Time Out says

This restaurant and bar tucked away down Artillery Lane, in Spitalfields, is from the guys behind the Manicomio restaurants. It's a big, chunky, industrial looking space with a long open kitchen and a walk-around bar that should both prove talking points. 

The food menu is authentic Italian, but with more than a nod to the new. That means dishes such as swordfish cooked on a Josper grill and served with baby squid and panzanella, Old Spot pork belly with artichokes, onions and salsa verde, yellow fin tuna and tomato poke with charcoal oil, and burnt octopus with nduja sausage, potatoes and padron pepper. 

A breakfast menu also features, as does a brunch menu offering morning cocktails such as a breakfast martini with strawberry marmalade, raspberry vodka, lemon juice and apple juice, and a bloody maria, with tequila, tomato juice and bloody mary mix. Twenty wines are available by the glass - all Italian.

I went to Canto Corvino last weekend for brunch, as I have tried pretty much all brunch places around Shoreditch, I was surprised I had never been there before. The full Italian breakfast was of great quality, special mention for the sausage and the Italian salami but I felt that it was really overpriced for what it was and coffee was quite bad. I was not feeling full after the brunch but seeing the price of the desserts I decided to stop there. Nice venue but should adapt prices to what is charged in other venues around.

Came here to try the set dinner menu at gbp22.5. We had the burrata and aubergine starter, I love burrata but I didn't quite like this version. Mains were a choice of duck or sea bream. I had the duck which was tasty though wasn't blown away by it. Ended up sharing a dessert outside of this menu, salted caramel chocolate cake. It turned out to be the best dish of the night. The presentation was fantastic and it was absolutely stunning. Service was great, there is a nice bar beside the restaurant which I think is worth checking out.

I would say it's reasonably priced if you get the set dinner and it's a nice place with good service For a night out and Definitely try the desserts.

Third addition to the group, this is an elegant Italian restaurant tucked away on Artillery Lane. Having arrived at 9 pm, nothing was too much trouble for this new restaurant. Our antipasti of burrata with anchovies and culatello were absolutely divine. The primis with duck tortellini and chicken brodo with capellini were wonderful; cooked with just the right amount of flavours and texture. The portions are not huge leaving one with enough appetite for secondis if you were still hungry or in our case desserts. Our poached pears tasted lovely leaving a sweet but not too heavy feeling after a meal. It came so beautifully presented with flowers that it leaves us wondering if we have gone to dessert heaven.
