Good, Honest Ital­ian

SLOW Magazine - - Must Do -

Nelson Man­dela Square’s lat­est ad­di­tion, Sep­timo Ital­ian Mar­ket and Restau­rant, comes to this coun­try with an im­pres­sive pedi­gree. Sep­timo – Ital­ian for “seventh” – rep­re­sents the seven decades of a tra­di­tion pre­par­ing fam­ily recipes and car­ing for ev­ery­one who takes a seat at the ta­ble. Paul Ly­cos, a third-gen­er­a­tion restau­ra­teur, is bring­ing these 70 years of flavour and tra­di­tion to lo­cal din­ers. Ex­pect dishes from Ly­cos’ child­hood, as well as more mod­ern fare in­spired by his trav­els. Dishes like: nos­tal­gic aubergine parmi­giana and ri­cotta lasagne; pan-seared sea bass with crispy skin, blis­tered cherry toma­toes, and cit­rus emul­sion; and grilled Mozam­bi­can prawns served with po­lenta cake and arra­bi­ata sauce. This is good, honest Ital­ian food at its very finest. Make a book­ing now at www.sep­timo.co.za.
