“Tucked away in Marylebone, with a friendly vibe and tasty food”, this creative outfit marries flavours from Spanish, Italian and Japanese cuisine. “Some of the tapas are very good indeed”, and they are supported by a serious wine list focused on Spain and Italy.

“Fantastic food and professional service” combine at this Marylebone tapas bar, where Amalfi-born chef Eduardo Tuccillo creates a ‘connubio’ or marriage of Mediterranean flavours, drawing broadly on Spain for the meat dishes and his native Italy for vegetables. If choosing is tricky, there is a range of tasting menus to ease ordering.

“Really enjoyable” is the general verdict on this “creative” (if “slightly cramped”) Marylebone tapas bar with a ‘twist’ – the twist being that the dishes are not Spanish but a marriage, ‘connubio’ in Italian, of different cuisines – hence the recent re-launch (it was founded seven years back as Twist at Crawford).

“Very surprisingly delicious, every mouthful – way beyond expectations” – Eduardo Tuccillo’s tucked-away Marylebone venture (on the site that ages ago was Garbo’s, RIP) is arguably “very underrated due to its location” in a “so-loud, as it’s so-small” two-floor space. But while it feels “too casual to be a very special night out, the food and service can’t be beaten”: “a different approach with tapas that aren’t just Spanish” delivering “some inspired food combinations”. “On the pricey side, but consistently well worth it.”

For 33 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).
