is the homely inner-east creation of Penny and Attilio Gissi, a slice
of Northern Italian hospitality which is packed and active in summer,
and a cosy little refuge in winter. The aromatic scent of good solid
kitchen cooking greets you on arrival, the backdrop to mama's masterpieces
like Osso Bucco ala Milanese, Pan-fried Swordfish with Squid Ink Taglioni
or Risotto of Blue Swimmer Crab. Yum! No wonder Keanu Reeves loved it
when he was filming The Matrix. The wine he drank whenever he dined?
The sweet white Il Cipressino.
