Attributes

  • Romantic
  • Outdoor Seating

Old Town Italy - the very word evokes a sense of history and a portal back to a time when life itself was defined by a seemingly more romantic set of values. Romantic values based on a simpler, slower and ‘better quality’ life. At Old Town Italy these values, as old fashion as they may be, still stand. Foundations, built slowly, forged by skill, fortitude, passion and dedication. It is about slowing things down, celebrating ethics, preserving standards and rediscovering quality. There was a time when a visit to your local grocery store was more of a social event than a chore. Where the butcher knew your preferences and the baker greeted you by name. A place where product knowledge, a hearty smile and sound advice was given freely. Old Town Italy’s mission is to restore these qualities and rekindle those experiences. After all, our body is our sanctuary, temple and the only one we have. Old Town Italy is an authentic Italian market where you can shop, talk, eat and learn.

    The chefs were fantastic but otherwise disorganized event. The waitress did not inform us that there was a starter and wine included and couldn’t explain what the starters were. Started late and by the time we got a starter it had been 2 and a half hours and then ate our pasta after 9pm. The actual pasta making and the chefs that came around to assist us were fantastic but the rest the service and running of the event was not good.
