I went to a little Italian Restaurant in Southwark Park Road (SE16 I will admit!) called Arancia on Friday night.
Interestingly the chef is an Irish lady.
Menu is very small (4/5 starters and 4/5 mains) and it was hard to choose, as all looked good to me.
I had home made spinach ravioli and it really was home made (or at least I have never been able to buy ones that big and yummee)- the bloke had Scallops with tomatoes and pastis. I could smell the pastis from my side of the table - but didnt get to taste it as he ate it all. Then I had Cuttlefish in stew which was really tender, and he had slow cooked mutton.
All in all it is very reasonably priced, and we had a nice bottle of wine. THink the total was about £60 for two (very nicely the bloke paid)- we had icecream and sorbet for pudding - icecream was good, sorbet was a bit cold!
We walked from Borough High St, and it is quite do-able.
We will deffo go again.
I went on Saturday and had the scallop and tomato bruschetta and the cuttlefish. My friends had the pollock with samphire as a main. The food is always excellent and it's really reasonable. I was with 3 others - we all had starter, main and desert and with two bottles of wine and service it came to £30 per head. I've been lots of times and have never had a duff meal.
