Step into Cavalli Club and you immediately get the feeling that the space might turn into a runway with stunning, exotic models waiting to strut their fashionable stuff. But when a restaurant bears the inimitable imprint of veteran designer Roberto Cavalli, right from the zebra prints on the chairs to the glittering chandeliers, cushions, crockery and cutlery, you can be forgiven for wanting to simply revel in its designer luxury. It’s not just the ambiance, Cavalli scores where it matters the most – the food. The delights on this menu include a wide range of international delicacies, with vintage caviars and oysters stealing the show. The hand-dived scallop carpaccio served with peppercorns and pineapple is so fresh and delicately flavoured that you feel as though you have had a dip in the sea. Vegetarians can try the hot and sizzling arancini siciliana served with sundried tomato sauce. The ravioli stuffed with butternut squash and made crunchy with walnuts roasted in sage butter makes for an excellent main course. Among the sweet bites, the bitter chocolate torte served with rosemary pear and cinnamon ice cream transports you straight to dessert heaven.
