Our menus are based on the season sourcing premium 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 food so we import a few premium Italian ingredients that we love, such as Frantoio Cutrera Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Chiaramonte, Sicily. We have also collaborated with a local (Mudgee) olive grower & oil producer and have created our very own delicious blend of premium olive oil to compliment the Italian flavours in our kitchen.
