Darren Wallace has struck gold with his southern Italian menu. It balances hearty Italian pasta and risotto dishes with less traditional fare that has some ingenious flavour combinations. Popular with corporate and business diners, SUD Food & Wine offers a winning combination of old-school hospitality and a relaxed atmosphere. White tablecloths, classic aperitif prints and a large selection of wines on display add to the ambience.
Choose from the comprehensive menu, or take your pick from the specials board that is driven by fresh, seasonal produce. Rigatoni con maiale is a spicy pork ragu with pasta and flecks of parsley. Fennel, garlic and red wine flavours caress the slow-cooked shredded pork. Gnocchi con agnello comprises house-made parmesan gnocchi accompanied by slow-braised lamb shoulder. Subtle flavours of thyme and white wine are lovely and do not overwhelm the dish.
PSST! This is a great spot for a business meeting, and the restaurant can be booked to cater for a large group.
