At the head of this new venture is the high-heeled “mafia”, which brings together partner Daniela Azeredo and chef Patricia Jácome. The duo bets on quality products, such as artisanal tomato sauce and Neapolitan-inspired pizzas with 24-hour fermented dough.
“Italian-inspired food is fresh, simple and uses few ingredients. But they have to be excellent. Thus, we always use fresh products that are delivered daily to the restaurant”, explains Daniela.
To start the experience, the antipasti menu offers the Caponata (7.5 euros), with aubergines, courgettes, onions and sautéed peppers or the Italian cheese and cold meat platter (Tavolo di formaggi e salsicce, 18 euros).
From the selection of pizzas and pastas, Pizza Al Mare stands out, with clams topped with tomato sauce and finished with basil (14.95 euros), Spaghetti alla bolognesa La Cosa Nostra (15.5 euros), Tagliatelle al limoni (12.95 euros), an ideal pasta for the heat due to the refreshing touch of the lemon sauce or the Spaghetti alle Vongole (15.5 euros), with a light sauce that tastes like the sea.
In the first summer of this themed restaurant and bar, decorated and designed by Laura Lasarin, Maitê Andrade Brambilla and Junior Brambilla, you can also enjoy a salad. The highlights are Caprese, the classic combination of buffalo mozzarella, cherry tomato and pesto (8.5 euros) or Pere e Crema di Gorgonzola, with a mix of lettuce, cucumber, radish, caramelized pear, gorgonzola cream and pesto.
The drinks menu includes a selection of wines and cocktails, but the toast to the hottest season of the year is the Sangria of white or red wine, served by the glass (3.5 euros) or by the liter (15 euros).
Before ending this movie-worthy tour, try the Torta Fredda al Cioccolato e Gelato, a chocolate truffle cake with nuts, accompanied by ice cream (5 euros) and the Panna Cotta Basilico e Pomodoro, with basil and tomato (3.75 euros).
