RON MACKENNA’S RECENT REVIEWS CONDENSED
The simplest dishes were the best with great arancini and a good plateful of Apulian classic

Queen Margaret Drive. There, the charm of Ester out front and Maurizio in the open kitchen built up a tidal wave of goodwill for the young couple. Lots of fingers are therefore crossed for this place. Really, they needn’t be: the food’s good. Different. The kitchen maybe still needs to relax and season more, and lose a few of those baby tomatoes.
But something new, brave and Italian, run by an Italian husband-and-wife team? Surely the magic restaurant recipe.
