San Carlo Cicchetti

Posted on Posted in Eat Out, Recommended

UPDATE -- SEPT 18TH -- I'm back!! And this time we discover the most amazing scallops in London! Served with a shaving of truffle. We order a different pasta this time and a Parmigiana. This place will be high on the list for a while.

ORIGINAL POST - AUG 10TH -- I didn't know cicchetti are the Italian version of tapas but it was absolutely perfect as we were in the mood for something Italian but not overly hungry. There was an amazing buzz about the restaurant and we just felt excited about eating what was promising to be some authentic Italian cooking.  Next us sat a charming couple visiting from Italy who looked like they came straight off the set of 'La Grande Bellezza' who struck up conversation with us within five minutes of sitting. Italians raving about Italian cooking was justification we were in the right place. She did criticise my choice of Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe as she thought I might find it boring but it was amazing.  In addition we ordered black ravioli filled with crab and a tuna tartare prepared at the table.  Will definitely be back.  Miso recommend!!
