Review on Sorella
Respected chef and restaurateur Robin Gill behind The Dairy and Counter Culture, relaunched The Manor in January 2018 as an Amalifi inspired Italian restaurant called Sorella, which means sister in English. Gill who is no stranger to Italian cooking having worked a number of years on the Amalfi coast, including the two-Michelin starred Don Alfonso 1890 in the village of Sant'Agata. Tucked away in a quiet side street off the busy A3 in Clapham, the skylit dining room is a stripped back space with bare brick walls and distressed tables.
Sorella adheres to the classic Italian format with regard to the menu which is divided into Cicchetti, Antipasti, Primi, Secondi and finishing with Dolci. The menu is dictated by ultra-fresh seasonal produce along the lines of "Willy's" mackerel crudo and salsa verde or tagliatelle with pork and nduja ragù. Among the big plates there's roasted pollock, roe and chard or Yorkshire venison and charred onions finishing with hay panna cotta and quince.
Service is friendly and welcoming and wine comes from their own vineyard in Italy, produced using sustainable, bio-dynamic and organic techniques. Also enjoy aperitifs like their House Negroni, gin, Camparia and homemade vermouth or Quince Bellini, quince purée and prosecco.
