Wine... and wine in Smithfield

This Italian joint keeps the food deliberately light and lunchable, with rustic meat/cheese platters and "bruschetonne" (smoked salmon & rocket; baby artichoke & tomato) serving as ballast for the main grape-sourced event: walls covered with 60+ select varietals in stay-or-go bottles -- from Librandi's Ciro Rosso ("strong scents of tobacco"), to Franciacorta Brut ("hints of moss"), to Scottimano's Dolcetto D'Alba with its "pleasantly bitter finish", much like most of Britain ashamedly finds Katie Price's travails.
