For 2 Veneti, it’s a great pleasure to present their customers to its culture with and a joyful culinary experience.
“The fringes of Oxford Street are a veritable assault course of Italian tourist traps, & 2 Veneti’s exposed brick, pressed tablecloths & scuffed beech flooring look tailor-made for the area. But accomplished Venetian cookery & a genuinely passionate front of house tell a very different story.
Owner Simon Piovesan has been running restaurants in the area for many years, & where he goes, a loyal crowd tends to follow. Their good sense is evidenced by superb homemade spaghettoni with anchovies & onions or a textbook braised duck rag that could rival the best around.
Other highlights include seafood simmered in tomato sauce, sardines with onions, pine nuts & raisins, & a superb tiramisu whipped to order & served in a crisp tuile. The regional, all-Italian wine list is another trump card, & well-informed service caps it all.”
