Sharing Nonna's handwritten recipes along with Mamma in the kitchen, Alba Salentinian Restaurant on King Street dishes up a taste of regional Italy to Newtown diners. A warm and rustic ambience of exposed brick, subway tiles and blackboard specials on the walls, sets the scene for authentic dining from a menu championing the cuisine from the Southern Italian province of Salento. Aiming to keep traditions alive through generations, expect to delve into oven-baked potato gratin, slow-cooked tomatoes, onions, capers, olives, mint and pecorino; before saying buon appetito to overnight marinated octopus, cooked with potatoes, tomatoes, red wine and herbs, served with bread. Pasta lovers will salivate over housemade tria, with mussels, garlic and chilli sauce, chickpea purée and fried pasta.
