Shhh. It’s a secret. A pop-up restaurant in a West End home.
The Tuscany Supper Club is the brainchild of a trio of Italians, Donata, her husband Andrea and Donata’s sister Guia. Architects and a geologist respectively, the three set up the supper club because they loved cooking.
“We love our food but there’s not much Tuscan food here in Brisbane, so we thought it would be a good idea to set this up to let people try it,‘’ Donata says.
On offer are a selection of entrees, mains and desserts-simple dishes, such as home made risotti, pasta, involtini and desserts. A maximum of ten people can attend the dinners which are held fortnightly on a Saturday and Sunday.
Menus are emailed out to diners, who pay by donation. As Donata says, they’re not a restaurant, so can’t set prices.
“It’s a big mix of people-from older people to students,’’ Donata says. Diners get a Bellini on arrival and a glass of Tuscan red with their meal, but are free to BYO.
