Food, drink and hospitality at Sardus Cucina are from the Italian island of Sardinia, so you'll find some regional specialities you might not come across elsewhere.

Try the Malloreddus, a Sardinian sausage ragu served with tiny dumpling shaped pasta or fregola ai frutti di mare – semolina ground toasted pasta, with seafood and Sardinian saffron. 

We recommend you read the menu while munching on the Sardinian flat bread served with whipped cream-like cheese and a sun dried tomato, garlic and chilli dip. Herby gins and vermouths are also a speciality of the island.

Arguably the best Sardinian wine list in the UK. Drink Vementino, Cannonau or the many more lesser-know indigenous grapes in the range. 

The site used to be Bem Brasil (same ownership). Two Sardinian exiles, once of Piccolino, Giovanni Testone (above) and Salvatore Sechi persuaded their BB boss there might be room in the market for a specialist Sardinian restaurant. They took him on a trip there, which must have helped.
