The latest venue from Black Sheep Restaurants, Osteria Marzia was inspired by its co-founders’ summer road trips along the Italian coast. Designed as a rustic osteria (a simple restaurant that serves wine and local dishes), it highlights the fresh, seasonal produce and bright, clean flavours of southern Italy. Helming the kitchen is head chef Luca Marinelli, who trained under Mauro Uliassi in Le Marche. The menu includes crudo (raw fish), salads, pastas and grilled mains. Try the Mediterranean-inspired raw red prawn dressed with Sorrento lemon and olive oil, bucatini con sarde (pasta with Sicilian anchovies and sardines) and lombata Marzia, or beef sirloin grilled with anchovy butter and shallots.
