Cremini and porcini mushrooms. They melt almost like butter on the tongue as they enter into a symphony of fennel flavoured sausage, rocket and parmigiano. An excellent three course dinner is served in splendid surroundings and accompanied by lots of waiters and a sommelier, only not all of them work at Centotre! Some break into song: Italian, English, Scottish even. Excellent voices begin with a pretty entertaining first set (after starters). The set after mains is a bit generic, but probably what most people want to hear under the circumstances. Unfortunately the characteristic effect of combining Italian food and operatic serenading music gets slightly lost through the use of amplification, but this is still a very tasty and enjoyable occasion.
Centotre, 13-15, 20-22 Aug, 9.30pm.
