Italia Nostra is a pleasantly decorated room with an open kitchen. It features a beamed ceiling, attractive coloration, oil paintings, a few prints, and nice lighting. The tables are well covered and well lit.
The menu is huge, with a range of antipastos, minestre, fish, pizza, carne, pasta, and sweets. The wine list tends to be expensive.
We found the room busy, the service attentive, and the patrons happy. We chose pizza margherita to start, and both of us ordered spaghetti carbonara. It was all excellent. The house red was an inexpensive Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, not the best, but passable at £11.
All said, it was a great evening. I would do it again in a second.
