We got a 5pm.co.uk voucher for Esca and tried it out the other week. The deal was a good one: a glass of bubbly upon arrival: three courses; a bottle of house wine; and coffee or tea.
The surroundings were well-appointed, and the service was very friendly and efficient (even when it started to get busy).
All three courses were delicious. I had calamari to start, and it was battered and friend to perfection. My main of chicken Florentine (pictured) was also very good, and I can be funny about chicken. The dessert was tasty, but not the expected pannacotta!
The bubbly and house red were fine too, particularly after a glass or so! And the coffee was, of course, excellent.
Deal or no deal, we’ll pop back to Esca for a good Italian meal again.
