    I'm a big fan of the pasta with cracklings and hot pepper app. It's simple but *delicious*. And I second the tandoori offerings - odd at first conceptually to have them in a mostly Italian joint, but good anyway.

      Of their pastas, I have to say that the pasta w/ cracklings is my favorite.

      Was there last week. Had the lamb - two very thick chops, medium rare, luscious. Lobster pizza excellent. Brussel sprouts side dish. The fish special- striped bass with eggplant and a very large prawn garnish. The garlic bread and naan are excellent- unless you want to pretend it is lobster, ask for the naan with minimum butter- otherwise it will have about half a pound on it. Excellent cocktails- chaiparina I had was really great.
      Happy Birthday and have a great time.

        Excellent bartending: a cocktail is a good start. Anything flatbread-based. The burrata dishes. Something with the house-made mozzarella. The pig chop.

        Skip the tagliata.

          Happy Birthday, hope you have a great time......

          Fav's

          Breads - elephant ear walking
          Aps - tandori scallops, fried artichokes, burrata BLT
          Mains - lobster, pig chop, chicken, quail (if you get the quail, I'd recommend having them leave the sabayon sauce off, it is not a favorite of mine)......if you get sides, their polenta is good

          Not so Fav's
          Their pastas
          Mains - cod scaloppini
