We relish the enthusiasm and zeal with which traditional Italian dining is to be enjoyed. Our open kitchen showcases our chefs preparing fresh and local ingredients.
When you join us for dinner, expect it to be a relaxing evening lasting a couple of hours over several piatti (courses). Your table comes alive when we present a variety of large offerings on platters or bowls within easy reach of all.
A classic Italian pranzo (dinner) usually begins with a variety of antipasti (hot and cold appetizers), followed by one or two primi (usually a hot pasta, risotto, or gnocchi). Next your table will share i secondi (entrées) served on a platter combined with your choice of contorni (vegetable side dishes). Italians often complete their meal with un dolce, un caffe, or un digestive (dessert, espresso, or liqueur).
Our suggestion would be to take your time and savour the flavours and aromas that entice the senses.
Complementing our menu is a brilliant and varied wine list that features wines from all over Italy, and also embraces outstanding wines from all over the world. We also carry an extensive list of Grappa, Cognac and Port.
