Tory (the one hiding behind George) whom we visited in Carpentras in April came to stay with us before Christmas. Together with Janet they had a little ex-De Beers “reunion” – they were all colleagues many years ago. As Tory lives in French wine country, well, I guess the focus there is not Italian. So her request was to have a good Italian meal while in London – with us! Oh yes, dog-friendly Italian, we know a few of them. But only recently, Mummy had learnt that the Italian restaurant down the road from us, Frantoio is dog-friendly. So of course we had to go and try it. Upon entering we were greeted by the owner, Bucci who would break into song at every opportune! He also made a lot of jokes. He asked what were our names. He heard Darcy and he assumed George was Bussell.
We were also introduced to two kids who became absolutely besotted with George – yawn! What’s new? Look at that veal milanese!!!! May’s comment: A local Italian which I have never thought about going to … but alas, I found out they are dog-friendly!!!! And yet another option! Frantoio is at 397 King’s Rd, London SW10 0LRThank you Tory for a delicious dinner. Good idea about going Italian!
