Smart City Italian in former banking hall

AA Inspector

At a glance

Wines by the glass
Service charge
Credit cards accepted

There's a hint of 1930s ocean liner about this Square Mile Italian, the former banking hall with ornate lofty ceilings, splendid light fittings and an imposing staircase leading up to a mezzanine gallery. The pace is full-on at lunch when City suits turn up for the mix of traditional and contemporary regional Italian cooking, while evenings are more chilled. This is food of simplicity, generosity and flavour. Open with beetroot carpaccio and Langhe goat cheese, squeeze in Tuscan sausage penne, and then set about baked sea bass with black rice and Pernod sauce. Desserts fit the bill, including Piedmontese chocolate pudding with amaretti.
