Mantecato

While the phrase ‘authentic Italian’ is bandied around a lot, twin co-owners and managers Paolo and Marco Orso have the personal heritage and professional experience to back it up. Marco has just returned from five years running a restaurant in Milan, and Paolo has just finished up running the floor at Mosman’s Ormeggio at The Spit. Mantecato is a risotteria, a restaurant that specialises in risotto, and head chef Luca Bianchi has perfected the dish at Quattro Paste, the former name of the premises.
