So you like the thick base? At Al Albero, they understand that a thickset bottom is a thing of beauty. Go easy on the ordering – one of these weighty slabs, topped with the better part of a of lamb’s shanks, rough nodules of goats cheese and a forest of herbs could stall a pony. At lunchtime a small (which is large) will cost you a sweet fiver, so bunker down among the pumpkins for the cheapest lunch going.
