Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
This charming Sardinian neighbourhood restaurant tucked away in East Sheen is the second branch from Isola del Sole - the popular original is off Putney High Street, just down the road.
There's a focus on the wines, food and produce of Sardinia, though some classic Italian dishes also make their presence felt. Starters include bruschetta al pomodoro, burrata served on aubergine 'caviar' and insalata di granchio - a crab salad with avocado and a fresh tomato sauce. Main courses range from home-made tagliatelle with tiger prawns and tomatoes to pappardelle with wild boar ragout, crab linguine and pancia di maiale e fagiole - Sardinian style pork belly with borlotti beans and sautéed spinach.
An exclusively-Italian wine list slants heavily toward Sardinia, complemented by bottles from Friuli, Piedmont, Marche, Veneto and Tuscany. Cocktails come courtesy of Kay Plunkett-Hogge, author of Make Mine a Martini, who has put together a selection of Italian-inspired mixes exclusively for Isola del Sole. Beers - Menabrea and Ichnusa - are both Sardinian brews.
