Anfe Italian Club
ANFE Italian Club Family Restaurant is cooking up bona fide Italian dishes in their Trattoria-style Newstead eatery.
The huge restaurant resides within the Italian Club HQ, with seating indoors as well as outdoors in the alfresco area. Decked out with a huge dance floor, ANFE also provides the perfect spot for functions.
The menu is laden with traditional Italian cuisine, from pasta to pizza to antipasti. The antipasti is a great place to start, such as with the antipasto misto – a delicious selection of deli meats, cheeses and olives.
Another tasty morsel is their arancini – it’s rather large and rather delicious.
The calamari fritti is an Italian style calamari, served with ANFE’s very own aioli sauce.
The polpetta al sugo is a veal and pork meatball, made fresh in house and doused in a neopoletana sauce.
For mains, you can’t go wrong with their traditional spaghetti ragu, served with ANFE’s signature Bolognese sauce.
Every main dish goes down well with bread, and ANFE’s authentic Italian bread is served warm and brushed with garlic butter.
Perhaps you’d prefer a steak? ANFE can cook up a killer wagyu.
Now you can’t eat Italian without tucking to dessert, and let us tell you their crème brulee is the tastiest brulee in Newstead.
Wash your feast down with an authentic glass of Italian wine, a bespoke Italian beer (perhaps one of their seven kinds of Peroni) or even some grappa.
