An Italian restaurant on Bermondsey Street opened by the folks at Maltings Cafe.
Solid unassuming food and very inexpensive (£30 for the stuff below plus a glass of wine).
Fairly light batter, a crispy foil to soft sweet butternut squash. A few leaves of sage that while welcome, could have done more to make their presence felt.
I liked how the succulent king prawns were carried by the tomato sauce, even if the sauce seemed a touch too concentrated at times, but the linguine with it was slightly too soft, I would have preferred a bit of textural backbone.
Grilled bass was soft and silky, very moist. An ok side of gently tangy artichoke (with a few very fibrous pieces).
Pleasant ice creams - a dense creamy vanilla, a similarly textured pistachio dotted with bits of the nut, and a very soft salty caramel.
I enjoyed the food at Maltings Cafe more, but will probably be back to try other things on their menu over time, since they just opened.
