Head Chef Matthew Stubbing continues to serve up excellent Roman-inspired food in this traditional Italian wine emporium. Located in a heritage-listed building, 1889 Enoteca has one of the best selections of Italian regional wines outside of Italy. High ceilings, red banquettes and a marble-topped bar make this a sophisticated venue for lunch or dinner.
1889 Enoteca is well known for its innovative Italian dishes and has some of the finest pasta in Brisbane. Insalata is fresh and seasonal, with ripe and juicy peaches, salty mozzarella, bitter radicchio, tomatoes and basil. It is a light and simple salad that is full of flavour. Saltimbocca alla Romana comprises tender rare veal, wrapped in pungent sage leaves and prosciutto and then lightly fried. Served with endive, asparagus, chickpeas and a rich jus, this is an excellent version of a timeless dish.
