Good, Honest Italian
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.
