Intricately crafted in true Don Giovanni’s style, chefs have designed the menu to cater for all. With gluten-free options, the dishes are extensive – and will not disappoint.

Starters include Caponata Piccante Con Melanzane (£6) a mildly spicy aubergine and mixed vegetable stew cooked the authentically Sicilian way and served with lightly toasted homemade bread and Puttanesca Panzarotti (£5.50) a portion of dough triangles filled with spinach, capers, olives, vegan parmesan and Italian herbs. Sticking to classics, enjoy the Bruschetta Alle Zucchine (£4.95) with roasted courgette, basil pesto and vegan cheese.

With gluten-free pasta available on any dish, the Vegano Special mains include the Fettuccine Al Limone e Prezzemolo (£12.95) – a zesty flavoured fettuccine pasta drizzled in a buttery lemon sauce with parsley and pine nuts. Also lined up is the show-stopping fuschia pink Spaghetti Ross Alla Barbabietola (£14.00) which takes linguine and mixes it with beetroot pesto, served with pistachios and a rosemary dressing.

Diners can also enjoy Don Giovanni’s vegan take on traditional Italian dishes with the Lasagne Alla Melanzane (£13.15) with beautiful layers of roasted aubergine, cherry tomato sauce, lasagne pasta and vegan mozzarella and the Pizza Vegana (£12.75) – vegan mozzarella, artichokes, spinach, black olives, pine nuts and cherry tomato topped with rucola salad.

Enjoy the perfect blend of flavour and texture with the Don Giovanni Risotto selections, including Risotto Alla Zucca (£13.25) with roasted butternut squash and vegan parmesan.

In true Don Giovanni’s style, their desserts are lovingly homemade and crafted to perfection, including their delicious vegan Panna Cotta (£5.25) with vanilla, vegan cream and served with a berry compote. They also offer a selection of Sorbets and their zesty and unique Fragole con Balsamico e Gelato Limone (£4.75) which is a lemon sorbet in a strawberry and balsamic sauce, served with amaretto liqueur. Not to be missed!

Plant-based or not, this menu is a real crowd-pleaser. With each dish crafted by the experienced and dedicated team of chefs at Don Giovanni, exquisite flavours, first-class service and a friendly, warm welcome is guaranteed.
