Any restaurant that puts your food down on the table and tells you that “yer not goin’ home hungry from ’ere” is already doing a good job of wooing us. Especially when you take a bite and it tastes good as well. Trevi is a bish-bash-bosh kind of Italian restaurant. Lasagnes the size of your thigh. Mozzarella, basil and tomato salads that skimp on nothing. Pints of Birra Moretti on tap. This is, essentially, what school dinners were meant to be like: hearty and tasty and incredibly good value. What’s more, it’s bang opposite Highbury and Islington station, so it’s perfect to drop into for a quick and easy meal.
