Mention Alba, the first thing that comes to mind is those luxurious Alba white truffles, the coveted "diamonds of the kitchen". But in this blog post, the focus is on ALBA 1836, an Italian wine bar and restaurant located in a quiet corner of Duxton Hill.
Occupying a charming white colonial building, ALBA 1836 radiates a mix of elegance and old world charm. We walked through the entrance into an impressive floor to ceiling wine cellar which led us into the inner courtyard. The feel is spacious and tables are set comfortably apart.
Particularly eye-catching is the open kitchen, allowing us to take a peek into the meal preparation as Chef de Cuisine Luca Piras and his team work away.
