The trend of ´´sharing´´ has been around for a while, but not particularly with Italian cuisine. Fucina is an Italian restaurant based on this sharing-concept. Sharing with beautiful, deliciously & organic Italian produce to be precise.
The cool thing about the contemporary and stylish interior are the ''dripping'' ceilings. The whole colour combo with beige, wood & green makes the place feels bright, calm & relaxed.
Fucina has the pizza's and pasta's on the menu, but there is a big focus on game. The pasta is home-made, the pizza's will come out of a wood-fire oven, but the wood-fire grill will take centre stage. Giving those, suckling pigs, boar and large cuts of meat an unique flavour!
I started off with the Cetara Anchovies, Stracciatella, Peppers & Capers (£7.75). No, not the ice cream btw. Instead, a nice combination of the souriness from the anchovies, the creaminess from the stracciatella and the sweet hints from the peppers.
Followed by the Vongole Scoppiate con Gavi di Gavi, Star Anise & Sundried Tomato (£13.75) and the Ravioli d'Anatra Hazelnut, Ricotta, Sage & Orange (£14.50). Both looking and deliciously tasting.
As dessert I had one of my favourite desserts, the Pannacotta, Pistachio Crumble, Blueberry & Grappa (£7.50). It got served in a way that I didn't expect at all, but was pleasantly surprised!
Finished off with an espresso and the Italian cocktail of them all, the Negroni! All served by very attentive and presentable staff, happy to explain the Fucina story.
Kurt Zdesar did it again. The founder of Chotto Matte & Black Roe, opened another beautiful restaurant. A restaurant which I definitely will visit with that special one, or a proper family night out.
