Putney High Street Where The Italian & Cornish Rivieras Meet
Cornish lobster spaghetti is certainly proving a popular option at Enoteca Turi
Having designed the banners advertising the Cornish Lobster promotion the taste buds were tempted so we booked a table at one of the oldest Italian's in Putney Enoteca Turi to see if it tasted as good as it looks!
Our starters also included Cornish fayre with a fabulous and colourful dish of grilled mackerel with tomato, samphire and potato, toasted almond and basil (8.90), my option was the Antipasto Pugliese (8.50) which is a platter of Mediterranean vegetables grilled and marinaded, with fava bean puree.
Our main courses arrived with my husband opting for the Lobster Spaghetti (16.50) - the subtle lobster flavour was enhanced by a smooth sauce, he is never one for fighting his food off the bone or shell so this proved an easy way to enjoy the lobster! My Saltimbocca di fegato di vitello con piselli e cipolotti (20.75)
was a very tender calves liver sautéed with parma ham, braised peas and spring onion, peashoot salad.
Dessert was shared between us and beautifully presented - a white wine jelly encasing poached nectarines served with an amaretti custard and summer berries (7.25) for someone like me who loves almonds the custard was too good to be true!
