So, to the food. My Casareccia Ragu consisted of marvellous homemade al dente pasta tubes with an extremely rich ragu nestling slow cooked melt in the mouth beef chunks. The only gripe was portion size, which was fairly meagre (in spite of the richness of the dish) – no wonder the Italians sitting around us are all so skinny. The seabream chosen by my dining partner was extremely fresh though unfortunately a fraction over done, it was served with a generous rocket salad and, in true Italian style, without a hint of carbs on the plate.
I would highly recommend this restaurant – whilst the food is in no way adventurous it has obviously been cooked with great passion and using fresh ingredients. The bustling atmosphere, knowledgeable staff and proximity to Shoreditch High Street mean it will surely be a success – it is an ideal place for a leisurely, if not gluttonous, weekend lunch.
