Italian | Chelsea | Won't break the bank

It’s not new, it’s not fancy and it doesn’t rely on social media to pull in the crowds (though some casual tweeting here and there never hurts). It doesn’t matter – Italian cooking of this quality doesn’t usually come with such a reasonable price tag (perhaps with the sole exception of Zucca and we know what it’s like trying to get a table there). The place is part-owned by Giorgio Locatelli  and that’s a stamp of approval if ever there was one. The decor is pared down, but not intimidatingly edgy, service is professional and friendly without being obtrusive and this place is jampacked every night of the week. Oh yeah, and the food – well that speaks for itself. We recommend digging into as many cicchetti as your waistband will allow, allowing room for hefty portions of the homemade pasta too. Burrata with tomato bread is a triumph of creamy deliciousness and nettle pasta with duck ragut is a beautiful-looking plate of hearty goodness. Portions are on the generous side, particularly for the price and the wine list is also pretty good value for this part of town.
