"Burro e Salvia" is Italian for butter and sage, a classic pasta accompaniment. And that should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect of this café, which now has sites in Shoreditch and East Dulwich – straight-up, no frills pasta. There's tagliatelle, agnolotti, ravioli and tajarin all'uovo, (a long and skinny cut of spaghetti hailing from Piedmont), amongst others on the weekly changing menu, and you can also buy fresh pasta to take home. Feeling stressed? Watching the team hand-pulling the noodles is strangely therapeutic.
