AcquaFresca by Pilu is a casual Italian trattoria brought to you by renowned Italian Chef, Giovanni Pilu and his team from Freshwater. This new venture will cater for all ages – locals, families and visitors to the Northern Beaches. The restaurant is open to the spectacular view and includes alfresco dining and an eat in bar.
The restaurant resembles a beachside trattoria on the coast of Italy where guests will enjoy a unique Italian experience with the option of a central, communal table.
The menu includes all your Italian favourites, done well – simple, tasty dishes using, fresh, seasonal ingredients. The menu is divided into an extensive antipasti list, pasta, secondi (mains), dolci (desserts) and pizza. Many of the dishes are sharing style plates, the true Italian way to eat with family and friends.
The restaurant is fully licensed and offers a range of Italian and local wines, plenty by the glass and of course a great selection of Italian cocktails and aperitifs. Think classic negronis and a list of spritzes, along with local and artisan beers.
The food is affordable and the value of each dish rests in the simplicity and quality of the ingredients. We roll fresh pasta on a daily basis, bake our own focaccia and grissini and prove our pizza dough made from organic flour for 48 hours.
Open for lunch and dinner seven days a week. AcquaFresca is suitable for groups of 2-50 and reservations are accepted for lunch and dinner.
