Affordable Italian eats in bustling Vila Madalena
It’s not Don Pasquale, Donizetti’s most famous opera, that this restaurant is named after but the proprietor who was born in the Puglia region of Italy. For aficionados of Italian cuisine – which means, arguably, most of us – this restaurant offering the right combination of antipasti, pasta and wines, should hit the spot. In its new incarnation in Vila Madalena (the restaurant moved in 2011), what the restaurant may have lost in cosy charm, it makes up for in added space. For antipasti, try the tender marinated eggplant, the rich and tiny boursin cheese balls, and some generous hunks of salami (cured on the premises); it all might just lead you to attempt a top-of-your-lungs Pavarotti number.
Open noon-midnight Mon-Sat
