This is a restaurant of the old school, driven from front-of-house, not back, with Lucio Galletto firmly in the driver's seat. It's Galletto, after all, who has cultivated the friendships with the dealers and artists whose works cram the restaurant's walls, and it's his personality and love of Storrier, Zofrea, Olsen and Sciberras that inform the experience here as much as the influence of Artusi or Boni. Anyway, the food is great regardless: an amuse-bouche of celery soup touched with parmesan oil is the perfect set-up for an entrée of fazzoletti, the buttery black handkerchiefs of pasta tossed with cuttlefish, prawns and a hit of chilli that would alarm the locals back in Liguria. Hapuku fillet is firm, paired elegantly with charry shreds of squid, parsley and celery leaf and (gasp) romesco. The wine list has heft, staff cut a dash through the room, and almond-milk panna cotta with peach closes things on an elegant note.
