In the bustling heart of Seminyak sits osteria style modern Italian restaurant Da Maria. Featuring stunning interiors by Roman architects Lazzarini Pickering, Da Maria not only serves up authentic Italian food and wine, but is a cultural slice of Capri in itself.
It’s not just the pizza, music and wine that keeps people coming back; the interior is like no other. Paying homage to Italian designer Giò Ponti, the space is reminiscent of a 1960s Amalfi Coast courtyard offset by a typical Balinese backdrop of rubber trees, cacti and passionfruit vines. With a palette of cool blue, crisp white and bold geometric styling, Da Maria is a fusion of a contemporary Italian hospitality and local Balinese aesthetic, renowned for its winning combination of Late Night Pizza + Disco. And if late nights aren’t your thing (it’s okay, we get it!), you can still enjoy an extensive cocktail list and delicious modern Italian menu. Expect to be tempted by the likes of asparagus with anchovy butter and parmesan, chilli and marjoram with octopus, and king prawns with chilli, black olives and mint. Still hungry? Da Maria also serves a variety of fresh pasta dishes and a VERY enticing dessert menu. Tiramisu, anyone?
Open daily from 12pm, visit DA MARIA at Jl. Petitenget No.170, Kerobokan Kelod, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kota Denpasar, Bali 80361, Indonesia
