Neil has designed a menu that includes a selection of his favourite regional recipes collected from extensive travels through Italy.
At the heart of Rosetta’s fast-paced kitchen is a wood fired oven and chargrill for creating simple Italian dishes such as suckling pig and roast chicken.
Of course, pasta features prominently on the menu with our dedicated la sfoglina hand-making over 10 different varieties, from maccheroncini and agnolotti to the more traditional fettuccine and gnocchi.
Our collection of wines is a celebration of what is unique about Italian wine. Such a long gastronomic history gives us the opportunity to explore and gain insights into the various regions and cultures that have developed over the centuries whilst maintaining distinct regional identities.
These wines are classic examples of vinous expressions of the region from which they originate. With this in mind, for this list we are putting more emphasis on the region the wines come from, than on the varietal that it’s made with.
