Italian-born Chef Dom De Marco seems to have three passions in his life: cooking, people and cycling. And it is rare when someone can take all their passions and combine them in a business, but that is exactly what Chef De Marco has done at his new restaurant: Giro d’Italia.
The restaurant’s atmosphere is very inviting; a mahogany wood finish surrounds the dining room, giving it warmth. Quintessential Italian memorabilia is balanced out nicely by the more modern lit-up bar.
At Giro d’Italia, authentic Italian cuisine is served up with a lot of love. Dishes stay true to their origins, but each one delivers an innovative twist. From entree to main course, the dishes and flavours flow nicely, and the servings are very generous. Entrees include fried calamari accompanied by a squid ink aioli that proves a perfect accompaniment. Of course, pasta is a go-to Italian favourite, and the tortelli with pumpkin, sage and amaretti is a perfectly cooked, flavour-packed dish that's guaranteed to please.
PSST! Giro d’Italia is named after the famous cycling competition.
