Summer? 

The calendar tells us that summer starts in December. The weather hasn't received the memo! Regardless, we have an exciting menu planned for December and some special events for Christmas and new year to keep up the spirits. And speaking of spirits, we have some Renegade Gin from the fabulous folk at Eden brewery in Mittagong!

 

Zucchini is a cracker in December, matched with fresh season peas and some juicy apricots we think the menu is pretty tasty!

We start with a new pizza in December - Albicocche - with a pesto base, fresh apricots, poached chicken, goats cheese and pine nuts this is summer on a plate - well, a pizza.

Peas are featuring with a fresh pasta with peas, mint and pancetta along with a really delicious and summery risotto of creamed peas and mint. Our current specials of meatballs and Ling are so popular we're keeping them to the end of the year! 

Our Christmas Eve Vigilia di Natale - or Feast of the Seven Fishes - which will celebrate Christmas has filled and we already have a waitlist. We're closing for the Christmas long weekend after the feast and then we're back in time for New Year's Eve with another feast planned to welcome in 2022. 

These two Friday nights will have a reduced takeaway window from 5pm to 7pm only and table bookings are only available as part of our special menu events. Book a table now.

Covid Restrictions 

Table reservations are open online. We can currently seat 22 people inside and a further 10 people outside (weather permitting).

We're shaking up our menu for the restaurant to enable us to meet demand in a timely fashion. 

Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday will be pretty much the same as it has been with an a la carte menu and no restrictions on seating times. 

Friday and Saturday we will have two distinct seatings and two table d'hote menus: 

A Sunset menu for our early diners which will offer a selection of share platters and entrees and our full pizza menu plus lasagne and cannelloni for mains at just $38 per person ($20 for kids under 12). There will be no other pasta or Seasonal Specials. With takeaway so busy, we want to be sure to provide great food and great service so a dedicated menu is the best way to go. 

Our second sitting will be offered our new Taste of Italy menu, complete with seasonal specials and an option for two or three courses ($48 and $60 respectively). We're bringing the regions to the weekends so you can try some of the very unique dishes we've been privileged to serve during our Regional Nights. And always with a seasonal focus to keep it fresh.

Regional Nights

We've taken the difficult decision to cancel the last of our Regional Dinners for 2021. We'll be back again in February 2022 with hopefully a more certain year ahead!

If you're not feeling well or have any of the following symptoms, we ask you not to come into the restaurant. If that means cancelling your booking, we will understand. 

We keep a waiting list to allow others to come in at relatively short notice if your plans must change. 

Symptoms to watch out for: 

fever, cough, sore/scratchy throat, shortness of breath,

runny nose, muscle aches, joint pains

Dining in the time of Covid

Our small space can only fit twenty-eight people at the best of times. We are limited to 22 diners until December. Seating times are limited and we will likely have tables booked before or after you. 

If we are strict with our seating times, please be understanding that this is the only way we can make our little space viable under the circumstances. 

We are Covid compliant in all our practices. Between 20th October and 30th November we will require all diners to provide evidence of double vaccination in accordance with the Public Health Orders. Our understanding is that the Service NSW app will provide the information so we will request to see your checkin and vaccination status for all members of your party. Please remember to bring your phones.

We hope you understand, and while you have the right to refuse to provide the information, we will then be unable to serve you in our restaurant.

Wearing a face covering is mandatory in NSW at the moment, so please have a face mask with you and wear it when you enter our premises. 

We are regularly sanitising the counter, EFTPOS machine, door handles, light switches and taps throughout our service period. We encourage our customers to use our handwashing facilities at the end of the hallway or to take advantage of the hand sanitiser provided at the counter and on every table. 

Our kitchen continues to maintain the highest level of hygiene in food handling and packaging so you can rest assured that your food is in safe (and very clean) hands.

Please reserve a table online, or if you prefer, please call the restaurant and we will respond as soon as possible.
