DINERS can now enjoy a delicious taste of Italy for even longer on their doorstep after a refurbishment of a cosy trattoria in Delph.
La Rustica, at Saddleworth Business Centre, has been refreshed and redressed and now has longer opening hours, as well as a licence to serve alcohol.
The trattoria – formerly Delph Kitchen – was taken over by Lorenzo Porta and wife Alessandra in May, and they are now joined by their daughter and two grandsons to make it a real family affair.
Recent works include moving and enlarging the kitchen, adding a bar serving wine and continental craft bars, and a new counter with real Italian ice-creams, and a new menu.
Lorezno said: “Our menu is traditional, contemporary and casual, drawn from our Italian family heritage, and we pride ourselves on using fresh, Italian ingredients.
“We offer a mouth-watering selection of Italy’s foods including bean soups of Tuscany, great Florentine steaks, thin pizza slices, the stuffed focaccias of Apulia, the lamb of the south seasoned with chillies, vinegar and peppers or the rich, and creamy dishes of the great Bolognese plain.
“We’re not a fine dining restaurant, but we do have a lovely, relaxed atmosphere where you can eat, chat and enjoy the company of your family and friends.”
Whether you’re stopping by for an evening meal, grabbing a quick sandwich to take away or just treating yourself to an ice-cream, there is something on the menu for everyone.
There’s a scrumptious choice of home-made ciabattas, focaccias, frittatas, and piadinas to be filled with salamis, meats, and cheeses, and accompanied by antipasto dishes.
Or you can choose a pizza or pasta dish, or enjoy a fish or meat dish of the day.
