There used to be no pizza and no men working at this popular neighbourhood Italian (the name is literally ‘girly Italian’) and although men are now allowed in the kitchen, there’s still no pizza. However, with pastas this good, you won’t really miss it (it’d be a different matter about the men – just how good can a ravioli be?), with locals particularly fond of the fig and sausage pasta but it’s hard to go wrong with any choice. The place can get very busy – bookings are essential at night – and service can get extremely slow, so do order a plate of appetizers to take off the edge if you arrive hungry.
