They pride themselves on their signature sourdough pizzas which according to partner Abhijit Gupta, is made from hand-rolled base of sourdough that is matured for a minimum of 24-48 hours. The pizzas are cooked in specially designed wood-fired brick ovens that can reach temperatures of 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit and the end result is a deliciously thin crust pizza.
The menu does not end at just pizzas, there is much creativity that can be found in the restaurant’s appetiser and main selections, each served with thoughtful presentation.
Appetisers, such as Truffle oil laced potato wedges, Burrata bomb – chilled cheese flavoured with sundried tomatoes and topped with a balsamic glaze. The butter garlic chilli prawns served with soft rosemary focaccia are a few all-time favourites. If Garlic breads are your thing, then they have a whole section devoted to this speciality and Chef Nicolas says try the Stuffed Garlic Bread with Sundried Tomatoes and make it extra decadent by adding a topping of burrata cheese and rocket leaves.
In the mains, Spaghetti Aglio Olio Peperoncino – long strands of spaghetti pasta are tossed with garlic, extra virgin olive oil, parsley, chilli flakes & perfectly grilled vegetables. Tender bits of prawns and penne cooked to a perfect al dente are smothered in a flavourful tomato and cream sauce in the Penne Rosa. Seafood and meat lovers are well catered for and the desserts are mostly classic – tiramisu, warm chocolate cookies, cheesecake and Nutella and Mascarpone sourdough.
