The grey weather isn’t budging, whenever i look out the window it really looks grim so to cheer myself up I took myself out for some lunch.

There is a wonderful little Italian down the road called Da Mimmo great food, wonderful service and only a few minutes walk away. And since they have a great lunch menu I grabbed my book and took a stroll across the road.

Da Mimmo’s recently opened up their new venue, a few doors down from their original home, so it was the perfect time to try it out. The food is still as tasty as ever, but I have to admit I missed the cluttered old-fashioned look they sacrificed for more of a  ‘hipster-feel’.

I had bruschetta for starters (comes with the lunch deal), and I have to say I have never had better, the fresh bread laden with tomatoes and herbs had me licking my fingers. Then I had the pasta of the day, yummy and creamy, the perfect comfort food for such a miserable day, and I treated myself to some cannoli and coffee. And while the mixture of cream cheese (I think it’s goats and ricotta), pistachios and pastry was truly define, I was too full to eat both … so I took one home with me – a treat for tomorrow!
