THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Brackenbury Restaurant Review: This is the kind of restaurant every neighborhood should have, offering unpretentious, well-cooked meals at reasonable prices. Made from two small shops knocked into one, the restaurant front opens right up in the summer for al fresco dining. The interior is simply and informally decorated with plain wooden floors, banquettes and wooden tables. The atmosphere is humming with contented locals; book at least a week ahead. The menu, a mix of British with Italian influences, changes frequently. Antipasti at £4.95 for one or £9.59 for two kicks off a meal with a generous mix of breads, cured meats, olives, vegetables, mozzarella and herbs. Or go for beef carpaccio with Parmesan and asparagus and rocket or pan-fried king prawns. Pastas and risottos can be followed by fish or meat coming with all the trimmings. The wine list is well-judged and modest mark-ups ensure reasonable prices. Service is pleasantly casual. Mon.-Fri. set 2-course lunch £12.50, 3 courses £14.50.
