Garlic and mozzarella make for an ideal starter, especially if you are planning to go for a high protein main course. For those who prefer a little more heat, the signature Piatto starter, jalapeno poppers – crumbed and deep fried chillies stuffed with cheese and served with chillinaise salsa – will not disappoint.
For mains, try the linguine al pomodorini – pasta with prawns, cherry tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, chilli and parmesan shavings. It has just the right amount of heat, with a sweetness from the cherry tomatoes. The sirloin pepperdew also comes highly recommended, being perfectly cooked to preference while maintaining its tenderness and a subtle pink to the flesh. This 300g sirloin steak is filled with mozzarella, feta, pepperdews and mushroom, a perfectly complementary balance of flavours. The dish is served with a rice, mash or chips option. The chips, though chunky and perfectly cooked until golden and seasoned with a tasty spice, are rather disappointing in flavour, the taste of the oil too overpowering.
There is a wide range of desserts to pick from, although the Oreo pudding comes most highly recommended, with its generous alternating layers of pudding and crushed Oreo biscuits served with vanilla ice-cream.
A comprehensive bar menu includes Douglas Green house wines and a range of other local favourite wines, champagnes cocktails, and shooters.
