Newcastle upon Tyne, England, United Kingdom
September 27, 2004
The decor is stylish, the walls a striking shade of burnt orange. You can be tucked away in a corner, but since an Italy soccer game was being shown on TV, we sat near the bar so we could join in with the cheering.
Meat eaters are spoiled for choice here; I plumped for a massive steak, which came lovely and bloody. Served with a well-dressed salad and fried plantains. My veggie partner was given specially made-up dish of emapanadas, salad, plantains, onion rings and loads more. Sadly, no fish is on the menu here.
The restaurant offers a very special house wine - one which was created specially to commemorate Diego Maradona, a massive hero in Naples for his part in the Naploi Serie A winning side. Being English, we declined, but had an alternative palatable red which was inexpensive.
