Don’t let the contemporary tiling and red colander light fittings inside this tiny shop fool you - Etto honours the Italian tradition of making pasta from scratch every day. Choose from half a dozen sauces on the menu board, then pick any pasta from rigatoni to ravioli. Slippery linguini - dolloped with salsa verde and served with wagyu meatballs - is a fine choice, as is al dente chilli tagliatelle with rustic black truffle and salami. Antipasto salad is best washed down with birra and arrives overflowing with cacciatore salami half moons, baby mozzarella and herbed breadcrumbs. Prepare to leave full with the urge to speak in a bad Italian accent.
