From the moment we stepped in and was greeted by the owner and heard the italian music in the background, we felt like we were back in Florence. (The owners are Sicilian but we never been to Sicily so not sure what Sicily is like.)
It was a birthday treat for my husband and 5 years after our Italy holiday where we had such good memories of the Bistecca Alla Florentina, we were really looking forward to trying the one at Casa Tartufo.
Simply Delicioso - wait. I think thats Mexican.
Anyway. The food at Casa is AMAZING.
Beef Carparcio with Summer Black Truffles - I dont think Ive HAD truffles until now. Rolling the beef with truffles and argula, all the flavours blended and burst in my mouth. Yum.
Prosciutto - A little salty for me but my hubs cleaned out the plate.
Bistecca - Medium Rare to perfection. The meat was so tender it was almost like a hot knife through butter. The taste? Like hot butter melting in your mouth. 24 hours in and I still remember the exact notes.
For dolci - the Lemon Tart is to die for and my husband polished his salted chocolate tart.
I have only good things to say about the service. Attentive but not intrusive, the owner and 2 staff immediately belted Happy Birthday in Italian when they learnt it was my husband's birthday.
After dinner, they did an extremely good job in upselling. Inviting us to the rooftop bar for more drinks.
I love love this place.
