Santa Maria, the real deal

Being Italian, I am asked all the time to recommend Italian restaurants in London. I always struggle. It’s really hard to find good quality Italian food in the Big Smoke; to the point that when I eat out, I don’t go to Italian restaurants (apart from Trullo, but head-chef Tim…

A steamy love affair

Interesting news on different fronts of my life made this last week pretty busy. Some travels and quite a few planned and unplanned commitments ;). Hence the slower pace of my blog posts. Just before the confusion of the past days, I was invited to be part of a pretty…

Good friends and a plan B, that’s all you need!

I have profusely expressed my disappointment with the viral walk-in policy of many recently opened restaurants, but I must admit,  booking comes with a few cons as well.

Ode to Bone Daddies

Last Thursday, after a morning of pretty useless meetings, I was feeling a little blue, and I needed  a good cheer up. When I am in a bad mood, my three antidotes are either a long chat with my best friend, a Bikram yoga class, or a little foodie adventure….

Bikram Highbury and Islington review

Health and desserts, probably not words that should be in the same sentence .   I have tested a newly opened Bikram  yoga studio in North London, Bikram Highbury and Islington. The name is slightly misleading….

Oink! Shabby chic dining in the New Forest

I  am what you call a city girl. I love London. I like the idea of tottering out of my apartment in the morning, half-awake, to find a mean cappuccino within a 50 meter radius. I want need a choice of at least 5 or 6 good great restaurants at stiletto-walking distance from my sofa. But  sometimes…
