A taste of Italy, in the South of France
If you’re heading to Saint-Tropez this summer, be sure to take a trip to Casa di Stefano. One of Mayfair’s favourite Italian hotspots, Casa di Stefano, opened the doors to its sister restaurant in the French Riviera town in May. Eager to try it out, we found it tucked away down Rue des Feniers, a cobblestoned path just a few minutes stroll from the Marina, you can dine al fresco (which we did), or within the sea-blue interior of this charming restaurant.
With authentic Italian fare, the ingredients are sourced directly from Italy, you’re in very safe hands with head chef, Fabrice Muzj at the helm. Muzj previously worked for master chef Thierry Marx.
As for what to eat, we can highly recommend the fresh burrata with datterino tomatoes, and basil cress; the fillet of Sea bass with a delicious Mediterranean sauce, the beef carpaccio with rocket, parmesan shavings and truffle; and any of the hearty homemade pastas.
There is also an expansive array of desserts and though we didn’t try it (as we were nicely full from our pasta main course), we have heard the the iced fruit plate is legendary. And while we were on a ‘detoxifying’ weekend, we’re eager to get back to try the extensive wine and cocktail list.
It was a perfect way to spend a Saturday evening, and we returned to our hotel full of warm feelings and fond memories .
