I haven't a photo of the starters that were served as we waited to be seated but I can tell you that it was a combination of raw yellowfin tuna, shaved fennel and bottarga served on a spoon. It was accompanied by glasses of Prosecco Marca Oro Extra Dry.
To drink: 2008 DOC Ippolito 1845 Greco Bianco
From left to right, Capocollo, spicy fennel salami, calabrese salami and pig blood sausage. We were all really impressed by the flavour of the blood sausage and quite taken by just how good it was.
To drink: 2006 IGT Ippolito 1845 Gaglioppo & Cabernet Sauvignon
Lasagne layered with pork, artichoke, mozzarella and peas with a fresh tomato passata. If there was a shrine to lasagne you'd be kneeling there worshipping this one - it really is that good.
A lovely rustic dish - particularly loved the texture of the swordfish and the way it had absorbed all those beautiful flavours.
To drink: Bergamino - Bergamont Liqueur
Chinulille are fried sweet ravioli filled with chocolate, chestnuts, candied fruit and nougat and were served with a chocolate sauce for dipping. Do I really need to say that they were delicious?
