Fodor's Review

Top-notch southern Italian cuisine in a gleaming modern glass-sided shoe box of a restaurant characterizes the lively business-heavy dining scene here near Bishopsgate. Wavy-haired magnificoItalian chef Francesco Mazzei draws inspiration from Sicily, Puglia, Sardinia, and Calabria and prowls the modern high-ceilinged bar, floor, and clear-fronted kitchen like the proud owner he is. With its clean lines, soft music, and distinctive white leather seats, you'll find fresh, simple, and restrained Italian dishes like wild mushroom and black truffle tagliolini and Sardian fish stew, or incredible crispy fritto mistofish strips that have been soaked in milk and dipped in double-zero flour. The baccalà salt cod with crimson-color n'dujaCalabrian sausage is awesome, too. Well-crafted desserts, like ricotta mousse with spicy figs, are bellissimo, and the winning wine list is mostly Italian.
