It doesn’t seem to matter where in the world you are, Italian cuisine permeates the dining scene, not because of its’ seeming simplicity and ability to bring people together in small or large groups to passionately indulge in their favourite dishes.
Ristorante Paparazzi is no exception, where husband and wife team Diego and Christina Taibi (a Sicilian name) insist that for them it is all about bringing family and friends together over food.
Located at Antigua Slipway, English Harbour, with stunning views of Nelson’s Dockyard, Fort Berkley and the often historic or certainly beautiful yachts entering and leaving the harbour, the team invite you to ‘enjoy our amazing food and atmosphere at prices that will have you saying ”Magnifico”!.’
Talking to Christina her lifetime of cooking and catering, which included being brought up in a house surrounded by a family with the same passion for cooking is evident as she talks about the fun of cooking with ‘Nona’s’ recipes and producing tasty pasta’s, salads, panini’s and pizza’s cooked in a wood oven.
The family theme runs through the bar and restaurant where comfortable seating encourages large groups to meet for pre or post meal drinks, and a treasure chest for kids will make little ones excited to dine at the restaurant. We won’t elaborate on or it would spoil the surprise.
We look forward to integrating our Restaurant with the business clientele. We offer a waterfront location across from Historic Nelson’s Dockyard with a comfortable, quiet setting and harbour edge views with impressive yachts surrounding the harbour-side. It is a serene location and ideal for business conversation. We offer home-style Italian cooking using only fresh produce - including Fresh Catch of the Day, Rib-Eye, Angus Beef Tenderloin, Seafood Pasta, just to name a few. Our Wine Portfolio consists of Italian selections. Indulge yourself and enjoy this prime “hideaway” location. Magnifico!
