Belmont, Western Australia, 2 September 2016: Tavolo today announced the opening of the new venue, located at 5/237 Knutsford Avenue, Cloverdale (in the Reading Cinema Complex).
From the people behind Sapore Espresso Bar, Tavolo (pronounced ‘tah-voh-loh’) caters to a lunch and dinner crowd, serving from 11am to late every day.
Describing the cuisine as ‘modern European with an Italian twist’, owner and Belmont resident Mario Fisicchia is confident that Tavolo’s menu will be a hit with the locals. “We thought the bar and restaurant scene in Belmont was lacking, so we wanted to bring some new life to a growing community. Being locals ourselves we really want to see Belmont flourish”. The restaurant will offer house-made pasta, hand rolled pizza, quick lunches and many other European styled dishes. Head Chef Brandyn Horsley is passionate about using fresh, local produce, “I believe in farm to table, using raw produce as fresh as possible, direct from suppliers. Our seasonal menu has something for everyone”.
West Australian brands such as Sittella Winery and Gage Roads Brewing Company appear on the drinks menu, which melts classic cocktails with modern interpretations such as the Espresso Martini with salted caramel vodka and Fiori cold brew coffee.
Tavolo have partnered with local community group Starick Services to fundraise at their official Launch Party on September 10th. Starick Services provide assistance to women and children experiencing domestic violence. The night, which will be attended by Perth’s food blogging community and Belmont VIPs, will help to raise awareness and funds for this local community group. Owner Jessica Fisicchia explains “being Belmont residents ourselves, we are connected with the local scene. Helping out a local community group is the least we can do to support those that support us”.
The interior of Tavolo, (meaning ‘table’), has been designed to align with the Italian pizza bar and kitchen concept in a contemporary manner whilst being relaxed, warm and appealing to all demographics. A neutral palette of concrete, natural oak timbers, black steel and warm greys has been used and accents of terracotta incorporated to allude to the concept of a modern Italian trattoria. The references for the design are partly Scandinavian and partly industrial.
Tavolo opened to a packed house of friends and family on Tuesday August 30th before opening to the public on 1 September. the official launch night.
