Meeting mates in Antipasti
Cafe Antipasti is a BIG favourite for us. Many's the time we've done a quick phone-round, and met up for a blether and a filling meal.
Who cares if they don't take bookings? Having to wait only really happens at peak times. And a full restaurant has a dead good atmosphere.
If possible, we like to grab the table to the left just before you go up the stairs. Sitting there, we can see everything that's going on, and we feel like we have a small space all to ourselves.
To date, only 2 of my friends - Hugh and Owen - have been able to finish a full helping of Antipasti's risotto! It tastes divine, and doesn't half fill you up.
Cafe Antipasti is probably our top relaxed Italian restaurant... So friendly, popular and tasty!
