This review is taken from the 2012 edition.
This trattoria-style restaurant has an intimate but laid-back atmosphere – the wood-panelled interior creates warmth and the the service of beer from a barrel in front of the bar is a fun, quirky feature. To start, the seafood filo parcel has a nest of Scottish seafood rather strangely presented in the middle of four open layers of filo, which lets down the delicate buttery fish. While the range of platters look tempting, the chicken livers on crunchy toasted bread are excellent with the meat juicy and packed with flavour. From an inviting and diverse menu, osso buco comes with rich well-seasoned risotto and is a hearty but refined main, although the rabbit with polenta is a disappointment – oddly presented on a thick polenta patty, the meat isn’t tender enough and the gravy nondescript, lacking depth and flavour. Still, there's the excellent rum-soaked sweet bread with ice-cream to cheer the soul. A mixed experience showing promise but no consistency – leaving you wondering what could have been.
