We're off to Central Italy and Tuscany next week for February's regional dinner on Tuesday 27th.
Tuscan cuisine, firmly rooted in simplicity and quality of the ingredients is a favourite of Stevie's we've put together the below menu for the night. We start off with three toasts, each topped with something tasty, artichoke should be good. Next up there's a choice of Rabbit ragu, Pici pasta al pomodoro or Ribolita - a typical peasant stew made with cavalo nero and lashings of the local olive oil.
For the main event there's a great dish of fagioli beans stewed with pork sausge, a tomato and fish stew Cacciuccio that's served with bread and olive oil and Sformata, a plate of baked ricotta that's flavoured with nutmeg. For desserts there's a wicked choclate cake, Cantucci (the Tuscan answer to biscotti) and Pecorino cheese with Tuscan flatbreads.
Tuscany is the third largest producer of wine in Italy and we'll be sure to have some nice varieties of Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano on the list for the night too. Plus a superb Vin Santo wine to pair with the dessert.
As always the dinner will be £28 per person to and includes all anti-pasti and desserts to share across your table.
Dinner starts from 6pm with bookings available until late. To make a booking please call us on 020 7249 9081 or book online HERE

We're ending January on a high with a 4 course dinner celebrating the region of Lombardy in Northwest Italy. Set with Milan as it's capital and no coastline to speak of, the food from this region is typified by rice, maize, meats, cheeses & butter - all the good stuff basically.
Tuesday 30th January, from 6pm
Similar to all Italian cooking, Lombardy has tons of variety to it and so we've put together a menu that we think best represents the region as a whole - there's two superb hand rolled pastas, one served in brodo broth, a poached fresh bream dish from Lake Como, Osso Bucco served with saffron risotto alla milanese, Taleggio cheese coming from the southern plains, and a delicious nougat dessert, Torrone hailing from the riverside town of Cremona.
As always the dinner will be £28 per person to and includes all the anti-pasti and desserts to share across your table. You can book in groups of all sizes which also includes our large sharing table seating up to 20 people at no extra cost. Dinner starts from 6pm with bookings available until late.

Our Roma regional dinner sees us take on Palatino at their own game and we think we've well and truly nailed the menu for this one with stacks of great dishes to try.
Cacio e pepe - made with Tellicherry pepper - and our version of Bucatini all'amatriciana both feature and we've got a great selection of antipasti too with grilled artichokes, suppli (mini arancini) and an intriguing mini Porchetta amongst other things.
Mains include Veal saltimbocca cooked with pancetta & Marsala wine and the classic dish of Gnochhi alla Romana - if you haven't tried this before you really should.
Desserts will be plentiful and include those fantastic Maritozzi buns alongside ice-creams and a superb baked ricotta tart - all available to share across the table.
As always, it's just £28 for all four courses of food.
