An Italian restaurant on Old Compton Street, with a menu going big on polenta.
When this Old Compton Street venue launched back in late 2013 it was one of a few restaurants at the time with single-item menus – in this case, polenta. It recently gave its menu a bit of a rejig to incorporate pasta dishes, though sweet and savoury polenta dishes still reign more or less supreme. It remains gluten-free.
Expect dishes such as polenta with asparagus, egg, scamorza cheese and truffle oil, and polenta gnocchi with truffle cheese, butter and sage alongside a flan of mustard cheese and speck, a courgette box with pickled shallots, and homemade beef ravioli with balsamic reduction, pine nuts and raisins.
Desserts include tiramisu, the La Polenteria cheesecake and a polenta crépe with macadamia nuts. The wine list is exclusively Italian, with every bottle available by the glass.
