Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

In a city whose Italian restaurants have a bad habit of stretching their menus across many pages the concise ‘carbs + corks’ concept of te Seba’s single-sheet offering is a breath of fresh air. Pasta and prosecco may well be the definition of ‘people pleasing’ – something that the bustling atmosphere of this applaudably affordable neighbourhood joint testifies to. The optional classic antipasti platter to kick things off is a standard but well-constructed board of cured meats, sharp cheeses and preserved veggies, but a bit stingy on the bread front. Wash it down with your choice of fizz – dry and creamy Riflessi DOC prosecco or one of numerous fruity Bellini concoctions such as elderflower or pear. On the pasta front, vegans will feel well-loved here with imaginative options including black olive, walnut and tomato crush doled up on silky egg-free pappardelle, while a spikey Italian sausage crumbled into cream and parmesan or the slow-cooked melting beef ragu stirred into fettuccine will sate any carnivore. With all generous bowlfuls of pasta priced at comfortably under a tenner and drinks maxing out at a fiver a pop, te Seba has worked out a winning formula.
