A Roman-inspired spot featuring an extensive selection of wines by the glass.
August 15, 2022
The classic Italian tradition of aperitivo is more than just a pre-meal drink to warm up the appetite — it's a whole vibe. And that laidback energy is evident all day at L'uva Pasta & Wine Bar, one of a suite of new food and beverage outlets that's adding new life to 25 Martin Place (formerly known as the MLC Centre).
This Roman-inspired spot is a prime location for a relaxed catch-up in the heart of the CBD, featuring cosy leather banquettes and an understated colour palette throughout. Take it all in with a selection from the excellent wine list which showcases boutique vineyards from Australia, Italy, as well as a handful from France — there's a more than handy selection available by the glass and carafe, too. Also on offer is a tight list of classic and signature cocktails designed with aperitivo hour in mind.
The one-page food menu at L'uva features a considered range of share plates that'll tempt you to hang around for a bit. Highlights include a pillowy nduja gnocchi with cime di rapa, housemade focaccia with a zingy caponata dip and a signature Sardinian fregola with slow-braised octopus.
