Our beautiful, locally-sourced crab, which fills our hand-crafted tortleloni, are robustly flavoursome and have been cherished by Italian chefs since the days of Ancient Rome. To do justice to this veritable tradition, we have selected the very best Devon crab, bringing you some of the freshest - and most delicious - crab available in the country, combining with mascarpone cheese to create a filling for our striking tortelloni that is at once light and creamy. We source our marscarpone from Abbiategrasso, located southwest of Milano, where it has been produced since the 16th-century. We've also taken the liberty of infusing our tortelloni with charcoal, imparting a deep onyx hue, guaranteed to impress dinner party guests and invite guesses as to the origins of the beautiful black.
We serve our hand-crafted tortelloni with samphire - known poetically in Italian as asparagi di mare ("asparagus of the sea") - as well as a delicate parsley butter to enhance the fresh seaside flavour of this show-stopping seafood dish. We finish with a generous sprinkling of our lemon pangrattato, guaranteeing an authentic taste of the Italian seaside.
