I am passionate about my ingredients and I use only the best of the best which I choose from all that Italy has to offer. Ricotta from Naples, Guanciale from Rome and Mozzarella from Naples The finest Olive Oil which I buy from Rome enriches every dish. My steaks are the best you will find in Dorset, my chicken is corn fed, my pizzas are made using the finest flour worked lovingly into a dough and my desserts are all homemade with Italian love.
