This new caffe-bar on Old Compton Street in Soho is also a wine bar. When we visited Tuscanic 'Merende' (‘merende’ meaning ‘snack’) in the opening weeks, we liked what was on offer: our mixed platter of charcuterie and cheese included slices of on-trend lardo and fennel-spiked salami; caprino (a hard goats’ cheese) with a rind of matted hay; and tiny glazed bowls of mild pickled onions and roasted artichokes.

We also sampled a mellow, comforting ‘bread soup’ (pictured), with its warming base of tomato-soaked crumbs; and a properly-made cappuccino.

It’s an attractive space, complete with designer-ish wood tables, a steel sink and retro meat-slicer, while the all-Italian staff are supremely genial. The shelves are groaning with swanky deli goods.

Amazing food real Italian flavours . One of the best places to eat Italian cuisine in London . Also what is really nice take away is available . You can buy almost everything what is on the menu and take it home . I will definitely come back there .


This place brought in Soho a small part of Tuscany. A truly and genuine wine list and small plate from just the Tuscany region. I've been there a couple of time already, and it's always superb as their Brunello, something you must try if you like wine. Definitely the best place to drink a glass of proper wine with the time and relax a good wine deserve.


they have the full wine licence!!!!!! amazing place!!!!!!!!!!
