Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Please note, Acciuga has now closed. Time Out Food editors, MARCH 2020. 

This restaurant was formerly known as Timo. With excellent-value set lunches and smooth, ingratiating service, it is popular with local office workers, yet come evening it also works as a date destination. The pale décor is airily elegant, the tables well spaced and the atmosphere serene.

The menu comprises a concentrated selection of classics along with more unusual alternatives, so wild mushroom flan with black truffle dressing and quail’s egg might precede char-grilled rib-eye with rosemary, roast potatoes, rocket and parmesan shavings.

The dessert list isn’t particularly inspiring (tiramisù, pear and almond tart, ice-cream and sorbet), but there’s an enjoyable selection of Italian cheese (served with own-made walnut bread) for £8.50. There’s also a £2 surcharge if you fancy having a main-sized portion of pasta, which means the tempting tortelloni stuffed with sheep's ricotta and radicchio and cooked with thyme and butter rises to £12.90.

The wine list runs to over 175 bottles, with a handful under £20 and a fairly extensive selection under £30 as well as costly offerings from some of Italy's greatest producers.
