A local riff on the relaxed wine bars you'll find dotted throughout Italy, it's a low-key spot with a penchant for a few top drops with a back story. The wine selection heroes real, sustainable and natural creations from Aussie producers, delivered with minimal fuss and lots of respect. It'll feature just four or five winemakers at any one time, and change up regularly.
To match, group Head Chef Monty Koludrovic has pulled together a lineup of modern Italian-inspired bites his menus at The Dolphin and Icebergs are known for. Walk off the sand and into a feast of Calabrese meatballs, fried calamari and sardines with salsa verde. The main drawcard will be three varieties of fried pizza — which are small enough to be a personal snack, and are best matched to a bottle of something fun and local. For a touch of nostalgia, it's all served on classic silver plates.
