Fancy an authentic Italian culinary experience? Helmed by Chef-Owner Loris, a native Italian with over 30 years of experience serving up the finest Italian flavours, Ristorante Pietrasanta looks forward to the new season with a fresh menu.
Observing the change in season and climate, the new menu is a celebration of traditions with a series of debuting dishes that honour Italian flavours at their roots. Look forward to an array of house-made sauces, imported hams, fresh greens, and handmade pasta done just the way the Italians would.
Highlighting the beauty of authentic and time-honoured gems from Tuscany, indulge in new starters like the Bruschetta Con Vongole E Pomodoro, a novel take on the regular Bruschetta with juicy clams in a rich tomato sauce served with grilled fresh bread and garlic parsley, and Tagliere Toscano, featuring generous slices of parma ham, mortadella, and salami with parmesan cheese on a tomato bruschetta.
Refreshing salads for something lighter on the palate include the unique Insalata di Cavolo Nero, an organic Lacinato salad made with Tuscan kale, raisins, almonds, apples, and blue cheese. Then warm your stomach with the new La Ribollita soup, a traditional vegetable soup native to Tuscany, simmered to a sweet fragrance then topped with crispy croutons.
Moving on to new pasta options, there’s the iconic Pici Cacio E Pepe with house-made pici pasta in an incredibly rich pecorino cheese sauce, and vibrant Tagliatelle Al Nero Di Seppia Ai Frutti Di Mare, an old favourite from the restaurant’s early days featuring squid ink spaghetti fragranced with white wine, ample seafood, and olive oil. Another signature of the brand, their fresh Tordelli Al Ragu Chiantigiano ravioli comes filled with juicy minced beef and chard, cooked in a traditional Chianti-style beef Bolognese sauce with a dash of red wine.
Previously available only on seasonal and special menus, the Secreto Alla Griglia now returns as a permanent fixture. Meat-lovers will love its prime-cut black pork shoulder, accompanied with roasted potatoes and a mesclun salad.
Other highlights to look out for include the new Burrata E Pomodorini pizza with Ristorante Pietrasanta’s secret burrata cheese, and desserts like Profiterols and Vin Santo E Cantucci sweet wine.
