Occupying a sunny spot on semipedestrianised Cowcross St, this sweet little place serves rustic Venetian-style meatballs, pizzette (small pizzas), grilled meat and fish dishes. Portions are larger than your average tapas but a tad smaller than a regular main – the perfect excuse to sample more than one of the exquisite dishes. Exceptional value for money.
