Our menus are based on the season sourcing the best local produce from local farmers, fishers, growers and winemakers in NSW. We grow a substantial amount
of produce in our own gardens but are also passionate about authentic Italian ingredients so we import a few premium Italian ingredients that we love,
such as Frantoio Cutrera Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Chiaramonte, Sicily and Molino Quaglia Petra stoneground flours from Padova, Veneto, Acquerello
Rice, Vercelli, Piemonte & Amedei chocolate, Pontedera Toscana.
We endeavor to offer our guests an experience according to the philosophy of sharing a friendly conversation and meal with family and friends. To ensure a fabulous dining experience is achieved we have the below menus on offer to help your special occasion run smoothly.

For a seamless group experience (in particular groups over 10 people) we like our guests to choose from one of the group menus. Costs for a tailored group menu is either $90 for 2 courses or $100 for 3 courses. (Choice of menu style is available - either cocktail style, shared platters or a combination of shared platters and guest choice of main/dessert). Group bookings of 10 guests or less require a credit card number for security. A la carte menu is available for this size. Group bookings of 11 – 20 guests require a $200 deposit at time of booking plus room hire fee, if applicable. Groups of this size will have a specially designed menu tailored to suit. Group bookings of 20 guests or more, a deposit of 50% of the menu cost is required and an invoice will be sent to the client.
