WELCOME TO SWEET ITALY

Often just the thought of flavours from a different country can make your mouth water and conjure up exotic images of faraway places. When they are brought to life in the fullness of tradition, something special awaits you. Salve Basile has created just such an opportunity with his Sweet Italy café and Real Italian Doughnuts (known in Italy as zeppole di patate). It is a delight to bring you traditional Southern Italian delicacies.

We are bringing a range of traditional Italian dolce from Southern Italy. From our well known doughnuts (Zeppole di patate) to well known desserts like tiramisu and profiteroles, to more traditional favourites like Delicizo’s and Cannoli. From family recipes handed down from generation to generation, using quality ingredients, cooked with loving care, we are bringing to you some wonderful culinary delights.

Eat in or take away!

 
 

DELICIOUS DOUGHNUTS

 
12
 

100% NATURAL

 

In traditional family recipe style they are made of 100% natural ingredients with no preservatives or additives. Made as yeast based doughnuts which include potatoes, flour, olive oil and lemon zest. The result is a soft, light and airy doughnut which is absolutely delicious!

 

LOW IN SUGAR

 

Amazingly our doughnuts are very low in sugar!!! Would you believe that the doughnuts themselves only have 0.6gm sugar per 100gm??? Ok… When we serve them we often lightly sprinkle them in caster sugar and cinnamon (but only very lightly!) Now that’s impressive!

 

GREAT FLAVOUR

 

What can we say? They are delicious – so unique and very different to your common donut. The combination of ingredients creates a light, airy and mouth-watering doughnut you will just love to eat.

 

For more information on our doughnuts please visit our sister company Real Italian Doughnuts.
