As for the food, let’s begin with some appetizers! The menu includes authentic Italian fare such as Bruschetta (grilled bread with tomato, basil) and Carpaccio (beef fillet with onion puree, parmesan). You could also try the Caesar Salad, or a bowl of Minestrone, which is a thick, Italian soup made with vegetables, tomatoes, beans, pasta, and parmesan.
Of course, Certo’s signature dishes are also a must-try: Fillet Rossini (Angus fillet steak with foie gras, black truffle), and L’anatra Arrosto (roast duck with pumpkin, shallots). Likewise, various meat and fish dishes are also available, such as Osso Buco (slow-braised veal shanks), Il Carre D’agnello (rack of lamb), Il Branzino al Forno (baked sea bass), L’aragosta alla Griglia (grilled lobster), Fritto Misto (deep-fried calamari), and much more!
Being an Italian resto, Certo serves popular dishes like pasta, pizza, and risotto as well. Top picks include Linguine Ai Fruitti Di Mare (seafood linguine), Rigatoni e Polpette (rigatoni pasta), Risotto agli Asparagi (grilled asparagus risotto), Pizza Margherita (basil and mozarella), Quattro Formaggi (four-cheese), and many other tasty dishes.
Notably, the desserts are distinctly Italian: Fondente Al Cioccolato (dark chocolate fondant) and Crostata Siciliana Glassata (glazed lemon tart), to name a few. There’s also Ice Cream in many flavours: strawberry, pistachio, cinnamon, etc. Everything sounds really good!
