A SLICE OF ITALY

 

 

What's better than good food, incredible wine and outstanding company? Couple that with a sensational setting and you have a winning combination. With the pursestrings a little on the budget side these days, it's always great to find a place to eat that not only offers up some fantastic food, won't break the bank and guarantees an ambience to remember. A few weeks ago, Rave Review was invited to BICE Restorante at Southern Sun Hyde Park for what promised to be a fabulous evening of food and wine, and it lived up to every expectation and more. 

 

My bestie Dale Herbst and I arrived at the restaurant and were instantly greeted by the hotel manager, as well as the two head honcho's ofBICE, Diego Montresor and Roberto Mela. With larger than life and captivating personalities they made us feel at home instantly. We were seated at a gorgeous table overlooking the Jozi skyline and couldn't have asked for a better view. Our wine pairing connosiuer arrived and the feast commenced. I got a little nervous when I saw 8 wine glasses placed in front of each of us; I after all had to maintain a modicum of decorum; this was a work evening after all. Alas after the first glass of champagne, I forgot all about decorum and had oodles of fun!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dishes did not stop arriving. After our fourth dish, we were told main course was on it's way and I had to ask the manager to repeat himself for fear of a miscommunication! BICE served up 8 amazing courses, and paired to perfection with wines from all over the world and locally. I was blown away not only by our wine connoisseur knowledge of his craft, but by the extensive wines that BICE stock. Definitely a winner in my book. From delicious eggplants and ravioli starters, to lamb, beef, pasta's and a tray of four desserts on the plate (ice cream, apple pie, saffron sorbet, chocolate sauce), we truly were spoiled for choice. I even got a taste of my very first truffel. Everything was prepared and plated up so beautifully, that I felt guilty at times messing it all up. 

 

Another thing I loved about our evening at BICE was the manager. A gem of note. He loves his restaurant and he loves his patrons even more. I watched him going from table to table, interacting with everybody on a personal level, and thats always amazing to see at a restaurant. When we enquired about a dessert that we had just eaten, asking his opinion of it, he sat down with us at the table, whipped out a FORK from his blazer pocket and tucked in. No jokes! I still laugh thinking about it, but seeing someone who is so dedicated to his love of food, that gave BICE a Rave Review right there and then. 

 

We would love for our Rave Review readers to go and have a meal at BICE. It's the perfect setting for a date night, girls night out, and even a work meeting. The staff will ensure that you feel at home, and the food, well it speaks for itself. I am more convinced than ever that If South Africa had a Little Italy, you'll find it at BICE.
