When you first walk into this pastel-coloured spot in Coal Drops Yard, it might be hard to accept that it’s a real restaurant rather than some form of pasta fantasy dreamed up by Italy’s answer to Martha Stewart, or someone high on Parma Violets. Between the mint green walls, cute retro deli feel, and excellent handmade pasta, it’s hard to resist this place’s charms. If you happen to work in the area, you’re in luck - at their deli counter you can buy everything from rich chocolate bombolino, made-to-order sandwiches, and £6 pots of a small selection of their pasta classics to go.
