A perfect nuance of sweetness in the savoury chicken liver spread on grilled bread.

A cloud of fennel hangs over the juicy bits of sausage, together with crisply chopped spinach, also presented as a bruschetta option.

In the Caprese, satisfactory mozarella and tomato, pitch perfect sprinkle of herbs, brilliant green whiff of basil.

Gnocchi are firm but light and tender, a rich emerald pesto with a strong garlic accent.

Tagliatelle, crinkled on the edges, are precisely al dente, a pleasant chewy resilience. A clovey ragu, meaty and tomatoey.

Pancetta gives a crisp savoury and smokey touch to a tomato based sauce that coats a dish of penne.

Evocative honeycomb tripe, ribbons of snappy ripping deliciousness with no heavy flavours, a balanced tomato sauce.

A warm tomato and cream cloak on a dish of chicken.

Tiramisu carries a good background of coffee, a rich creamy blanket of mascapone, and moist but not soggy cake layers.

Heartwarming food, skillfully and carefully rendered, a kitchen with just the right touch.
