Fancy a night out on 23rd February? Here is our suggestion for something a wee bit different… A Theme Night at Al Dente Restaurant. Here is what Graziano from the restaurant says:-
Our latest theme night “Veneto” the region Venice is capital of!
In February there is a big thing going on in venice called Carnevale.
Carnevale is a festivity where everybody must wear masks and costumes, it’s a beautiful experience.
I’ll try to represent it in the restaurant on the 23rd of February by showing you videos of it as well as beautiful places you could see in the lagoon.
I lived there for a year and an half before moving to Edinburgh therefore I am particularly attached to it! The menu is very different from the previous Venetian night and The wine I can ensure you will surprise you. Don’t forget about your chance to win a bottle of wine too!
Glass of Prosecco and aperol with canapés on arrival
Pasticcio di radicchio

Risotto al nero di seppia

Dentice alla veneta
Snapper oven baked in a casserole with fresh crushed tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, capers, anchovies, black olives and oregano
Typical dessert of Padua.This cake requires a rather laborious process, that’s probably his name. It consists of two layers of pastry, interspersed with zabaglione cream. Everything is decorated with chopped almonds and dark chocolate flakes.
Te o Caffe
