Italian in Southern Canal Ring

Pastini serves up Italian-infused dishes such as tagliatelle with stewed lamb, tomato, aubergine and parmesan. Authentic starters include fried courgette, cured meats and arancini (fried rice balls). It has a prime location at the meeting of two canals, jewel-rich Renaissance-style paintings and a cosy-yet-elegant interior that makes you want to linger.
