A feast for the ages Some restaurants are good for a quick bite to eat, and some are designed for those times when you want a long and leisurely meal. Grappa Ristorante e Bar definitely falls in the second category. Gather some friends, come with an empty stomach and spend a few hours working your way through the spectacular menu. Start with some mixed olives before trying some of the vibrant appetisers such eggplant parmigiana or zucchini flowers stuffed with four types of cheese. Next try one of the freshly made pastas, like the tagliolini with crab and cherry tomatoes, before moving onto the mains such as the whole snapper baked in salt. There is also a delicious selection of wood-fired pizzas that are perfect for sharing. If you have room, finish off with some pavlova italiana (made with Italian meringue, blueberries, raspberries, passion fruit and crème patisserie) and – of course – a shot of grappa, the fragrant Italian brandy that is the very best way to complete a veritable Italian feast. Best dish: pizza with smoked ham, tomato, mozzarella, artichokes, olives and mushrooms.
