Description

The inspiration for A Tavola (meaning “to the table”) derives from head chef and owner Eugenio Maiale’s childhood. As a child Maiale would play in the backyard of his Adelaide home waiting to hear the chime of “A Tavola” when dinner was ready.

On Maiale’s family kitchen table were consistently simple, honest and traditional style dishes. It was a daily ritual, almost a meditation, for his Mother to maker her own pasta – from ravioli and tortellini to tagliolini. She passed her knowledge onto Eugenio who further developed these techniques during his childhood visits to Italy. He would watch his relatives make an assortment of pastas, including pappardelle and gnocchi, rolling the pasta on big wooden tables either by hand or with broom handles.

Maiale has continued this concept of simple and elegant food with his first Sydney restaurant. The cuisine can be described as predominantly “Abruzzese” (a region north-east of the boot, next to Rome), with a heavy emphasis on dried and fresh pasta cooked to order. His dream was to create a unique Italian experience. He has done this by creating what has been described as a “euro chic” dining space which revolves around a 10metre long communal Indian marble table.

My 7to son LOVED the pasta making class and wanted to go again the next day. All the staff were fantastic, set up amazing and nice small class size so they could concentrate on all of the children on the course. The pasta our son made and came home with was delicious and a real confidence booster for him that he had made it and we as a family ate it together. Also love the bag and apron all the kids came home with. Highly recommend the class.

Had a great class, didn’t realize how easy and yet tricky all at once, making pasta was. Would highly recommend the class.
