“So unusual” and “romantic”, this “very suave candlelit basement” in the Old Town serves “top-quality Italian charcuterie and cheese, excellent pasta, fish and meat dishes, and an outstanding wine and drinks selection (primarily, but not exclusively, Italian)”. Opened in 2010, it is part of the local Vittoria group.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
