Lonely Planet review

Focussed on top-quality ingredients and artisinal producers, 'The Taste Room' offers a trendy ground-floor 'cheese bar', a more-formal restaurant upstairs, and a small basement provedore selling deli treats and wines. Frankly, the degustation menus aren't great value, with hit-and-miss 'modern Italian' dishes and patchy service. The 'cheese room', however, is utterly perfetto for get-in-the-know cheese, salumi (sliced cured meats) and vino sessions.
