September Menus!

September 6, 2011

Just in time for Autumn, we’ve got not one by two new menus for you! Join us for Lunch or Dinner and enjoy fresh Scottish ingredients with authentic Italian flavours at centotre

Fresh, Simple, Italian. The very best ingredients simply prepared, served fresh and best enjoyed with family and friends. We take fresh local ingredients from our Scottish larder and add authentic Italian flavours delivered direct from the Milano markets weekly, exclusively for us.

From Scotland this month we’ve sourced new season wood pigeon from Burnside Farm in the Tweed Valley, near Kelso. Burnside is family run farm which has been in the Rutherford family since the 12th century! We’re proud to support a wide range of Scottish suppliers, including Peelham Farm in Foulden for our organic veal, Inverurie Gold for our sirloin steak and Carroll’s Heritage in The Borders for our potatoes.

From Italy we receive pallets of our fresh vegetables, several varieties of tomatoes, Mozzarella di Bufala and Burrata. Our Mozzarella di Bufala comes direct from Mondragone in Campagna, it’s made on a Thursday, delivered to Milan on the Friday and is with us on the Monday. You can’t get any fresher than this. Our Burrata comes on the same route direct from Lecce in Puglia.

Buying direct from both our Scottish and Italian suppliers means we cut out the middle men and the warehouses, and ensures we serve only the freshest produce. It’s also a guaranteed investment in the farms and in their people. These choices are key and have always been at the heart of our love of good food. We hope you can taste all the hard work, enthusiasm and commitment invested in all our lovely food. Buon appetito!

Watermelon Martini – June Cocktail!!

June 6, 2011

It’s back!! Juicy, delicious and perfect for a drink in the sun or an evening treat with friends!

We get our fresh watermelon delivered direct from Milano, full of the flavours of Italian summer sunshine. We mix it with your choice of either Finlandia Vodka or Tanqueray Gin and add a splash of Martini Dry!

And, join us from 3pm until 6pm every Sunday to Friday for our famous Aperitivo Hour and enjoy free chips and olives with your cocktail!

Fresh From Milano!

April 28, 2011

Buying our Italian fruit and vegetables direct from the market in Milano ensures we serve only the freshest Italian flavours! We try and go over as much as possible so we don’t miss anything! Victor was there over two months ago and Carina will visit at the end of May.

We speak to our supplier every few days and receive a couple if deliveries each week. Violet aubergines, courgettes, several varieties of tomatoes, cremini mushrooms, new season pears, asparagus, onions, Amalfi lemons and so so so much more.

The produce we get is premium quality, each item coming from small largely organic farms throughout the regions of Italy. Pears from Emilia Romagna, tomatoes from Sicily, ramato tomatoes from Puglia, asparagus from Venito.  So exciting, so fresh, so simple and so Italian. Enjoy!

Don’t forget Dinner!

November 2, 2010

Don’t worry if you missed lunch, our new dinner menu is just as delicious!

The Autumn harvest has bought us some fantastic ingredients direct from the Milano Markets. Our exclusive delivery includes Italian artichokes, borlotti beans, figs, pears and cima di rape to name but a few. Supporting Italy but complimented by Scotland’s fantastic larder, we use only Scottish-water fish, the best Scottish beef and game and wonderful organic root vegetables from East Lothian.
The dark nights may be getting longer, but our plates will be full of fresh flavours to brighten your palate! Health and happiness to you all!
Victor, Carina and our team.
