The likes of fettuccine sauced with smoked tuna belly and tomato, or a classic spaghetti carbonara, al dente and rich with house-cured pork, is about as good as pasta gets in the national capital. But there's more going on at Italian & Sons than noodles. There's stunning focaccia fresh from a wood-fired oven, for one thing, and pizze that embody the less-is-more school of toppings. But carb-loading comes at a cost when there's so much of interest in the antipasti selection: crisp school prawns with aioli, say, or a carpaccio of beef that's punchy with salsa verde. Desserts are no afterthought, either - the panettone bread-and-butter pudding alone is worthy of a visit. Service is as confident as the kitchen's offerings, and a wine list of regional Italian depth wins plaudits. The rooms might be noisy, but their look is very much of a piece with the urban hip (car wash, used-car lots and all) of the up-and-coming Braddon neighbourhood.
