Newly appointed Head of Product Development, Anita Thoma (formerly of Il Primo) has worked to bring new suppliers on board and to curate dishes that even meat lovers will find moreish.
With small plates starting from €3.25, customers are invited to enjoy Sprezzatura staples such as Tartine Sourdough baked in Dublin by Tartine Organic Bakery, and new additions such as the Garryhinch Wild Mushroom Bruschetta, grown in Co. Laois.
Arancini will also be a core focus on the new menu, expanding the Arancini offering from one to four. This will include vegan arancini, a first for Sprezzatura.
