Venison Carpaccio Appetizers
First up, we have a Carpaccio Di Cervo, Maionese Alle Erbe Composta Di Ciliegie E Pecorino Tartufato €14.40 – Venison Carpaccio with herb mayonnaise, truffle flavoured pecorino cheese and cheery jam.
The texture was crunchy and mushy, tastes sweet and salty, while has an identical traditional mixed spices kick, without a doubt, serves as a great starter! 😉
*Other in-house starter includes; bruschetta bread with mozzarella cheese, cold smoked salmon mascarpone with dressings and Leonardo mixed starter plate.
Signature Seafood Soup
This is by far the best western style soup that we had tried before (that earns Leonardo a Must Try in our lists), Zuppa Di Pesce Con Pane All’ Aglio €14.90 – Seafood Soup with Garlic Bread.
Overall tastes like lobster bisque but the soup was clearer and owns an even more complex aftertaste, not hard to understand when you found out that the soup ingredients are consists of mini lobster, giant prawn, mussels, fish slices, and other selected seafood! 😉
*You can take this soup as a main dish, considering the generous seafood amount from the soup plus refillable carbs (garlic bread) that serves with the dish.
Aged Cheese & Beef Steak
Here comes our main course, Controfiletto Di Manzo Con Burro Al Tartufo, Scaglie Di Parmigiano 40 Mesi E Patate Al Rosmarino €29.90 – Marbled beef with truffled butter, 40-months aged parmesan, and rosemary garlic potatoes.
The steak itself is succulent, fatty and juicy, while overall has a distinctive taste/smell like blue cheese flavor within the perfectly char-grilled beefsteak, we would regard it as a two-edged sword as either you would like it or the other way round.
*Leonardo best main course also includes; chicken breast cheese fondue with risotto, lamb neck wine sauce with mashed potato, and foil baked salmon fillet in thyme lobster-wine stock.
