Vins specialises in serving low-intervention wine and simple food. It bucks the small, expensive, sharing plates trend by serving big rustic dishes like fregola with pigs cheek and spring onions (small sharing plates are also available), and, as such, is not the kind of place you’re going to leave feeling hungry. In fact it’s a great neighbourhood spot. It’s perfect for a date, but it’s equally good for crowding a bunch of old friends around a table and catching up over a couple of bottles of wine.
