The Italy Collection
The world’s love affair with Italian food doesn’t seem to be waning. Ours isn’t either, thus prompting us to shortlist our favourites from our travels to Italy
Beautiful romantic setting & great food. Recommend the tasting menu & wines.
You just have to visit Harry's Bar in Venice. Not the best food in the world but the heritage and history can be felt in the air. Recommended - Scampi in curry sauce.
Fab food especially the game and pasta dishes they have on offer
Boutique del Gelato
Excellent ice cream with some really quirky flavours
Locanda Di Castelvecchio
A True authentic Northern Italian experience, the roast carving trolley is amazing showcasing the best of Italian roasted meats. Great location in the centre of town. Rooms above in case you over indulge
Their range off DOP artisan hams are interesting and unique. It’s a restaurant built around 1 product – ham! There is also a free tour of their Prosciutto museum after lunch which is a must do.
Really lovely, simple Osteria
Modern take on a classic Milan bakery with a cool vibe and bustling locals drop in joint. Stop at the bar and have an espresso and croissant like the locals do!
Tired of classic Italian cusine and need a place with a great vibe? Visit the Townhouse Carfe at La Bandita Townhouse in Pienze. Sit amongst the memorabilia from the owners time at Sony and take in the peace of this beautiful Tuscan town.
Ai Promessi Sposi
Back-street gem for both cicchetti at the bar and sit down dinner
In the historic center of Parma, a few steps from the Ducal Park, the Pinacoteca and the Teatro Regio, is the Trattoria Corrieri, an ancient restaurant that for centuries has satisfied travelers and inhabitants of the city. The restaurant owes its name to the times of the Duchess Maria Luigia, when the couriers stopped at this inn to eat and rest the horses tied to rings fixed in the wall, still visible today.
At the Trattoria Corrieri the traditional recipes of Parma are still respected today and the typical flavors of the place are enhanced.
Serves an amazing 7 course tasting menu with incredible wines in the most romantic of settings in the beautiful courtyard
