Signorelli Gastronomia is located in the Accenture/Google building and its not really where you’d think “oh, I’ll head here to have dinner” unless you’re aware of it and what they do. They do Italian and this was a good food month visit and we discovered them thus. They had an incredible food offer (heaps of wine and eats) for an amazingly affordable price of $65 – a Northern Italian Degustation. We dropped in for dinner, it’s a 6 courser with arrivio – and heaps of wine. Put this place on your radar because it really was great value with great food
Interestingly, in Signorelli Gastronomia – there is a deli, a wine shoe and a cheese cold room. There’s a cooking school aspect (see our Macaron Class Post) and this was a bit of a surprise. This was a well attended dinner that was packed.
A look at the various wines that Signorelli picked to pair with the eats. There’s a good range here. Finishing with Pedro Ximenez with the donut dish was nice. The menu below is worth a look at as it shows the pairings.
In sequence of eats, we had the Sheppard’s Feast, an interesting soft egg dish surrounded with Bresola, buck wheat chips and conte cheese. The simple rustic quality of the food that we ate tonight was interesting and of course, very soft and gooey. Made us think of 63 degree eggs which is very on trend currently. Carpa in Caprione came next and this was paired with a SA riesling and very nice and clean. Farrow Minestrone followed and this was very rustic and unfamiliar; farro not being a common grain. Salmone di Ruscello and Guancia di Manzo followed (River Trout and Beef Cheek). We quite liked the river trout with crispy skin and wild nettles. The Beef cheek dish was well braised, flavoursome and melted. Wrapping up this meal was Castagnole alle Mele (Italian Donuts ) and this was paired with Pedro Ximenez – always a good dessert wine option.
During the dinner, staff was attentive and it was a well paced degustation and again – that $65 included all the wine and eats. It was ridiculous value. There was plenty to eat and plenty to drink – Incredible value. We’re not familiar with Signorelli’s standard menu otherwise but between this and the macaron class we recently attended. We’re fans. Food at the degustation was good, service great with friendly staff.
