It’s not often that us South Africans stumble across authentic Italian cuisine, so we’re always delighted to find a gem like Enrico’s that would make any Italian proud. With its mind-blowingly beautiful position and lip-smacking menu, Ristorante Enrico has the winning combination of delectable views and delicious food.
Start with the anti pasti menu, consisting of Italian favourites such as insalata di mare, which includes prawns, mussels, a piece of linefish and calamari strips, or the more South African flavoured kudu and avocado dish. Fresh seafood is prepared with expert Italian flare, such as the kingklip fillet, with shrimp, caper and cream sauce. Veal is served with cream and a green peppercorn sauce, or more of a lemon and white wine sauce. Linefish is baked with olive oil, white wine, a touch of garlic and ‘lots of imagination’!
Pizza is kept fairly simple, with pasta is a delight, with dishes such as the penne fegatini, with chicken livers, artichokes and cream. Handmade ravioli comes dressed in a sauce of tomato, mushrooms, cream and a touch of chilli. Finish off with an unforgettable Italian dessert, like the tiramisu, tartufo and cassata or just a simple grappa.
