Review on Gotto Trattoria
Gotto Trattoria is a delightful Italian restaurant set by the canal banks of the River Lee on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Hackney Wick. It's the sister restaurant to Mele e Pere in Soho which was launched by Peter Hughes and Veronese chef Andrea Mantovan in February 2012. This new venture takes its name from the Veronese expression meaning going out for a bite and glass of wine with friends. Full length glass doors can be fully opened during summer months to make the most of the setting for al fresco dining and drinking. Inside there's an open kitchen overlooking simple wooden tables and chairs, with a colourful graffiti styled mural on one wall behind some banquette seating.
The kitchen serves a daily changing menu of rustic Italian fare using impeccable British produce, with a few ingredients sourced from their suppliers in Italy. Diners can enjoy dishes such as braised beef braciole with ricotta Pugliese or smoked tuna carpaccio with fennel and orange salad. Elsewhere look for main courses like whole red bream with San Marzano tomatoes, roasted potatoes and oregano or tagliatelle with braised wild boar ragù. When it comes to desserts there's chocolate mousse with mascarpone vanilla cream or pannacotta with raspberries.
Alongside the food there's an all-Italian wine list from small independent producers, craft beer and home made vermouth on tap. At the weekend Gotta serves a brunch menu that is proving to be very popular.
