Time Out says
This small trattoria with its red checkered tablecloths is a true find for fans of real Italian food. In the kitchen, Marcello di Salvatore is a regular one-man-show: he cooks every pasta dish individually, producing fine spaghetti carbonara, bucatini all'amatriciana, gnocchi alla sorrentina and even some home-style meatballs in a tomato and bell-pepper sauce. The finishing touch should (must!) be a tiramisù – heavenly.
Time Out tips:
– Before the main course, an arugula, tomato, rocket and tuna salad is always served.
– The TV set is always tuned to Italian channels (parliamo italiano?).
