Get the potato gnocchi with pork and fennel sausage - there simply isn't a more skilfully executed version of the classic dish to be had in these parts. The top-notch technique applies equally to vitello tonnato: an abundant slick of excellent mayonnaise is the backdrop for perfectly pink veal ribbons, with slivers of green olive, little cubes of grilled eggplant and tiny capers. The adequate dolci menu doesn't deliver quite the same pleasure - yoghurt panna cotta with strawberries and biscotti is more satisfying than striking. 1889 Enoteca upholds the great Italian traditions of conviviality and simplicity with a good deal of class. It's apparent in the old-world charm of the historic building, along with the assured service. The Italian-focused wine list is a labour of love, charting co-owner Dan Clark's passion for artisans who create wine the old-fashioned way - with minimal technology and organically grown grapes. Drink deep.
