Menu

Menu structure

The menu is designed for fresh pasta to take center stage; a break away from the traditional Italian menu structure which typically features pasta as a precursor to the main (usually meat/ seafood) dishes.  This will enable us to focus on the nuances of the craft of fresh pasta. 


Within the base menu, you have the option to choose between pasta formats and also non-pasta choices (refer to the 'Contorni' section) to supplement as intermissions. 

Our experience will constantly evolve to make way for new or improved pasta formats as we develop and delve further into the craft. As such, we reserve the right to make changes as we deem appropriate without any prior notice.
