Q3 2019

12 | Q3 2019 There’s something truly special about a favourite dish cooked to perfection by a true master in their craft. This would certainly go some way to explain why I Giardini di Sorrento has become as popular as it has over the last couples of years, with patrons new and old becoming enchanted by the restaurant’s dedication to authenticity and taste. For Massimo, this remains one of the restaurant’s core tenets and a crucial key to it’s enduring success. “The vast majority of our dishes are homemade and lovingly created using family recipes and the finest of ingredients sourced directly from the Sorrentine Peninsula. In addition to an exciting a la carte menu, we boast a famous specials board -updated daily- with a selection of homemade favourites, including Wild Boar Ravioli, Lamb Ragu, Lobster, Seafood, Pizza and Desserts. “I Giardini di Sorrento’s extensive wine cellar incudes the finest regional wines including a few that are made from grapes grown on the sides of Mount Vesuvius. We also have a good selection of Champagnes that ensure our restaurant is a perfect venue to toast any celebration.” Massimo adds. Yet, Massimo dedicates much of the restaurant’s success to the entire team, and their efforts to ensure a truly exceptional experience for any guest as soon as they step over the threshold. “Our whole team is the key to our business’ current success. Many have been here since the restaurant opened. Moreover, we take regular trips back home to Sorrento to keep up to date with changes in flavours and discover new recipes to bring back to Wales.” For an Authentic Italian Experience in the Heart of Cardiff Based in Cardiff, I Giardini di Sorrento Italian Restaurant is an award-winning establishment that specialises in authentic Sorrentine cuisine.
