Swiss-born co-owner/Chef Felix Rutz has been cooking at Darling Point’s bei amici for over 10 years. His menu pairs traditional Italian presentation – showcasing a seasonal and organic philosophy – with a Swiss take on classic Italian cuisine.
This relaxed restaurant offers diners a cosy night out. The vibe and setting, which includes outside seating, all come together to make this a great choice for a romantic dinner for two or simply catching up with friends.
The concise menu delivers great diversity, including many vegetarian and vegan options. The antipasti are a considered spectrum of raw, fresh, cooked and house-made options with a strong focus on bold flavours. For mains, there’s a well-balanced range of pastas, and several carefully chosen fish and meat dishes. The spatchcock, half or whole, comes roasted with lemon, thyme and garlic with a salad of sliced corn cob pieces paired with an aromatic herb and pomegranate salad. Sides include enticing options, such as sweetly roasted beetroot paired with crunchy apple, silky labna and walnut crumbs.
PSST! Watch out for events, such as the Swiss Day Fondue.
