2 for 1 at Ristorante Ichnusa

Sardinia (called Ichnusa by the ancient Romans and Greeks) has a great heritage of culinary culture and folklore, and they are proud to bring some of the unmistakable flavours of this proud Mediterranean land to you at their restaurant between Clapham Junction and Wandsworth.

Chefs Roberto Tonzanu and Paulo S. Neto, and General Manager Alberto Panni, have been in the hospitality industry for years and intuitively know what customers want when they go out for a meal or grab a take away.

At Ristorante Ichnusa they offer the authentic taste of Sardinia, preparing their pastas and main courses in the same traditional way that their grandmothers did when they were kids. Strong, bold flavours and the freshest ingredients combine with handmade delicacies and full bodied wine to produce an unforgettable experience for all who grace their tables.

Their specialties include homemade malloreddus with sausage and saffron, braised rabbit, grilled venison, fresh fish and suckling piglets. They offer everything from cured meats and cheeses to spicy green beans with garlic, familiar Italian favourites such as tagliatelle with ragu to Napolitan pasta with seafood and sweet tomatoes. For dessert there is also the mouth watering seadas drizzled with honey and a full range of tempting coffees and digestifs.

The restaurant can also offer Gluten free and whole wheat pasta and Halal meats, meaning everyone can enjoy the real taste of Sardinia!

Important Information

Please Note: The Ristorante Ichnusa excludes the December month. Please note only 1 tastecard per booking or group accepted. Tables cannot be split to accommodate more tastecards.

    My friend and I had a reasonably pleasant dinner here last night, the waitress was very nice (if a bit inattentive at times). I had the seafood pizza and was really disappointed at the tiny amount of seafood actually on there, several of the shells were empty and the pizza base was quite thin and soggy. The aubergine bake was delicious and the bruschetta was lovely too (but a lot of garlic so beware, couples!). Overall I would not
    have paid more than we did, thank God for Tastecard. Not bad and I would return, but only if I used the Tastecard. "

    Having found this Italian restaurant on Taste Card with 4-5 star reviews and on Trip Advisor with the same, I was looking forward to a home cooked Italian meal.

    I advise Taste Carders to be cautious about making an order – after collecting the order the waitress returned to say that the 2 for 1 offer has to match exactly – our starts were fine but my partner ordered a past and I a fish dish and it had to be two from the same section of the menu for the main??! I objected and was told by the chef who overheard, that it was fine.

    My starter was the baked aubergine. Whilst this had a fantastic taste it was a like a soup – it was swimming in tomato source – the texture was not minimal enough to use a fork. Less sauce is definitely required to make this dish sand up to the popular Italian dish made in so many other restaurants.

    I ordered the sea bass, which the menu states is served with vegetables. When I ordered it the waitress said it comes with salad O_O however I wanted hot vegetables so she asked the chef if I could have spinach – that came out very blank – no garlic or seasoned taste. I was horrified to find that the fish had been fried in a thick crust of salt! I tried to peck at it but gave up after 3-4 mouthfuls. I queried this and was told the case is made of rock salt and that is how it is cooked in Sardinia. Also that in future should I come back I should ask for my fish to be off the bone. The suggestion here was that my concern was excessive! I felt sick– it not only ruined the dinner but my appetite for the evening. Today my Italian friend commented on my check-in on Facebook, congratulating me on going there as he is from Sardinia and always goes to the same restaurant when in London. I spoke to him privately and asked about this vile salt tradition. He was alarmed and showed me the recipe online – it says clearly that the salt is used to seal in the flavour and must be removed when serving!!! He also confirmed the same from his upbringing and said the restaurant is bang out of order if they served my fish with the salt crust on – it's not edible!

    I would not recommend this restaurant. Gross. "

  • Vicki said: "A Gem on Lavender Hill
    This is authentic Sardinian food, lovingly prepared. For starters we had mussels in a delicious sauce, and the Sardinian equivalent of mozarella, with melon, cured ham and a blasamic reduction -- both delicious. For mains, I had rabbit in a rosemary and olive sauce which had a wonderful gamey quality... my other half had lamb chops. Pudding was panna cotta made with saffron -- I'm usually a purist when it comes to things like panna cotta and creme brulee, but this was pretty extraordinary. The prosecco and Sardinian wine were definitely superior to the Montepulciano on offer -- and the waiter very kindly took the latter away when it was clear I didn't like it. Even with the tastecard discount the final bill came to £58, with service. But we'll return as a special treat -- preferably with a party of 5, so we can order their suckling pig! The simple, scaled-back interior doesn't prepare you for the ambition of the food (and the prices). "

    " I went to Restorante Ichnusa on Saturday to use taste card for 241 deal. I chose this restaurant because it had very good reviews and was local and could use taste card on a Saturday. Overall the food was very good, however not a good start as the waiter tried to give us a bottle of wine that had already been opened. Not sure if he was hoping he could pour some out without us noticing. The other criticism was that my boyfriend could not find many clams inside the shells. Again not sure if they had been removed or if it was just bad luck. Busy restaurant but tables a little close together and lighting too bright. "
