A new opening in Notting Hill, Poggi is a wonderful little find.
All of the produce is directly sourced from Piacenza daily and the short menu give you a real taste of a trattoria.
We started with the salumi plate which was all freshly cut at the counter from some of the most succulent looking Italian meats I’ve seen in some time. The lardo was great and we shared it with fried gnocco and excellent olive oil. To follow some tiny delicate ravioli in broth was perfect for a cold winter’s night as was some lovely tortelli with ricotta and spinach. A top of the class tiramasu (the best I’ve had outside Italy) finished the evening in style.
This was true Piacenzan cooking with a small menu that left no room for spaghetti with ragu that many people might be expecting in an Italian restaurant. Try it for something different and to support people who are passionate about their home town’s cooking.
