An authentic and popular Sardinian restaurant on Lacey Road, Putney. There's a neighbourhood-restaurant feel to things here, so expect a friendly welcome and plenty of locals.
There's an emphasis on the dishes and produce of Sardinia, though other Italian regions feature too. Starters range from fresh artichoke salad with rocket and crisp parmesan to fresh crab salad, burrata on aubergine 'caviar' and bruschetta with n'duja sausage.
Pasta dishes such as pappardelle with wild boar ragu and tagliatelle with fresh tiger prawns and cherry tomatoes prove popular here. Third courses include Sardinian-style roast pork belly with borlotti beans and sautéed spinach, and pan-fried prawns with Sardinian cous cous and saffron.
The wine list concentrates on Sardinian bottles, though drops from Marche, Friuli, Tuscany and Piemonte also feature. The cocktail list has been designed by Kay Plunkett-Hogge - author of Make Mine a Martini, with classics alongside those paying further homage to Sardinia.
