After a visit to Peter Jones in Sloane Square, we wandered down to the Saachi Gallery on the King’s Road.  It was closed until 30th November!!

The Saturday food and drink market was in full flow in Duke of York Square, the smells were glorious, the food looked very appetising, luckily we had already booked a table for lunch but we did yield to temptation at the Maldon Oysters stand.  Four glorious oysters as an unplanned pre starter!

Manicomio really is an Italian restaurant, nothing like as anglicised (my view) as most.  It si certainly not cheap but when I think of who suggested it to us we knew that already!

It was Saturday approaching 2pm then place was a buzz and full, the space by French standards was generous.  The bread oil and X came quickly, the service was attentive without being intrusive.  My Tomato Soup was nearly solid and wonderful.  I chose the Venison Tagliatelle the pasta plainly made on the premises, melted in the mouth, the glass of Valpolicella a bit steep at £12.75 but was gorgeous.

The desert, not captured on my phone we shared without a problem in the world.
