Describing itself as a modern family-run basement trattoria, sums this restaurant up well.
Expect well-cooked pasta dishes - such as 'Fregola with Roast Squash, globe artichoke & Seirass Ricotta' and 'Tagliatelle with Beef Ragù' - suitable for either starters or mains. Plus pure starters - such as 'Coppa Mantovana with Heirloom Tomatoes & Carasau Bread' and 'Chestnut, Curly Kale & White Bean Soup & Pecorino Romano'.
Mains, such as 'Roasted Rack of Pork with Sicilian Caponata'; 'Pollack & Mussela Stew with Chick Peas & Saffron'; 'Roast Baby Chicken with Sweet Red & Green Peppers' and 'Charcoal-Grilled 28-day-aged T Bone Steak alla Fiorentina' set the style.
Puds aren't forgotten, with perhaps 'Tiramisu'; 'Orange Cake with Goat's Ricotta Cream & Clementine Sorbet' and 'Warm Chocolate Fondente with Vanilla Ice Cream & Praline Crunch' on offer.
Friendly, enthusiastic service.
