Da Mirco Osteria
The best Italian cooking is simple, perfectly curated, and deeply understood. It is both an art, and a craft, and this is the cooking you will discover at da Mirco. Mirco Fondrini’s elegantly austere room offers the finest fresh pasta dishes in Cork – the classic tagliatelle al ragu; slinky homemade ravioli with sage and butter sauce; lasagne with three cheeses. As Sig. Fondrini hails from Valtellina in Northern Italy, where the cooking is hearty, you must make sure to try robust dishes like the polenta taragna with porcini, and the classic manzo all’olio, the most sumptuous slow-cooked beef served with a polenta and potato cake. Of course, the tiramisu is benchmark good, the wines are superb, and Mirco is simply one of the city’s finest hosts. It all adds up to to what Italian food lovers call allegria: joy.
