Smolt manages to be most things to many people. With its welcoming, mid-century-modern interiors, you can duck in for a mid-morning coffee, meet at the communal table for a post-work or post-MONA glass of wine from the well-considered list and a small plate or two (the cheese and leek arancini are a knockout), or pop in for a sneaky dessert (dense chocolate marquise with snow-white coconut sorbet, say). Settle into a banquette for some hearty fare for dinner, where the flavours are big and so are the portions - char-grilled chicken is smokily good, its corn purée an excellent foil, or try the earthy nuttiness of quinoa and walnut tomato salsa. Pizza may not adhere to Italy's classical standards, but the base of ours is just-right chewy and laden with quality ingredients, its salty, crisp pancetta, creamy mozzarella and brassica flavours of cavolo nero playing together nicely. Purism be damned.
