Inspired Sicilian fine dining deep in the Wirral. Touting the flavours of the distant Med, Da Piero is a family-run restaurant led by chef-patron Piero di Bella and his son Alan.
The cooking and wine list includes Italy’s finest. Typical ingredients include red-yolked eggs, lemons from the Amalfi Coast, olives, anchovies, pistachio, fire-red Tarocco oranges and sea salt from Sicily’s Trapani.
Ice creams and sorbets are made on site and the menu goes in for family recipes. Follow dishes such as semi-dried tomato antipasto with traditional spaghetti alla carbonara (no cream, just pancetta and eggs) or fresh linguine with lemon sauce.
Mains and carne could include ossobuco with a garlic spinach or ‘Cotolette della Nonna Emma’; beef escalope cooked to Piero’s mum’s recipe. The signature dessert is home-candied fruit pastries, stuffed with ricotta.
