Dear Michelle Thank you for your review. The description of the events on your side are very colourful and untruthful, especially the part of abuse and assault - verbal or physical. I do recall your daughter entering the premises, disregarding the staff despite being asked...More

Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
time wondering through the area's maze of streets and
you might become accustomed to the litany of slinky

Bàcaro is derived from the Latin word 'Bacchus' which is the God of wine and intoxication and is the Venetian word to describe a humble unpretentious tavern or trattoria serving simple food and good, young local wines.They are typically a great meeting place for locals and friends and represent a wonderfully relaxed, convivial and simple environment where walking through the threshold leads you to live a completely authentic Italian experience.The menu is inspired by original Venetian and regional Italian recipes. There is no compromise in the dishes, and the unusual ingredients on the menu are not often seen outside their traditional region in Italy.Cichèto is derived from the Latin word 'ciccus' meaning 'littlest quantity', a delicious, mouth-watering titbit appetizers. A simple menu of cichèti is offered along with the traditional 'ombra', a small tumbler of wine drunk at the shadow of San Marco's Campanile (tower bell) from the most exclusive wine list.The 'aperitivo' takes place following the Venetian tradition to drink an 'ombra' or a Prosecco Spritz with Campari or Aperol accompanied by cichèti.
