Truffle Degustation Season

Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy some of the best Australian truffles in our Osteria and to visit Madame Truffles pop-up shop in our Cantina!

Madame Truffle is a specialist truffle retailer and will be here during the season, with a pop-up shop downstairs (Wed-Sun, 10.00am-5.00pm). For the past six years, the Madame has been selling a wide range of fresh quality Australian truffles (tuber melanosporum): in our Cantina you can now find truffle ice cream, truffle honey, truffle salt and, of course, amazing truffle pasta such as the potato&truffle ravioli.

Truffles are harvested fresh each week and the Madame takes great care in choosing them, as well as Anna and our chef select carefully the best Emilian recipes for you to discover this treasure.

We will have daily specials and a new degustation menu every Thursday in July*, bringing on your table different products, from the smoky truffles of Braidwood NSW to the pungent cheesy truffles of Manjimup WA.
