Pasta Poetry Courtyard Sessions
With handmade pasta dishes, signature spritz and bocce, this summer courtyard pop-up will transport you straight to Bologna.
Fairfield pasta boutique and kitchen Pasta Poetry is celebrating the launch of its dreamy new al fresco courtyard by putting it to extra good use over the balmy summer months. Right through until the end of February, the sunny space will be turning on the charms and hosting your ultimate aperitivo session, every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Head along from 3pm and find yourself transported to a summer day in Bologna. A weekly rotating food offering delivers top-notch antipasto, sides and classic desserts, along with the venue's expertly crafted pasta varieties — served by the entree size, so you don't have to limit yourself to sampling just one. Get set for the likes of ox cheek-filled cappelletti or chickpea gnocchi in rich sugo, perhaps chased with a Caprese-style chocolate torte for dessert.
Meanwhile, you'll be quaffing local brews, wines and spirits — think, 3 Ravens' New World IPA, Pizzini prosecco from King Valley and Melbourne Gin Company gin. There's also a handful of summery cocktails including an elderflower spritz and a reworked negroni. And all the while, you can be engaging in a spot of friendly competition on the central bocce court.
