Be transported to Italy with recently opened restaurant, Fontana. Kick things off with their fantastic Martini, then move onwards and upwards to the insanely good Mozzarella in Carrozza, Polpette de Sarde (sardine ‘meatballs’), Paccheri pasta in Kangaroo Ragu and Fontana’s signature Carpaccio Fruiti de Mare. And if you think you’ve tasted Ricotta, think again when you order the Fontana version that is house-made every morning.
