Pizza is Federico Blondi's strong suit. Along with his wife, Sandra, Blondi opened this colourful Italian spot in 2012. Originally from Umbria, the green heart of Italy, Blondi has made a big hit with his roscón pizza, named for its distinctive ring shape. Aside from the usual toppings, you can order this and any pizza to suit your cravings. One of the most popular is the scamorza (a smoked mozzarella) with potato and rosemary, and another is with Taleggio cheese, pear and rocket. Also highly recommended is the lasagna or 'all'amatriciana bucatini', thick and spicy spaghetti, made with the love of an Italian mother who thinks you're too thin – not to be missed. Book at weekends and for lunch as no one else wants to miss it either.
