Wines by the glass
Service charge
Credit cards accepted

Ornate ceilings, art deco light fittings and an imposing staircase leading to a mezzanine gallery lend a 1930s pizzazz to this Italian in a former banking hall. The pace is full-on at lunch, while evenings are more chilled. This is food of simplicity and flavour.
