Harden's survey result
It’s “always a delight” to visit this sleekly modern Italian duo in Chelsea and the City, which provide an “airy, relaxing escape from the fumes”. “Food and service are of a high quality”, and “there’s been a definite improvement over the last few years”. They’re “undoubtedly a bit pricey”, but “nothing is cheap in these areas”. The group has added a third venue, Canto Corvino, in Spitalfields (see also).
“If there were such a term as Rustic Italian Fine Dining”, it could be used to describe the style of these “delightful” modern Italians, located in Chelsea (“a lovely oasis just off the King’s Road with outside seating”); and the City (“good for impressing business visitors”). Both locations provide “a seasonal menu with quality ingredients” that’s “beautifully presented” but cost is an issue – the food seems “generally pricey for what it is”.
Although their prime locations – next to the Saatchi Gallery off Sloane Square in Chelsea and in the City – mean they are “not cheap”, these “good-natured” Italians provide a “solid” level of cooking and a “fun” atmosphere. Top Tip – lovely outside terrace in SW3.
The Chelsea branch of this Italian duo is “such a nice spot to sit out on a sunny day”, and EC2 provides “a peaceful escape from the City” – both are “pleasant”, with “unfussy” cooking.
