L’Artigiano - meaning ‘the artisan’ - aptly reflects the culinary techniques of talented Executive Chef Ignacio Ruggiero (Re Mauri, The Met) whose dishes are inspired by the seasons while remaining true to his Italian heritage - all served with a creative modern slant. Choose from a 2 or 3 course Set Lunch Menu, classic A La Carte Menu or the indulgent 8-course tasting menu with optional wine pairing. Dine on dishes from handmade pasta classics like their 36 yolk tagliatelle with slow cooked beef ragu to tortelli stuffed with native lobster and fresh pan-fried red mullet.
There's also a thoughtfully considered wine cellar stocking over 150 Italian wines including 30 available to enjoy by the glass from Barolo to Amarone as well us more unusual labels sourced from smaller vineyards in Italy. The unassuming yet homely dining room - with exposed brick walls painted charcoal and a skylight in the back room makes for a simple but yet refined backdrop for some incredible dishes.
