The vibe might seem very loose at this rackety Soho bar, but the Italian-North African small plates are “surprisingly filling and delicious”. There’s also an “adventurous walk through the natural wine list” and the opportunity to select music from the vinyl selection.

“So hip, so uncomfortable, so cool it aches” – this funky Soho bar combines natural/biodynamic wines, Italian-North African small plates and sounds on vinyl. For fans, it’s a combination that “just makes me happy” – with its “delicious ingredient-led seasonal food, this place just gets better and better”. As for the “odd and cloudy” vino – “we were complete natural wine cretins and left knowing ever so slightly more, with a new favourite drink”.

A “go-to spot in Soho” serving natural and biodynamic wines by the bottle or glass alongside a hybrid menu of “delectable” Italian-North African dishes “that let the high-quality ingredients sing for themselves”. “Super-lively on a busy night” while also “laid back and relaxed”, it’s a “great place to hang out by yourself or go on a date”. Top Tip: “the drinking vinegars [true] are delicious and must be tried”.

For 31 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).
