Da Maria is a modern Italian restaurant in the Osteria style featuring stunning interiors by Roman architects Lazzarini Pickering, Da Maria highlights the diversity of Italian food, wine, music, fashion, art and friends, with more than a little Capri in the heart of Seminyak.
The menu represents a modern approach to simple, classic Italian flavours, with pizza undoubtedly front and centre. With dough fermented for 24 hours and inspired by special Neapolitan artisan techniques, the pizzas are cooked in local, Naples inspired lava stone ovens. Another spectacular offering is the traditional Italian Porchetta (whole local pig) marinated in local herbs and cooked slowly over coals. Lighter offerings include appetisers such as Asparagus with anchovy butter and parmesan; Snapper Crudo with tomato, chilli and marjoram and Octopus with overnight beans, red wine vinegar and parsley.
From the wood-fired grill comes King Prawns with chilli, black olives and mint and the Abruzzian Arrosticini – traditional lamb skewers with lemon and rosemary salt in share plates for 5, 10 or 15 guests. There are a variety of fresh pasta dishes such as Oreccheitte with spanner crab, zucchini flowers and lemon or Gnocchi pesto alla Genovese. To finish, after a series of desserts such as Bomboloni or the Da Maria Tiramisu, is a house specialty of watermelon served over fresh ice with optional Campari, Lime Sherbert or Chilli Salt. For guests wanting to embark on the Da Maria feasting journey, the La Panarda menu is more of a celebration than a meal and offers groups of diners a selection of dishes to share.
The bar at Da Maria has a very Bar Americano feel and focuses on elegant simplicity with most drinks having the flavour profile of Campari or Aperol, blended with white spirits, local fruit and citrus. Classic Italian favourites such as the Negroni and Spritz are complemented by most of the classics but with an emphasis on the less sweet, aperitif style. Da Maria also makes many of their in-house liqueurs, including their vermouth. The wine list is deliberately contemporary, simple and carefully selected to perfectly suit the style of cuisine.
Music plays a very important role at Da Maria with the playlist at Da Maria being mixed by iconic Sydney DJ and event producer, Kali from Picnic. Live DJ’s will be introduced every night after 10.30pm, with house music for holiday people being the musical direction.
