Filini style food
Filini is all about Italian tradition and food culture. Culture equals food, and food equals culture. Italian cuisine is about serving simply-cooked food using quality ingredients. So here, you’ll experience this same philosophy: food as simple as the little matchstick-like pasta the restaurant was named after, and just as tasty… when you add wild mushrooms, thyme and olive oil! At Filini, food is refined, not fine dining, but definitely fresh, seasonal and sustainable. The emphasis is on meticulously sourced ingredients from Italy’s many regions, brought together simply and presented with style. This is why the food and drinks menu is changed twice a year to reflect the change of seasonality. Drinks are therefore also passionately Italian and wines are presented to be perfectly suited to drinking on their own or to accompany the menu.
