A London Favourite | Enoteca Super Tuscan

Mozzarella, artichokes, olives and fresh basil are some of my favourite ingredients to cook with, so it’s no surprise I’m a lover of Italian food. I love the variety, the taste, and of course, the simplicity of it all.

Enoteca Super Tuscan is a gorgeous Italian wine bar down a tiny side street just south of Spitalfields Market, blink and you’ll have missed it. I met my mum and sister here one day after work and by 7 o’clock it was packed.

They’re got a huge selection of wines which is complimented with an ever-changing specials board – which is completely ingredient-led.  We started with a vegetation antipasta; a selection of cannellini beans, artichoke hearts, olives, mozzarella, peppers and green beans – proving that sometimes meat isn’t needed.

The name of the next dish has completely slipped my mind, but it was basically cheese wrapped in ham, but it was so much better then cheese wrapped in ham. It was served on a bed of rocket with grilled courgettes and sun-dried tomatoes. The cheese melted in your mouth and wasn’t stringy from being baked and was beautifully complement by the saltines of the ham.

For mains each of us ordered from the specials board, my mum went for the Seabass which was so tender and my sister had the Gnocchi which was served in a rich, creamy sauce. I went for the Pea and Mint Tortellini – it was so good I was scrapping the plate for every last morsel. All of our food was washed down with their house white which was smooth and crisp, and worked well with all the flavour combinations.

A meal with my family wouldn’t be complete without dessert and a digestif. The Panna Cotta went down a real treat, it was perfectly set and a great end to a fantastic meal.

I swear it’s some of the best Italian food I’ve had in London (second to the River Café), and I’m already eager to go back.
