    The Guardian Says…

    ...brings something especially good from New York: a shameless approach to Italian food, a luscious aesthetic in which more actually is that little bit more...A tagliata – a seared and sliced steak – with roasted ceps and caramelised baby onions is one of the best pieces of meat I've had in London. The thin layer of fat across the top is salted and bronze-seared and running. The meat is crimson-knicker pink. You can pay an awful lot for good beef in the capital; £19 for this steak feels like a very good deal indeed.

    The Nudge Says…

    the real draw - in addition to the cheery, all-knowing Italian staff and the buzzy atmosphere (and it is buzzy) - is the quality and price of the food. Fresh calamari; flatbreads; hand-rolled pasta, ridiculously good pizzas and beef short ribs that melt off the bone: all to ME’s exacting standards, and all priced to match your local Italian.

    It’s worth perching on a stool and trying one of Cucina Asellina’s signature cocktails to start your evening. Try one of their classic Italian aperitif cocktails, including the Negroni with bitter Campari or the delicate Signora Asellina with limoncello and fresh raspberries. The wine list is predominantly Italian; the Salice Salentino Riserva is a little smoky and holds robust tastes of Southern Italy. Executive chef Marco Porceddu is Sardinian, so make the most of their featured Sardinian bottled beers.
