Chris Lillico’s regional Italian menu features a selection of classics created with fresh, seasonal ingredients. The rotating menu is displayed on a large blackboard, and changes every Wednesday but always features favourites such as handmade pasta and risotto. This intimate space with a rustic feel features a handful of wooden tables and bar seating. Hidden away from the bustle of Toorak Road, this is a special place for a tasty meal.
Regardless of what you choose from the concise menu, you won’t be disappointed. Braised octopus with potato puree is a beautifully presented starter. Tender, fresh octopus is well complemented by the creamy potato. Prosecco and prawn risotto features a generous serving of plump prawns and al dente rice. This delicately flavoured dish is accented with tomatoes and herbs. Tagliatelle strands bathe in a light ragu of pork and fennel sausage and white wine – delicious!
