Sciue sciue is a Neapolitan term meaning to do something uncomplicated, easy, and, above all, good. Chef Paola Toppi and her team have taken this term as inspiration and created dishes that ensure their food is sciue sciue. With jazz classics floating through the airwaves, white linen tablecloths, and immaculately presented wait staff, a sense of occasion is created. Great for couples and small groups, there is something for everyone here.
At Sciue Sciue Ristorante Italiano, the dishes have stayed true to the Italian cuisine – the food is classically fancy without being fussy fancy. Pasta and veal comprise the signature dishes so popular with diners. To start, the duck liver pâté is a favourite, served on a wooden board with toasted brioche, cornichons, cherry tomatoes and two generous portions of thick, smooth pâté. The risotto ai gamberi is a flavoursome hit of dense tomato, garlic and chilli ‘stock’, heightened with prawns.
