My boyfriend and I made a reservation for our 2nd anniversary here, I, not having been there since I was interested in food, really enjoyed everything, and so did Jamie. I had the 'Deep fried Brie Wedges' (w/ cranberry compote) to start, he had 'Salmon & Cod Fish Cakes' (w/ sweet chili dip), both came with side salad of rocket, peppers, cherry tomatoes and balsamic dressing. The brie was perfectly creamy and the fishcakes were buttery and delicious, the accompaniments complimented the dish in all the right ways.
For the main, I had 'Penné Pesto Feta'- a creamy fusion of basil, parmesan, feta and olive oil. I always make lots of Italian based pasta dishes at home and rarely find one in a restaurant that I like more than my own, but this is one of them :) Jamie had the 'Tagliatelle Salmone'- tagliatelle in a creamy tomato sauce with smoked salmon strips with a fillet of salmon poached in white wine placed on top! The salmon was moist, the sauce was creamy and the flavours came together brilliantly The waitress asked us both if we wanted any parmesan or pepper (we both had extra parmesan)
We both took our mains home with us because we could not resist a dessert (I am enjoying it and reminiscing while I'm writing now)
We both had the Tiramisu for dessert. It was just the right balance of rich, velvety coffee flavour with the creamy mixture and chocolate savings and chocolate sauce drizzled on top. Served with a choice of homemade ice cream or whipped cream, Jamie had ice cream and I had the latter. We both consumed the whole plate of it despite our increasing fullness.
We had a delightful smiley waitress, the service was very quick, we were in and out in 2 hours.
The meal without drinks was £37.50 which is very affordable for 3 courses with a side, it was £48.05 with drinks (lovely large glass of full bodied red, a bottle of Peroni and 2 J20s).
This restaurant was what Italian food is all about- simple, fresh ingredients, brilliantly melded flavours :)
