Read more
