Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2014 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2013 edition.

An unlikely yet welcoming setting for relaxed Italian/Scottish dining, this cosy spot offers delicious cake, pasta and seafood house specials and a wealth of sandwiches made with freshly baked bread. There is a definite quirky charm to the premises, with menus scrawled on wall tiles and pots of soup simmering away in the background, and it attracts a steady stream of students, solo diners and families alike. Specials such as beef ravioli and mussels are made in small batches, while staples of the menu include substantial omelettes, sandwiches and toasted ciabattas. The bread, baked onsite each day, adds flavour and just the right amount of crustiness to the goat’s cheese and caramelised onion ciabatta, which is compellingly rich. Lemon drizzle cake, baked by co-owner Maurizio Rossini, is dense yet full of soft moistness, with a well-balanced sharpness. A gluten-free chocolate cake made with olive oil is another example of the great selection of cakes.
