The menu here includes a selection of artisanal homemade pastas and other savoury dishes, which include the soft and chewy grilled octopus accompanied by crispy egg and corn. Ribbons of tagliolini with scampi and smoked paprika offer a complex, spicy taste with a smoky flavour. Fettuccine with crab, prosecco and salmon roe is richly indulgent and slightly briny but sweet. Pork chop Milanese with Parma ham sauce is a house speciality—tender, juicy, meaty and well-seasoned. The well-composed wine list boasts a wide selection of labels, especially from Italy, with informative guidelines and staff well-versed with the menu.
