What You Will Find
We warn you, this is a seriously long and comprehensive menu, with intriguing options. Settle in for a long read over a cool drink, or alternatively, ask the knowledgeable team for their suggestions.
Our pick for appetizers on a summer day would most probably be Affettato Misto Di Maiale, a selection of imported Italian cold pork cuts, or Insalata Di Polpo Con Patate, and octopus and potato salad.
A guilt-free salad of mozzarella, rocket, tomato, cashew nuts and sun-dried tomatoes would keep us busy while we waited for our Linguine Alla Bottarga, slim ribbons of al dente pasta with shavings of bottarga (fish roe) and Fusilli Ai Quattro Formaggi, with an indulgent mix of four types of cheese in a creamy sauce.
Or possibly a Tagliatelle Al Tartufo Nero, fresh homemade pasta with shavings of rich, earthy black truffle, our weakness. Worth noting, for anyone avoiding gluten, just ask to have the gluten-free pasta.
At the risk of overdoing things we would still head for an Italian classic, Scaloppine Al Marsala, tender scallops of beef bathed in a Marsala wine sauce. If we were in the mood for something a little lighter, it might be Filetto Di Pesce Con Capperi E Olive, another time-honored combination. Pizza would wait for another day, even though the menu has an array of mouthwatering options.
Dessert? Yes, please! We are devotees of Tiramisu, and Zia Amelia does it soooo well. Then just time for an espresso before heading contentedly home.
