Time Out Says
The menu here is inspired by Italy’s diverse regions, from Lombardy and Tuscany to Campania and Sicily, meaning there’s a lot on offer across the five-page menu.
We’re in a carb-hungry mood, but there’s also a selection of meats, fish and salads. We start off with the Parmesan-stuffed ravioli di spinaci, which has a delicate hint of truffle and is presented with each pillow of pasta carefully placed on a bed of rich sauce.
The pizzas, which are baked in the restaurant’s wood-fired oven, are also a hit.
The calzone is packed full of a tasty mix of ricotta, mozzarella and spinach in a portion so generous that we struggle to finish it. The quattro formaggi, which is deliciously cheesy with a pungent blue kick, has a perfect base with a crust that’s thin but not overly crunchy.
The Parmesan is also among the best we’ve tasted, to the point that we have to restrain ourselves from eating it by the spoonful.
You won’t want to go to Solo solo – because the delicious portions are so big that you’ll probably want to share them – but we won’t judge you if you do.
