Is it a cocktail bar? Is it a bistro? Well, it’s both of the above. Oh, and it’s also Italy’s smallest gin distillery. As well as Messrs Davide Martelli and Alessandro Longhin’s signature Spleen Et Idéal gin, there’s a large selection of spirits and cocktails to choose from, including the Gentlemen Only (cognac, bourbon, vermouth and bitters) and the obligatory negroni, as well as a gourmet tapas menu of “all things naturally edible”, which is reassuring. Standout dishes include roasted octopus and pasta alle vongole.
