This Italian bar and kitchen in Fitzrovia is a Brighton import that serves a bigoli with such perfect al dente bite that we have officially added ‘stop eating mediocre pasta’ to our five-year life plan. It comes in a Venetian duck ragu that is so deliciously rich, you won’t even be mad that this plate of pasta will set you back £17. Outside of epiphany pastas, Cin Cin is also home to some big-price, big-summer-energy fishy mains and satisfying little Italian small plate classics. Ideal for date night and aperitivo-fuelled four-hour catch-ups, their sophisticated dining room is a truly lovely place to be but when the sun is shining, you can’t beat their quintessentially London pavement seating. Affogato and limoncello shots encouraged.
