Been walking by this place for the last couple of months, was nice to see it open and gave it a whirl.
The arancini were well fried, little smaller than a ping pong ball each, the rice soft but not mush and a little sticky mleted cheese inside. "Spratti in saor" which contrasts the vinegary fish with the sweetness (and different tang) from pickled onions, over a slice of grilled bread. Both from the cichetti (essentially bar snacks, the term for tapas in Venice) section of the menu, which consists of small bites for that centre around £2 each. These two bites were probably some of best items I had there.
Polpette, meatballs in tomato sauce, were rather ordinary, the meat too coarsely chopped, the insides more lumpy than I would have liked. A pretty good and fairly concentrated tomato sauce, but nothing I would write home about.
Cuttlefish in it's own ink had a good salty inky oceany sauce, and was a generous portion, but the cuttlefish were a touch too soft for my taste.
Not bad grilled polenta, but not the best I've had (while it was not mushy at all, I was hoping for a shade less softness in the texture of polenta).
Pizzette bianco, what might be a thin, crispy piadina base for melted cheese and a light hint of herbs. Simple but good.
Mackeral tartare had good little cubes of mackeral (oily and fishy in a good way), but perhap a touch too much of their pickles and capers, A fairly subdued (horseradish?) cream did help bind the dish a little, and managed to ameliorate the excess acidity from the capers and pickles. Served with a crispy flatbread, a piadina, if I got it right.
A grainy slightly dry ciambella (an italian cake) with a chocolate sauce in a thin background of vanilla sauce. Nice but nothing special.
Pretty good on the whole, certainly nothing bad, but nothing earth shattering. Wouldn't mind eating there, but certainly not rushing back.
