Locanda Ottoemezzo

About Locanda Ottoemezzo

A sensory homage to Federico Fellini's Oscar-winning classic, 8½., Locanda Ottoemezzo's blood red walls are filled with rare LPs, books, instruments and even an original 1963 poster. Yet there's nothing gimmicky about this one-off inviting den of bold colours, retro-patterned cushions and original, light Italian cooking. Always on the menus is perfected house risotto - wild mushroom in winter; nutty asparagus in summer. As well as a fantastic fillet of beef in a salt crust, aromatised in thyme, rosemary and red wine. Homemade pasta and soup specials change daily.
