"Other places in London do deep-fried olives, but I can't think of anywhere that also stuffs them with ground veal, mortadella and as much fresh parmesan as it's possible to cram into such a tiny space. It is the pimped olive ne plus ultra. It is number 11 on a scale that goes to 10." READ REVIEW

"An unexpected gem of home-style Sardinian cooking in the heart of London, Cucina Asellina is well worth a visit when you’re in the West End." READ REVIEW
