This smart independent Italian next to the Orange Tree Theatre has built a loyal local fan base, who come for its lively vibe and straight-talking contemporary cooking. There's a decked terrace out on the pavement, and inside it's all bare floorboards, colourful artwork, and convivial elbow-to-elbow tables. Among starters, you might encounter king prawns with sautéed Sardinian fregola and sun-dried tomatoes, and pasta is freshly made in-house every day, appearing as twisted tubes of casarecce with slow-cooked wild boar ragù. Mains deliver basil and lemon-roasted cod with caponata, or perhaps calves' liver in sage butter. Tiramisù is always a good way to finish, or there's vanilla pannacotta with mango coulis.
