Inside, in its contempora­ry dining space where elements in iron, glass and wood interact with brightly- coloured ceramics from Ischia, customers can sample a wide selection of antipasti, starters and main courses featuring the best of surf and turf, with a particular focus on fish- based dishes of Mediterran­ean inspiratio­n. The ingredient­s, selected on a seasonal basis, are used to create pasta specialtie­s ranging from the great classics like “Spaghetti alle vongole” or “Chitarrucc­e with lobster”, to more creative dishes resulting from the meeting of Northern and Southern Italian influences, including “Linguine in Crosta alla Catullo with seafood and porcini mushrooms” or “Black ravioli with red Mazara del Vallo shrimp and Pachino cherry tomatoes”. The restaurant also caters to the tastes of meat lovers with main courses that include more elaborate dishes like “Bison Rib Eye with a reduction of Nebbiolo” and “Ratte potatoes, braised veal cheek with celeriac rice” and mouth-watering grilled meats. Catullo also boasts a rich selection of Neapolitan pizzas baked according to tradition in a woodfired oven. Diners in the mood for romance can book a table in the restaurant's outdoor area with windows overlookin­g the Po river and the illuminate­d Isabella Bridge, which connects the river's two banks (www.ristorante­catullo.com). 29 www. wheretrave­ler. c om
