Mouth-watering menu

The menu at Caffé Pinguini relies on the best fresh ingredients and family recipes that Tony and Enrico brought with them from their native Italy.

Although they don’t change the menu on a monthly basis, daily specials – sometimes up to 12 different ones – are a fixture at the restaurant. On the regular menu, you will find some popular Italian dishes for cold and hot Antipasti such as a Caprese salad or Spinaci Aglio, Olio e Peperocino (fresh spinach sautéed with garlic, olive oil, and red chili peppers) but then Pomodoro e Cipolla (fresh sliced tomatoes and onions, topped with basil and anchovies) shows up.
