Sexy Mama Love Cicchetti, and so do I!

Sexy Mama Love Cicchetti on Carlton Street in Hockley is the latest offering from Edin Gondzica. They are serving up some excellent classic small plates of Cicchetti style food (think Italian Tapas) and are well worth a visit. It gently reinvents the space formerly known as “Edin’s Natural Kitchen”. I suppose that this is just…

Gusto in West Bridgford

Gusto in West Bridgford is a relatively new arrival to the West Bridgford Dining scene. It moved into the space vacated by the Monkey Tree pub back in the Spring of 2017. The actual Monkey Tree is still there but not sure that it is filled with much gusto of it’s own these days. The…

Jamie’s Italian – Nottingham

It’s hard not to get excited about a trip to one of Jamie Oliver’s resturants, over the years he has been almost constantly in the spotlight and gets as much good press and he gets bad press. He has probably featured equally on the what’s hot and what’s not lists. I think to me his greatest…
