Baduzzi means meatballs and here they are taken very seriously. It’s a labour of love for owner Michael Dearth and Executice Chef Ben Bayly, whose innovation and dedication shines through in Baduzzi’s rustic yet skillful menu.
Baduzzi has been a smash hit since the doors first opened, with simple Italian inspired food and a clever, approachable wine list. The menu always offers something to please but it is hard to pull off a visit without sampling the finest hand-made meatballs. We recommend the crayfish, and the organic braised beef, and the venison meatballs… This is genuine food for the people.
