With Easter fast approaching, the Osteria team have decided to take a fresh look at the quintessential English Afternoon Tea. They will be sprinkling some Italian flair across three tiers of treats.
We have transformed the sandwich tier with authentic Italian breads such as Focaccia and Ciabatta topped with Italian cheeses, meats and pesto. The scones are re-imagined as delicious homemade panettone with lashings of seasonal jam and mascarpone. The final tier presents the best of Italian desserts with a mini tiramisu and stunning chocolate almond cake.
A pot of tea or coffee is provided, or you can upgrade to sparkling wines from Italy including both Prosecco and Franciacorta.
Olive Focaccia with Piquillo pepper and tomato
