Named in honour of the vibrant Sicilian open air market, Ballaro offers diners a tantalising taste of Italy.
Now accepting the tastecard, members who call in advance can indulge in all manners of Italian dishes, both classic and contemporary, at a fantastic price.
Begin the experience with one of the superb starters, such as the tantalising Polpo alla Palermitana, steamed octopus presented on a bed of dattertini tomatoes, capers and olives, the scrumptious Polpette di Melanzane, aubergine balls paired with a celery pesto, and the hearty Scamorza alla Piastra, grilled smoked cheese partnered with Sicilian style mixed vegetables.
A cornucopia of classic pizza and pasta dishes adorn the menu, as is to be expected from an Italian restaurant, yet there are also some truly irresistible main courses also available that showcase some of the lesser known delights from the cuisine. Particularly merit worthy meals include the eclectic Guazzetto di Pesce, a mixed fish stew complete with chickpeas and broad beans, and the heavenly Coniglio con Lenticchie, oven baked rabbit with smoked cheese and slow cooked lentils.
A perfect spot for a quaint, informal meal, Ballaro also serves a wealth of wondrous wines, the likes of which can all be perfectly paired with each dish. The friendly staff will be more than willing to assist with this, as well as provide excellent service to ensure the dining experience is pleasant one.
Please Note: The tastecard discount will not be available on the 27th of December.
