When the end of the year comes around and it’s time to celebrate, you want to find a venue that ticks all the boxes for style, ambiance and amazing food. Well, we’ve found it for you! This Italian restaurant by one of the Britain’s most successful celebrity chefs delivers the lot. It’s set in an impressive building with a sweeping glass front, with a waterfront view of the River Kennet. Inside the vibe is contemporary, with stripped wood, painted metal chairs along with comfy banquette seating.
The open kitchen lets you see the chefs work their magic against a backdrop of fine Italian produce. The menu is bursting with crowd-pleasing dishes, all expertly constructed for taste and presentation. Of course, pasta is a strong point, with inspired dishes that are a league beyond your average spag bol. There are mains to appeal to hungry carnivores and delicious veggie combinations. Starters include the likes of cured meats and mouth-watering bruschetta. And you can round off with some truly tempting desserts like squidgy chocolate brownie or ice cream.
As it’s Christmas, you can expect your table to be dressed to impress, with little touches to get you in the festive mood. You can raise a glass to the season with some sparkling prosecco, or go for a package that includes the carefully selected house wine in red, white or rosé. Of course, you can also order more drinks, either in advance, as part of the package, or on the day of your Christmas waterfront celebration.
