Review on Legna

Six months after the launch of Indian restaurant Opheem, chef Aktar Islam opened Legna in November 2018 serving modern Italian cuisine. Occupying the former premises of his pop-up venture Mi Amore on Summer Row in the heart of Birmingham, the restaurant is just doors away from its older sibling. Legna which is Italian for firewood has the most stunning interior filled with rich wood, stylish Italian furniture and beautiful white apple blossom trees. There's a separate glamorous curved 32-seater bar serving drinks and snacks, and a private dining room with doors that open up to overlook the canal.

Taking reins in the state of the art kitchen with its wood fired pizza oven is Steve Woods, the former head chef of Pure Bar and Kitchen. High-quality ingredients provide scaffolding for a concise modern menu that shows off its Italian credentials with starters along the lines of bresaola, fillet of beef, rocket, parmesan and truffle or anguilla, smoked eel, beetroot, horseradish and blackerries. After that, consider veal sirloin, aubergine and salsa verde or for fish fans there's wood fired hake, samphire, walnut and caper sauce. Torta al limon, caramelised Amalfi lemon and crème fraiche or a traditional tiramisu make a good finale.
