TATLER TIPS

There’s a lot for veg­e­tar­i­ans and nu­mer­ous sig­na­ture dishes that take in clas­sics such as osso bucco along with a few sur­prises.

There are piz­zas and pas­tas ga­lore, but it’s the risot­tos that are per­haps the most wor­thy of in­ves­ti­ga­tion. Try the risotto nero, with squid ink pro­vid­ing the drama and cit­rus flavours en­hanc­ing the nat­u­ral suc­cu­lence of lob­ster and squid. Din­ers look­ing for the more stan­dard risotto should check out the sig­na­ture ver­sion with porcini mush­rooms. The restau­rant is jus­ti­fi­ably proud of its tiramisu ‘1956’, where Illy coffee makes all the dif­fer­ence. Those who can re­ally han­dle a dra­matic end may be up to this lay­ered ver­sion of tiramisu com­bined with pan­na­cotta and choco­late mousse. A truly grand fi­nale.
