Our menu is inspired from the many diverse regions of Italy and we support local farmers and producers to create a seasonally changing menu that is traditional with a contemporary touch. We pride ourselves in offering house made pasta, sausages, cured meats, desserts and sauces. Chef Ilya enjoys creating a modern plate rooted in tradition. He plays with texture and taste and creates specials and features that showcase local ingredients and seasonal themes.
