Restaurant Review - Cucina Asellina

Excellent food - all three courses were sublime which is incredible as usually I find one course lets down the meal somewhat. The sharing meat and cheese platter was exceptional quality and had the additional surprise of truffle honey. This was so delicious that I will now try to find a supplier where I can purchase a bottle. We followed it with the wild boar pappardelle. The pappardelle was perfectly al dente - always tricky with fresh pasta. The wild boar sauce was divine - lovely slowly cooked chunks of meat in a rich red wine sauce which was not overpowering. Finally we shared a tiramisu - one of the best i've ever tried. A mention should also be made about the bread. It was plentiful and varied and served with some great tasting grassy olive oil. Unfortunately the meal was let down predominantly by the appalling music - far too loud and more suitable for a noisy, if dated, bar and therefore completely unacceptable in the plush restaurant surroundings. Secondly, the staff, although lovely were far too attentive. At one point we had three waiters at our table and they disturbed us three in times in the space of five minutes.
