Quality Italian food with a touch of Asia
We shared the order, which consisted of two starters, the Essenza famous beef tenderloin carpaccio with tandoori and mint yoghurt, and a perfectly baked provolone with tomato texture which both were truly remarkable. For the main course, we decided to go with Essenza´s Pappardelle Alla Parmigiana, the dish was executed perfectly and made it a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach.
We also fancied some fish so, the sea bass with carrot zucchini and its pure was our choice. The tender vegetables and special pure balanced the flavour of the seabass very well. There were a few desserts, but we went with a classic Tiramisu that was simply divine. We left satisfied and the beachfront was the perfect place to walked off our dinner.
An original menu for you to explore
We were very happy with what we ordered but left wanting to try some of the other dishes that looked and smelled amazing like their pizzas and selection of stuffed pasta.
A good reason to come back to explore this exciting menu. So, if you are searching for a gastronomic experience like no other, Essenza restaurant in Calpe is your place.
