London, United Kingdom
August 14, 2003
Located close to the heart of the capital, and open day and night throughout the week, except for Sundays and public holidays, it is a convenient spot to visit when either hungry or thirsty. At the rear is a fairly small bar area that is somewhat aesthetically reminiscent of a Mediterranean café where hot beverages and also cooler drinks, both alcoholic and soft, are available. Meanwhile, the slightly more rustic and bigger section closer to the entrance contains dining tables. The menu follows an Italian theme, featuring reasonably priced and decent quality pizzas and pasta dishes. In addition, the members of staff are friendly and efficient, and there is a nicely relaxed atmosphere.
However, it is especially noteworthy for the selection of wines that occupies a significant proportion of one wall, which is can either be drank on the premises or taken away. It features a quite typical range of international bottles, alongside numerous offerings originating in Liechtenstein. The output of the local vineyards, including those owned by the ruling prince, is an important part of both the economic and social life in the country, and is not more highly regarded elsewhere only because national demand leaves nothing to export. The reds are usually the best bet, but decent rosés and whites are not uncommon.
