Just when you thought it couldn't get more Italian, Tartufo hives off a slice of its high-ceilinged dining room, installs a wood-fired oven, and offers authentic Neapolitan pizza goodness. Slatted wooden screens now demarcate the ristorante, with its mosaic-tiled floors, dark wood, red-leather banquettes and butcher's paper over linen-topped tables. Start with a creamy baccalà fritto, six crunchy salt-cod balls, topped with a tart lemon mayonnaise, and, perhaps, a glass of pinot grigio. There's an abundance of Euro temptation (plus home-grown Italians) on this list. Smartly dressed floor staff are happy to offer sharing plates, and portions are big-hearted, particularly house-made pasta entrées and the rustic roast porchetta with crackling, jewel-like mustard fruits and white polenta. Choose wisely or risk having to forgo the likes of nougat-studded semifreddo with crostoli squiggles and spicy pear purée.
