What’s The Deal?
A classy neighbourhood Italian with a seasonal menu. Local (for me) but definitely worth the trip if you live further afield!
Trullo has a pretty small but changing menu depending on the season, although a few classics always remain. As a table of four, we opted to order most of the menu and share everything – a strategy that worked really well!
For starters we had the Rabbit fritti with sage & anchovy, Bruschetta of purple olives & grilled peppers (pic below), Tagliarini pasta with marjoram, garlic & parmesan (pic below), and obviously tucked into the house sourdough on the table! The pasta was simple but excellent and although I’m not generally a Rabbit fan, I’m glad we tried this as it was great.
Onto the mains, you CANNOT go to Trullo without having the Beef shin ragu! This was the standout dish of the night for me and after drooling over pics of it on Instagram beforehand – it didn’t disappoint. You can either ask for this in starter or main size so we had a main to share.
Other mains we tried were the Mozzarella di bufala with marinated aubergine, chickpeas & spinach, Lemon sole with shaved fennel and the Chargrilled Cornish Red Leg chicken. This was perfect as we had a nice mix of meat, fish, veg and of course, the pasta.
Finally, an excellent couple of (again sharing) desserts finished off this amazing meal. Almond tart was one of the best I’ve had and the Chocolate & cherry torte (for the birthday girl, hence the candle) was also delicious.
Trullo has a neighbourhood feel – small but sophisticated with good service. It’s pretty cosy with a nice atmosphere. Great for date nights, catching up with friends or a special occasion.
Budget or Bust?
££ – We spent around £50 per head for pretty much 3 courses with a bottle of wine and cocktails. For the quality of the food this was really reasonable and I will certainly be back!
