Served at a gathering of friends, enjoying the long evenings complemented with great wines and lots of laughter. A mouthwatering dish where the Carbonara sauce seduces you and where the home-made pasta brings back memories of a pure Italian kitchen.
Sourced from the best olive groves, the combination of our olive oil and bread is like a poem on a plate in perfect harmony. Indulge in the Italian culture by enjoying freshly baked bread and olive oil, Italy’s liquid gold, before every meal.
When we say tomatoes, we think of Italian food, right? Reminiscent of warm summer evenings in Rome or Sicily, any dish with tomatoes is the perfect choice at all times and the essence of Italian cuisine.

There is always time to recline, relax and rejoice in a story.
To stop and appreciate the details that reveal the essence of life.
The simplicity and the old ways of doing things properly.
Take your time because it is your time after all.
Indulge in the tranquility of a boisterous kitchen.
The crescendo of conversation rises and falls around you.
Let the food transport you, another bridge in the city between friends and strangers alike.
The bicycles rush by on their own journeys, surely to return here.
They represent a simpler mode of commuting and the joy in that beautiful motion.
The beautiful tranquility of the streets and cooking is chaos exemplified.
Switch off and relax and be truly present, because the past and the future are merely the ingredients of now.
Take time to speak between mouthfuls and appreciate a time when things were done just a little slower and conversation was currency.
Take time to find not just the right ingredient but the perfect one.
Those flavours in symphony that make time itself stop.
And the time taken to create time-honoured recipes.
Take your time.
To create your own story.
Because it all begins in a place to call your own.
It all begins, once upon a dish.
