I nostri Ravioli!

Bongusto’s ravioli are the star of our menu. Just imagine sitting down to a generous portion of fresh, lovingly-filled delectable beef, salmon or spinach and ricotta filled parcels. Free from preservatives or added sugar, this product contains only the finest of ingredients, including natural semolina flour and a dash of Sicilian sea-salt. Enjoy our ravioli paired with a heart-warming glass of Toscano Cabernet – a dining experience that will leave you in heaven!

Pizza a taglio Roman style

As you bite into a slice of our specialty, thin-crust Roman pizza straight from the oven your mind and soul will be transported da favola – into a fairytale of culinary delight. Just a touch of Italian olive oil gives the pizza crust more weight, flavour, and a crispy crunch. For our sauce and toppings, we select simple, yet flavoursome ingredients, with all produce hand-picked from local markets.
