Italian food is popular and well recognised but Sardinian cuisine is lesser known. Italian owned Sardinia is one of the largest islands in the Mediterranean Sea; try the Sardinian Flatbread (Pane Carasau) is served upon being seated, along with fluffy salty olive bread. Their pastas are slightly different from the regular spaghettis and tagliatelles, and fresh seafood is often an emphasis. Sardo are generous with refilling the breadbasket and have a good selection of wines.

Nizuni takes Japanese food in London to an even greater level – their Katsu Curry Don (breaded pork cutlets served atop Japanese rice and Japanese curry), their Sake Don (salmon sashimi on a bed of Japanese rice) comes with mini potato croquettes, a mini salad, even salmon roe. Small plates are well done, impressing not just with the quality of the food but also its presentation. The dimly lit space is filled with warm woods, and the resulting ambience is perfect for quiet romantic dinners, and also for drinks when you want a break from shouting above thumping music in noisy pubs and bars.
