Offering premium and inventive gourmet cuisine, this restaurant is relaxed yet very stylish. The name references the start of Italy's baroque period, but the decor is early 20th-century retro, with low-wattage filament lamps and Charlie Chaplin–era movies playing on designer-stark walls beside the six-stooled centre-stage cocktail bar.

Creative skewer snacks arrive in Chemistry-lab beakers, flavour packed 'skinny pizza' starters perch on long thin slabs of slate, and scrumptious herb-seared cottage cheese is served on lemon potatoes with a pepper coulis so good you'll want to lick the plate.
