Hi Chowhound,

Going this Fri (April 20) for DH's birthday (just the 2 of us) at 6pm and hoping to find out from you all if there are any must-orders. Am a pasta person more than a meat person so thinking about "
Fazzoletti (pasta handkerchiefs) with broad beans, basil & Pecorino" b/c from previous reviews here sounds like something simple they'd do well. Limster remarked that the fritti were a bit overdone, so a bit wary of those - anyone have good experiences? Has anyone ordered the pre-theatre 'one-pot meal' specials?

They don't seem very seasonal if they have the same salad on the menu now -
Radish & celeriac salad with pomegranates, pecorino Romano & truffle oil - that Limster reviewed in a Nov 2008 post.

I'm a NYC expat who's been in London 4 years - haven't had much Italian here, but love the simplicity of Lupa and Babbo back in NYC.

Also, are the plates tiny? Also thinking of Crescentine (fried flatbread from Bologna) with prosciutto sardo & squacquerone cheese; Veal tongue, peara (bread & bone marrow 'polenta') home-candied mostarda & salsa verde; Octopus braised with peas, spring onions & basil.

Even if the menu changes between now and Fri, it's the categories of dishes I'm interested in. Thanks! Will report back.
