Vai Spuntino Bar

Vai Spuntino Bar is a great new wine bar and Italian restaurant in Soho. To start, there's bread with roasted garlic, a creamy eggplant puree and a bean and olive salad and a lovely create-your-own wine flight.

The tuna duo, with hamachi and yellowtail, was served with avocado and was a great light start to dinner.

The first tomato and watermelon salad I've had this year was served with goat cheese.

The beet salad was incredible, with arugula and a hefty portion of shaved cheese.

A pappardelle and ramp dish was surprisingly light given the richness of the sauce.

The short ribs in a meaty sauce melted; the bed of potatoes was buttery.

The flatbread with prosciutto, gorgonzola and figs was sweet and a good stand in for dessert.
