Branca has a relaxed and informal style. Soft gnocchi served with an intensely flavoured venison and tomato ragu made you sigh with pleasure. Daily-changing menu spans small and larger plates of vibrant, feel-good food. Be it fresh salads, gooey fried cheese or spaghetti tossed with oil and anchovies.
Thankfully, the food is more homely. Cheff techniques work only to draw out flavour in a menu of classics that includes lasagna alongside slow-cooked pasta dishes and grilled meat and fish where the ingredients are quite rightly behind the lovely food.
