Our History

Good food from good sources form our family recipe
Puglia our home in Italy.

Authentic Italian Recipes

Arancino, Burrata, Polpette della Nonna a recipe passed down to Giacomo from his mamma, we always create our dishes the Italian authentic way. And you don’t have to be a vegetarian to enjoy one of our most popular dishes Melanzane Parmigiana.

All complemented with a glass of authentic Italian wine.

Humble beginnings

Growing up in the stunning countryside of Puglia, Giacomo learned the art of traditional Italian cooking and hospitality from his wonderful family.

The influence of the region has stayed with him and as his career has progressed he has always recognised the importance of combining the traditional with good food, wine and entertainment. 

Today, you’ll find all this AND more at Giacomo’s Ristorante.

Tending guests has always been the business of our family
Mixing tradition with fresh influences and atmosphere.
