Pasta week in Capri Court

Vincenzo Spinozi, one of Italy's finest pasta makers, is coming to town. From 21 to 27 February he will present a special menu in Shangri La's Capri Court Restaurant. This is what the press release had to say:
"From 21 to 27 February 2010, Capri Court restaurant at Shangri La's Barr al Jissah Resort and Spa will welcome the legendary Italian pasta maker, Vincenzo Spinosi, who will bring a touch of Italian flair as he presents a special à la carte menu of mouth-watering dishes prepared with his signature brand of hand-made egg-based pasta. The 'Prince of Pasta' will be joined by guest chef Mauro Taufer from Hotel Excelcior in Venice."
Spinosi's pasta has quite a reputation throughout the world, and initiatives like these need encouragement, so we will be there to taste the action. The menu is only served during dinner times. For reservations, contact the hotel at 24776565.


  1. JummyJummyJummyJummy! If you like food, hurry to the Shangri La! Thanks for making us aware of Spinozi's visit!

  2. This is indeed very good. The 'Spinosi' menu has some lovely dishes, but the real attraction is the set 4-course menu, including pairings with Gaja wines. A real treat, and an unique opportunity to drink these wines at a (somewhat) reasonable price. If you haven't been yet: hurry up!

  3. Did you go along to this? I did with my other half who isn't really keen on Italian (unfortunatly for him, I am!) and we both loved it. Spinosi is quite the character :)

    Love the blog by the way, any excuse for me to talk about food.

  4. Hi Omanibrit,
    Thanks for the kind words and sorry for the late reply. We did indeed go to this event. We thought the food was very good. But if you're crazy about wine (like we are), this was even better. The opportunities to drink Gaja are rare, even outside Oman.
