Review on Locale

Formerly known as Loco, this is the founder member of a mini chain of neighbourhood Italian restaurants aimed deliberately at the local populus. A grand wooden staircase leads up to the main dining room, with its huge candelabras, dark woodwork and striking monochrome Italian pictures hung on deep red walls. It's an attractive mix of intimacy and bustling conviviality.

The kitchen puts its faith in Italian ingredients and authentic Italian recipes for a repertoire of dishes with regional overtones. Stinco d'agnello (roast lamb shank with mash) and filleto di branzino all'acquapazza (sea bass with fish broth, cherry tomatoes and croûtons) are specialities, but the menu also runs to fresh pappardelle with duck ragù, osso buco and roast salmon fillet on spinach with balsamic dressing.

The carefully chosen, mainly Italian wine list is bolstered by a monthly selection of guest bottles from boutique vineyards. There are branches of Locale at 222 Munster Road, Fulham SW6 and at County Hall, Belvedere Road SE1, with further outlets planned.
