MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The name of this delicious Hyde Park offering belongs to chef and owner, Nella Grassano, a classically trained pizzaiola. Together with her restaurateur partner, Francesco, the couple’s warm hospitality is the icing on the cake to an experience built around solid cooking. Favorite items include house-made pasta, laced with pristine ingredients and cooked to al dente perfection; or blistered Neapolitan pies, so fresh and authentic they’ll transport you straight to the Italian countryside. Don’t sleep on the starters though, like calamari affogati braised to perfection in a spicy tomato sauce studded with salt-brined black olives. Sop up the incredible sauce with Grassano’s lip-smacking bread, baked in-house and served warm from the wood-burning oven.
