From the sensuous sound of water lapping against the walls of Venice’s ancient palazzi to the intoxicating fragrance of citrus blossoms in Sicily, Italy is a country made for lovers.

But, if you can’t make it out to the Mediterranean this February for Valentine’s Day, or maybe you’re just looking to treat your loved one for no reason other than just because, why not book a table at No.2 Augustan.

The menu is concise, allow the skilled chefs to focus on fresh ingredients and no-fuss authentic flavours – you are assured to find a splendid choice of mouthwatering Italian antipasto and secondi piatto dishes to whet your appetite.

Dishes on the menu include: Arrosticini (Abruzzese lamb kebabs), pollo parmigiana (chicken fried in breadcrumbs and Parmesan topped with ragu and cheese), linguine de mare (seafood and smoked salmon pasta), and spaghetti carbonara (authentic Italian carbonara, pancetta egg and parmesan) too name but a few of the main dishes.

There’s also a choice of vegetarian and gluten-free dishes available, including the already incredibly popular option of Pizza No.2 which is topped with pomodoro, brown shrimp, mussel meat, garlic oil and mozzarella. Diners also have the option to create their own pizza with a choice of six toppings to choose from.

Sides are priced at £2 each, offering French fries, thyme potatoes, garlic ciabatta and roasted vegetables to accompany your meal.

Lunch is served from noon until 3pm, Monday to Friday, with evening service starting from 6pm until 9pm. The restaurant is open all day from noon until 9pm on Saturday and Sunday, offering a traditional Sunday roast with an Italian twist that is priced at the same great value for money of £10 for two courses or £14.95 for three courses. 

Throughout December, a breakfast buffet was offered at £5 per person, which is an all-you-can-eat buffet including coffee, tea and orange juice. This amazing feast is also available for January and is a fantastic way to start the day this New Year. It is served Tuesday to Saturday from 8am until 10.30am

So, why not let No.2 Augustan introduce you to the beauty and simplicity of Italian cuisine this January and discover the tantalising joys of Italian cooking at its very best.
