Starting at 12:30 pm, guests will be treated to a sensory delight that celebrates the rich culinary heritage of Italy.

Kick off your afternoon with a refreshing Spritz, the quintessential Italian aperitivo, as you soak in the enchanting ambiance. Then, prepare to indulge in a meticulously crafted four-course menu, served family-style. The menu is showcasing celebrated dishes from Balboa Italian’s repertoire and the refined elegance of The Valley Estate.

A menu that takes you on an Italian taste journey

The journey begins with a tantalising array of starters. House-made garlic rosemary focaccia, warmed mixed Australian olives, Byron Bay burrata cheese with persimmon and prosciutto crudo, tomato arancini, and a delicate kingfish crudo. Next, savour delectable Ballina king prawns with bagna cauda and prawn oil.

For the main event, indulge in the veal cannelloni, a decadent creation featuring porcini béchamel, cavolo nero, mixed exotic mushrooms, and a rich roasting jus. Accompany your main course with two exquisite sides. Firstly, an endive salad with gorgonzola, blood orange, candied pecans, and vinaigrette. Alongside the cima de rapa, a delightful combination of confit garlic, chilli, and parmesan.

Save room for the grand finale! A lemon fiori di latte panna cotta with almond strusel. A delightful dessert that will leave you craving for more.
