For a twist on the regular Christmas meal, this Italian offering is a real treat. It’s set in the restaurant of one of the country’s favourite celebrity chefs, who has worked his magic over a large, two-floor space in the heart of The Centre. The place is may be in a modern shopping centre, but the vibe is rustic, warm and welcoming. Design features include terracotta tiles, oak wall panelling and a zinc-panel bar. Feature lighting creates an intimate mood, so you can get the Christmas spirit flowing and celebrate the season.
Temptingly fresh and flavoursome, the Christmas menu here evokes the vibrancy and passion of traditional Italian cooking, with indulgent touches. You can kick off with tempting starters like cured meats or bruschetta. The mains are a tempting choice of succulent meaty dishes or inventive veggie options. Pastas are a standout strong point, done to perfection in the Italian way – you can watch the chefs work their magic in the pasta-making area. Remember to save room for dessert, with a choice of tempting classics like brownie, white chocolate cheesecake and ice cream.
You can choose two or three courses, and drinks to suit your taste, from the excellent house wines to sparkling prosecco. Of course you can order further drinks, either on the day or in advance as part of the package.
