The Instinctively Italian Diciannove Launches “Menus Of Italy”

Menus of Italy

Italian restaurant Diciannove (formerly Refettorio) is launching Menus Of Italy; a series of evenings celebrating the campanilismo (pride) of regional Italian cooking.

The regional menus are designed by Head Chef Alessandro Bay who trained for ten years under Giorgio Locatelli before taking over in the restaurant when Locatelli moved on. The regional menus will be offered alongside the existing a la carte menu throughout the entire evening of the last Monday of each month and priced at £35 per person for three courses including a glass of Prosecco.

Naples (Monday 29th Feb) is the focus for February with dishes including impepata di cozze (mussel stew) homemade paccheri (pasta) and coniglio all’ Ischitana (a traditional rabbit stew from Ischia, an island located in the Gulf of Naples). The full menu is attached for your interest.

Tuscany (Monday 28th March) includes minestre Garfagnana (bean soup served with spelt from Garfagnana), pappardelle al sugo di anatra (fresh pappardelle with duck ragout) and triglie alla Livornese serviette con patate al profumo di oregano (Livornese-style red mullet served with potatoes perfumed with oregano). Full menu available on request.

Sicily (Monday 25th April) includes insalata di polipo alla Siciliana (Sicilian-style octopus salad), pasta con le sarde (fresh pasta with fresh sardines, fennel seeds, raisins and pine nuts) and involtino di vitello con provola Siciliana (roulade of veal filled with Sicilian provola). Full menu is available on request.

Venice and Puglia will follow in May and June respectively.

“Italy’s regions may only be a few miles apart but locals will always insist that the cooking from their home town is far superior to those around them. Our regional dinners will offer customers an insight into the different cooking styles and customs that are shaped by geographic, historical, and climactic differences of the twenty regions across Italy.”
Alessandro Bay, Executive Head Chef
