Just off Highbury Corner, Trullo is a cracking little place, the setting for honest, ingredients-driven modern Italian cooking and a menu that changes with every sitting. Antipasti run to full-bore ideas such as ox tongue with agretti and anchovy, then follow with pasta - the signature pappardelle with beef shin ragù is a fine example of Italian comfort food done well. The charcoal grill adds a smoky edge to sea bass served with a lively salad of purple beetroot, lamb's lettuce and pistachios, or the oven might offer up rabbit leg braised with pancetta and shallots, and matched with baked cannellini beans. Finish with excellent almond tart and poached rhubarb.
