Lunch was at Osteria dell’Angolo in Marsham Street. I liked the sound of the Italian spiced meats to begin the meal (see above), while my companion went for the day’s special beef carpaccio (below).
Both were excellent, as was the grilled swordfish (not shown) we both chose for the main course. It was lightly and perfectly done and was moist and tender. We drank a Gavi wine from the Piedmont area of Italy, made primarily with the Cortese grape. It was quite dry, fruity and acidic, with an attractive straw colour to it.
