Caffe Uno is one of those reliable restaurants that we used to visit quite often. But it now seems that they don’t have as many branches as they used to. We decided just to go for a range of starters and so then we also got the additional variety!
The light dough ball fritters were diamond shaped pieces of fried bread with Grana Padano cheese. There was way too much for one person but good to share. The soup of the day was minestrone and it was served with a few slices of ciabatta bread. The soup was tasty and light and we were pleased that it had lots of chunky vegetables.
The Funghi al Forno was really good. Big slices of ciabatta bread topped with mushrooms in a Gorgonzola cream based sauce. They had served the perfect amount of sauce so it didn’t make the bread soggy.
Caffe Uno had a nice cafe like feel to it. It was quite relaxing sitting and eating, while watching the world go by! The staff were friendly and quite efficient. It seemed that we were waiting a little while longer for the food than first expected but that was ok as we were not in any rush on this particular Sunday!
