Pasta and other mains
When Italians gather for a meal it is always a celebration so it comes naturally to start each time with a toast with the expression: Alla Salute! which is the equivalent of “cheers” and literally “to your health”. Alla Salute’s cuisine is inspired by Puglia (Apulia) and based on the 3 pillars of the Mediterranean Diet: seasonality, local produce and traditional preparations, so all our scrumptious dishes are made from scratch with great care and passion.
