Casa Frattini

The graffiti on the walls is long gone and what remains is superb Italian food. The menu, restarat and kitchen are all small, but no complaints because the execution is beautiful. The food is genuinely superb and the staff friendly.

The only downside is that the limited size means if you get a loud obnoxious group of people in they will dominate the entire room. So be careful if you are booking for a quiet dinner that that's what you will get.

Went for dinner on a Thursday night with a group of ex-colleagues. The decor and atmosphere were spot on, comfrotable and relaxed. The menu looked good, a short but well choosen selection of dishes. So it was a shame that the food let everything down. The steak was far to tough and seemed to exhibit no difference between those that had asked for rare or medium. The braised beef was equally disapointing, well cooked but ultimately a flavourless piece of meet. As someone else commented on this site, you would expect an old butchers shop to source their meat with a little more care!

The wine list is reasonably priced, although not putting regions on the French wines means that a working knowledge of provinceal French towns is required if you don't want to just rely on the descriptions.
