There's no better place in Brisbane to enjoy regional classics and seek out exciting, low-intervention Italian wines than this elegant destination that could almost be in the Eternal City. Outside, pretty footpath settings are buffered from the street by potted olives and hanging geraniums. Inside, you're greeted by smart, linen-topped tables, upholstered booths and a marble-topped bar. Zucchini flowers stuffed alla Romana with mozzarella and anchovies kick things off well, but vitello tonnato is even finer - rosy veal slices curled into buds in a big-flavoured tuna mayo-style sauce, dotted with capers and olives. Creamy carnaroli risotto arrives topped with goat's cheese, zucchini, petals and peas, while saltimbocca is crowned with prosciutto, asparagus and fried sage leaves. A zuppa Inglese, laced with mango and limoncello and finished with mascarpone pleats, is as rich as the accents of an assured Italian floor team - and just as charming.
