Bright, minimally styled Edera provides a haven from the busy traffic of Holland Park Avenue. Well-off locals come here for simple yet elegantly presented Italian fare with a Sardinian bent. Prices seem to have been tailored to the upmarket neighbourhood, with several prestigious bins on the wine list reaching the £600 mark, and a truffle degustation menu set at £100 a head. But choose from the specials menu, and the remarkable selection of wines by the glass, and the expense can be contained. Sea bream ravioli with creamy artichoke sauce came with a generous sprinkling of black truffle shavings; at £12 it was better value than simpler pasta dishes on the menu, which are similarly priced. The dessert selection spans the usual tiramisu and sorbets to a quirky concoction of hazelnut ice-cream and black truffle, which will set you back £20. If they’re available, we recommend trying the exquisite sebadas: Sardinian cheese-filled puff-pastry parcels drizzled with honey. Service is attentive, but can be a bit sullen at times. Although Edera’s pavement tables are very tempting in fine weather, they’re only a few steps away from heavy, noisy traffic and exhaust fumes.

Inept negligent waiters serving crudely presented dishes of uneven quality. No one questioned why my guests left their dishes largely uneaten. So I reckon the waiters already realise the kitchen is incapable of dealing properly with an unacceptable dish. The prices are commensurate with a top flight restaurant. Which therefore makes this place a rip-off. I guess there are a lot of people in Holland Park with more money than sense, so it might take a while for this place to close down
