Del Villaggio Italian Restaurant

A traditional authentic Italian restaurant in the heart of Birmingham’s main entertainment area, offering a simple reasonably priced two or three course trattoria menu with a choice of two rustic wines, and the more sophisticated a la carte menu.

I never fail to marvel at the ability of Italian cuisine to produce a list of dishes that for sheer scale takes some matching. Whilst commendably diverse DV’s list is briefer than many, but just as appealing.

It is also encouraging to see Italian cooking, which is steeped in tradition, taking steps into modern preparation of well-loved dishes, largely a question of technique. Are we looking forward to a cuisine entry of “Modern Italian” I wonder?

DV lay claim to being the only flambé in Birmingham, and who am I to dispute that? But I can tell you that their filetto di manzo, beef fillet tournedos with green peppercorn sauce would stand up well to competition, as would the flambé traditional dessert of zabaione.

There are two set lunch menus and one for dinner, with à la carte also available. Set lunch dishes could include loin of monkfish with green beans, feta, radish, chickpeas and tapenade; slow-cooked Cotswold white chicken, followed by lemon cake, coconut sorbet and fresh raspberries.

La Carte offers starters of native Cornish lobster with a salad of summer vegetables and coral mayonnaise, or seared hand-dived Ross Shire scallops with an emulsion of cocos de paimpol, chorizo, squid, tomato and parsley, from a list of around five.

Fish features strongly with fillet of turbot, sucrine lettuce, parsley roots, baby ratte potatoes, girolles and summer truffle chicken jus.

Simpsons has a carefully chosen wine list. Prior reference on line will enable you to have some advance intelligence with which to make the final selection on the day.
