These include “One Day In Amalfi Coast” (lemon & burrata risotto with prawns & oregano dust), “Seabass a la Scapece” (slow cooked seabass, zucchini, black olives, mint and chilli pepper), “Parmigiana Napoletana” (his take on the classic eggplant parmigiana served with a delicate puff pastry and basil mashed potatoes) and a dish that he fondly calls “Childhood Memories” (cocoa cake, red wine & chocolate sauce, strawberry & truffle)

    Chef Davide Di Domenico says, “With my stint at Prego, guests can look forward to a blend of authentic Italian classics infused with innovative twists, presented in contemporary styles. Additionally, I believe that food should satisfy not only the palate but also captivate the eyes. It’s more than just nourishment; it’s a journey back to cherished moments spent with loved ones.
