If you want to live La Dolce Vita this Christmas, summon the spirit of Italy with an exclusive party in a beautiful setting. This restaurant is run by one of Britain’s favourite celebrity chefs, and brings rustic charm to The Centre in Milton Keynes. Design features include terracotta tiles, oak wall panelling and a zinc-panel bar. Feature lighting creates an intimate mood. If you have a large group, you can even book out the whole of the first floor, which can accommodate up to 65 people. Here there’s an antipasti display bar as a backdrop to your party, along with bespoke copper lighting and a wall of antique mirrors. It’s a grand setting for a special celebration. There may be options for booking entertainment or music – ask you Account Manager. Even if you have a smaller group, you can still bag your own private area to have a private party.
The tempting Italian dishes are created with flair and a love for fresh and flavoursome ingredients, evoking the vibrancy and passion of traditional Italian cooking. You can kick off with dishes like cured meats or juicy tomato bruschetta. The mains include expertly constructed pasta dishes, a world away from your average spag bol, as well as tempting dishes for carnivores and inspired veggie offerings. Be sure to save room for dessert, as you can choose from classics like cheesecake, squidgy chocolate brownie or traditional Italian ice cream.
Expect your table to be dressed to impress and pre-order drinks to raise a glass to the festive season. Choose from house wines or sparkling prosecco in different menu options.
