Italian food that would make Nonna proud, Vino e Cucina prides itself on unfussy homemade food that is perfect every time.
Uninterested in fancy embellishments and contemporary fashion trends, Vino e Cucina simply allows its old Italian soul to sing and has, as a result, created a restaurant that wouldn't be out of place on a cobbled lane in any Italian town. Outside, you'll see diners eating alfresco throughout the year whilst others might prefer the privacy of the garden out back that is teaming with plants, flowers and vines. Colourful shutters and red and white chequered tablecloths complete the look, making for a rustic, romantic Italian escape in Paddington.
But what's Italia without beautiful food? Ease into the evening with fresh focaccia that is both pillowy and crispy at the same time, porcini risotto balls and creamy burrata served on bread with rocket, tomatoes and balsamico. Then you'll be in the perfect frame of mind for a steaming plate of spaghetti al frutti di mare, a gorgeously cheesy gnocchi, rigatoni with mushrooms or a multi-layered lasagne.
Their pizza menu is mighty impressive too with traditional red and white pizzas on offer, as well as a couple of vegan options. And to round off the evening, it has to be a tiramisu that is best enjoyed with the house-recommended dessert wine. You don't choose the Italian life, the Italian life chooses you!
