Da Scalzo

Art and food combine at this restaurant-cum-art gallery on Ecclestone Place, just down from Victoria. It's from Enzo and Rober Scalzo - the chaps behind the Pâtisserie Valerie chain - and its Grade II-listed setting certainly should be a good match for all the British art adorning the walls. 

As switched on sorts might infer, there's an Italian theme to the food here. Traditional, Neapolitan pizzas - made with Caputo Blue flour - are prominent, complemented by pastas, risottos and meatier mains such as sirloin steak with a green peppercorn and brandy sauce, and pancia di maiale cotta due volte - twice cooked belly of pork, with creamed potatoes and apple cider dressing.

Italian and Sicilian wines dominate on a list that that ventures to South Africa, Chile and the US, too. Peroni, London Pride, Leffe Blonde and Bud are the beers on offer. Keep an eye out for special events and live music - there's jazz every Friday night.

Perhaps Time Out ought to pay another visit to da scalzo, a lot can change in four years - as you know yourselves. I ate there recently when it was an 'Italian restaurant and live jazz venue' and where music, atmosphere, service and food were all excellent. I urge you to go again, take someone with you, girlfriend, kids, it it's got it all. (including best pizza in London, there I said it.)

Wonderful service provided by really professional staff. The food was outstanding and with a fantastic environment. Definitely a place to come back. Thank you Da Scalzo

I discovered Dascalzo about a year ago and was always very pleased both with the quality of the food and the service. It is a nice change for once to have some proper traditional hearty Italian food as oppose to the same (ish) menus and pizzas that most Italian restaurant chains have to offer in London. Thumbs up to the Dascalzo team. I'll come back!
