I have been meaning to go to Trullo for quite a long time now but somehow the schlepp up to North London never quite happened, so when I received an invite from Fiona Maclean of http://www.london-unattached.com/. I hopped onto the overground, put on my thermals and hoped for the best. It has been on my radar as a ‘cheaper than The River Cafe‘ option, along with Zucca in Bermondsey, for those of us who like our Italian food to be ‘sophisticated rustic’ but at a price point that isn’t going to break the bank.
For dessert I had Poached pear (£6.50) eschewing the listed mascarpone for a side order of salted caramel ice-cream with Fiona opting for the Chocolate and quince tart (£7). Both were excellent.
We washed down the meal with a bottle of Vadiaperti Greco di Tufo (2010), a wine that is creeping onto a lot of lists at the moment as it combines good value with a robust herb and mineral flavour.
Trullo would be a godsend as a local neighbourhood restaurant offering great quality at a reasonable price point, but would I make the trip across town again? Well yes I would.
