Deep-fried olives with pork & herb stuffing. A strange but superb starter. The piping-hot, melt-in-the-mouth meat worked well with the flavour-packed olives.

Gnocchi with blue cheese cream & rocket salad. Well-prepared; not as stodgy as many versions elsewhere, though still not as fluffy as it could have been.

Spinach & ricotta cheese dumplings (malfatti) with butter sage sauce & parma ham. Hearty and heavy; best reserved for diners with voracious appetites.

Ossobucco (braised veal shank Milanese style) on a bed of saffron risotto. The rice was lacklustre, with little hint of saffron, but the marrow-filled veal was a meaty treat.

Chocolate mousse. A stunner; this might be the best chocolate mousse in the city. Spectacularly light, with a texture that could have been made in heaven. Combine that with a decadently rich cocoa flavour, and it's a recipe that we pray wasn't a fluke.

Tiramisu. Not bad, but rather ordinary in comparison to the mousse.
