As you may already know, fish is a big part of most Mediterranean diets. In Italy, diet is determined by region – with each area cooking with what is locally available to them. Fish is better enjoyed and more popular in certain places, for this reason. Sorrento for example, is a great place to enjoy seafood recipes, where restaurants serve locally-sourced fish, using recipes that date back generations.

It’s no secret that pasta is a big part of Italian cooking. We take pride in curating our menu to include some of the tastiest of pasta dishes, inspired by Italian favourites. While we all think of pasta as culturally Italian, it is in fact likely to be a descendant of the Asian noodle. It’s commonly believed that pasta was brought to Italy from China by Marco Polo during the 13th century. (Thank goodness for that!) Listed below are our top-pasta-picks from our Main Menu.
