We’ve eaten there (see here) and had a delivery (see here) and given them favourable reviews. So when they sent us an email, advertising “apertivos and spuntini” (snacks), the suggestion seemed too good to pass up. I guess the idea is to get some early customers before the evening bookings and you don’t need to book. When four of us arrived on a Friday evening around 5:00 pm, we were the only ones there. We were pleased to see that masks were worn and they checked our temperatures on arrival.
We don’t often start drinking that early, even on a Friday, but we got into the swing of it. So we sampled a range of what was on offer, starting with an Aperol Spritzs, an Campari Spritz and a glass of wine (Feronia). The Campari got a repeat order; one of us opted for a Ginger Beer; and another couldn’t resist a Toffee Caramel Espresso Martini. Sweet, sweet, sweet.
It wasn’t just drinking – we also tried out the sputini, or snacks. The olives were olives, the pecorino biscuits were good and the summer truffle arancini (fried balls of flavoursome rice) were fantastic. We ordered two more portions.
It was a sunny evening and we needed cheeering up. We certainly felt better afterwards, although the cost that came in just under £80, including a tip, didn’t make it cheap. I’m sure we will be back, although it does feel more like a summer thing.
