Chef Stevie Parle’s two-year-old pasta specialist is a real “crowd-pleaser”, with “consistently interesting, extremely tasty” Roman-inspired dishes emerging from its “impressively visible kitchen”. It’s part of a “warehouse-style” Clerkenwell work-space, but “when busy you forget the office atmosphere which can otherwise be a little cold”. Top Tip – “cacio e pepe is to die for”.
“The simplicity of the dishes belies the amazing flavours that come off the plates”, according to the many fans of Stevie Parle’s popular yearling, where “authentic pasta” is the highlight of its Roman-inspired menu. Arguably “being part of an office space detracts from the atmosphere” but most reporters find its setting “calm and spacious”. Top Menu Tip: “divine cacio e pepe”.
Stevie Parle’s “hip, urban (and urbane) newcomer in trendy Clerkenwell” is one of his best openings yet. An “airy”, warehouse-y corner-site that’s part of FORA (a ‘pro-working’ space) – “once you get past the office-style reception”, the “incredibly friendly” service is “low key and efficient” and the “straightforward”, “authentically Roman” cooking is “delicious” and “surprisingly good value” too (“I thought the bill was wrong, it was so cheap!”).
