Trattoria



What do you get when you cross local tomatoes, sauteed garlic and fresh basil?

What do you get when you cross family with happy noise - that particular musical clatter of people happily laughing, eating and chatting?

What do you get when you cross red checked tablecloths and retro straw coloured Chianti bottles with dripping wax red candles?

What do you get when you cross a family of five with a public holiday Anzac day?

What do you get when you cross some ♫Tarantella with some Funicul√¨, Funicul√† ♫ ?

What do you get when you cross some new laughter lines and candles to blow out?

In an new fashioned trattoria with all the smells and sounds and tastes of Italy, on our doorstep.

You get over excited children desperate for gelati.

You get a husband and a wife lingering over red wine and coffee.

You get a birthday dinner. Mine, to be precise.

Thank you for all the lovely messages I received yesterday...I feel much loved...
