Funky modern Italian bistro good for cocktails, brunch or dinner.
This funky modern Italian bistro is good for many things: for sipping its namesake Bellini or your cocktail of choice during apéro hour; for snacking on a lip-smacking range of antipasti including dried Italian meats, mozzarella, calamari and tartar; for eggs florentine over the paper on a Saturday brunch-time; for a reasonably priced set lunch menu; or for lively dinner in a part of town that gets increasingly raucous at weekends. The food focuses on quality ingredients and the dishes are imaginative yet wholeheartedly Italian – lemon, ricotta and scallop ravioli, for example, or pesto, courgette and spinach risotto. Along with the food, the eclectic decor, trendy vibe and leafy outdoor terrace draw punters in, and it’s often packed.
