Anyone who knows me also knows I’m routinely underwhelmed by Italian restaurants, so when I say that Burro e Salvia is well worth a visit, consider it high praise indeed.
Peek through the cute chicken-and-egg window displays and you’ll see skilled artisans making fabulous fresh pasta, but you need to go through to the back to be where the magic really happens.
There, you can take a seat in the small and stylish dining room, and sample some of the best Italian food I’ve ever encountered. Anywhere.
Don’t skip the starters, because there aren’t many places in London you’ll find as meltingly savoury anchovies or such luscious drapes of San Daniele ham.
Follow up with Burro e Salvia’s adventurous take on filled pasta, or their equally sublime versions of classics like orecchiette.
And then, when you’re leaving via the delightful pasta workshop—after coffee and dessert, of course—don’t forget to pick up a takeaway of fresh ravioli for the next day’s dinner.
A person’s got to eat, right?
