Grazing platters:
Our San Daniele prosciutto 24 – month, grissini with buffalo mozzarella is one of the best grazing platters. A great way to dine on tasty food while you settle into your date night and browse the menu for your main of choice. Why not start with a delicious cocktail like a Espresso Martini, or a glass of bubbles?

No date night is complete without dining on our mood setting oysters! Our freshly shucked oysters are served on a plate with pickled pear and wild lime dressing. This is a great entrée to enjoy with a glass (or bottle!) of our Chardonnay.

What’s more romantic than a scene out of Lady and the Tramp? Our Pappardelle with a beef and pork ragu would be the perfect meal to share, as it is very filling and rich. No bowl of pasta is complete without a big glass of your favourite red!

Little entrée’s that come out singularly are perfect for sharing. Our mushroom arancini are the yummiest and easiest things to share when on a lovely date night. Beautifully paired with a glass of Pinot Grigio.
