An Authentic Taste of Italy

Generous Helpings of Classic Italian Café Cuisine

Taste of Italy’s food is generous, satisfying and we don’t compromise on quality.  The Crolla family has, over the years, forged strong and lasting relationships with the best artisan food suppliers and winemakers in Italy and make regular visits to meet with them, to review the product range and identify possible new ingredients.

There’s our delicious spicy salami, made from pork leg or shoulder and cured with chilli flakes & black pepper, which takes six weeks to make; our sauces are made with rich double cream, not cheap béchamel imitations; there’s no skimping on our egg pasta which contains a high proportion of six free-range, organic eggs per kilo, while our durum wheat pasta is sourced from Gragnano, outside Naples; and a large number of products we use are DOP / IGP certified, from our Extra Virgin Olive Oil to our Bufala Campana.

We also offer up classic Italian desserts including our own recipe ice creams and sundaes, created using our exclusive Italian crema gelato made with Madagascan vanilla pods.

While other ingredients and products are sourced more locally, the family is unequivocal in selecting those with the finest provenance, including organic free range chicken and beef from Aberdeen.

And, for customers with dietary allergies or sensitivities, Taste of Italy makes life easy with a wide range of gluten-free, nut free and lactose free dishes, as well as vegetarian dishes.

Our philosophy is simple… to offer food sourced with an eager eye for provenance and quality, offering a genuine taste of Italy and experience!
