Harden's survey result
“It’s best to book ahead at this ever-popular pit-stop, just off Highbury Corner” – a “fantastic, generous and fairly priced neighbourhood Italian”, which was the survey’s most commented-on destination in North London this year. “It’s probably the sheer simplicity of the decor and apparently happy waiting staff – coupled with a chatty clientele who appreciate the carefully curated ingredients – which make it such a consistent pleasure to visit”. “Despite the squashed and clattery interior, it manages to dish up really well-judged Italian cooking” – “simple classic dishes” (“not standard fare pasta and pizza”) – “and an utterly enjoyable evening”.
“Terrific food is simply but superbly realised (from a daily menu reflecting the freshest of ingredients)” at Tim Siadatan and Jordan Frieda’s “top drawer Italian” – “an unexpected find in this part of Islington” (“just off Highbury Corner”) – and it helps that “staff look like they enjoy their work”. “Downstairs is dark and sexy, especially the booths; upstairs is light and airy and great in the summer.”
“High-quality ingredients are left to speak for themselves”, at this “noisy” and “crowded”, “little bit of Puglia”, on “the wrong side of the Highbury roundabout” – an ongoing hit, with a “stunning Italian-heavy wine list”.
“A taste of Italy off Highbury Corner” – this “lovely” looking Italian continues to inspire north Londoners with its “simple”, “dreamily authentic” cooking and “an amazing wine list that’s both clever and good value”; some reports tip the ground floor over the basement.
