three water rats (those who’ve been to the wondrous de la guarda will know) turned up without res. Invited, still dripping, to wait. None of this "thanks for choosing [fill in narcissistic self-naming] tonight" nonsense here. Humans treated with respect and courtesy, how novel. Barman lent over and asked if we’d like a glass of wine while we waited and hoped there would be a no show. pinot grigio good. Yes, it was our lucky night, a table in their garden.

A’s: Special, venison with some pasta. a tender stew. also on offer as a main. Beef carpaccio with wafer thin raw mushrooms, parmesan, lemon, pine nuts. Fried polenta with mushrooms.

M’s: absolutely fantastic boar with polenta. spaghetti with prawns (head still on, flavor intact) and mussels. pasta with sausage.

magic. the rain pounded on the roof. de la guarda part 2, only with food.
