Everyone loves pizza but a calzone offers a chance to try something different without straying too far from the doughy deliciousness we know and love. The calzone at Cantina e Cucina is a classic – a folded pizza full of the melty mozzarella stretch that makes us all smile as well as ham and mushrooms for good measure. There is a rich tomato and fresh basil sauce for delectable dunking too – we dare you not to.
This dish is surely the prince (or princess) of pasta. Lobster, luxury and loveliness all in one meal. The delicate little pasta parcels are filled with lobster and served bobbing in a creamy tomato sauce that’s infused with chilli and swimming generously with prawns. It’s a seafood spectacular.
Two generous grilled veal escalopes and a simple rocket and cherry tomato salad. It’s what clean, summery Italian eating is about. Little touches like the hint of rosemary in the dressing and the spot-seasoning on the veal prove that there are deft hands at work in the Cantina e Cucina kitchen.
Silky pasta strands wrapped around plump perfectly cooked clams and served with chilli, garlic and cherry tomatoes in a buttery white wine sauce, this one is a real Confidential favourite and one we’ll definitely be coming back for.
This is perfect for sharing as a starter or even just for nibbling with a bottle of Prosecco. The platter is loaded – literally piled high – with the best of Italian deli goodies: marinated olives, cured meats, chargrilled vegetables like aubergine and courgette, ripe tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, rocket salad and fresh bread.
