Trattoria 51 Liverpool...

Trattoria 51 is a charming and traditional Italian restaurant located on Old Hall Street in the business district of Liverpool. Housed in an elegant Victorian building, the restaurant creates a great impression before you even walk in, with its imposing facade.
We were running a few minutes late after going for a few drinks nearby and we were immediately put at ease and given a very warm welcome by restaurateur Attilio Sergi, who seated us by the window affording us a great view of the restaurant and the street outside. The restaurant is split across two floors, with a sweeping bar area which includes a display counter of delicious foods with shelves of delectable wines beyond. 


Friday evening service was in full swing and a buzz of conversation filled the air along with tantalising aromas of Italian food. We sipped chilled Prosecco as we decided what to order from the extensive menu which offers an impressive array of traditional Italian dishes. As always I was drawn to ordering the Fornarina al Formaggio, garlic bread with cheese, but our friendly waiter extolled the virtues of Fornarina Ligure, Garlic Bread with Tomato and Pesto so he kindly asked the kitchen to make us a half and half version. The bread was divine. The cheese topped half was rich and moreish whilst the other half was light and refreshing with a traditional Italian flavour.



 As a starter I chose Melanzane Parmigiana, aubergines baked with tomato, Mozzarella, Parmesan and garlic. This was simply divine and one aspect I love about Italian cuisine is that such a wealth of amazing flavours can come from so few ingredients. It is incredible to think that a dish simply of baked aubergine slices, topped with a rich pomodoro sauce and mozzarella can translate in to such complex flavours. Meanwhile, my dining companion had the Peperone Ripieno; baked Sweet Pepper, filled with Risotto, spicy sausages, Mozzarella and served with tomato sauce baked with rice and Italian sausage.

For the main course we both decided on fresh artisan pasta, for me there was no contest in what to order as the Tortelloni Burro e Salvia sounded delightful. These were homemade Tortelloni filled with ricotta and spinach served with creamy mozzarella, butter and Sage Sauce and Parmesan. This was everything I love about pasta in one sumptuous dish. A hearty portion of lighter than air Tortelloni which gave way to a flavoursome ricotta and spinach filling, whilst plenty of melted mozzarella, butter and sage sauce and Parmesan shavings gave this dish even more levels of decadence. Wow, talk about comfort food!

Penne Arrabbiata, with tomato sauce, chilli and garlic

My dining companion debated over a wealth of menu options, before settling on the Penne Arrabbiata, with tomato sauce, chilli and garlic. Naturally, I tried his dish too which had a pleasantly spicy kick from the chilli and garlic sauce and a sweet tang from the vine cherry tomatoes and peppers. Both of these dishes were wonderfully traditional and evocative, and if I had closed my eyes I could have almost felt the warmth of the Tuscan sun on my face. We chatted to our host about the slow pace of life in Italy, the fact that lunches are often a much longer affair there than they are in the UK and how much Trattoria 51 aims to recreate this unhurried and leisurely style of dining. I think they have more than succeeded, as the restaurant embodies a welcoming atmosphere which combined with the delicious food only makes you want to linger and take your meal slowly.




As the time for dessert arrived, we were even more spoiled as we were presented with a special Chefs dessert sharing platter which gave us a taste of a selection of the various sweet delights on offer at Trattoria 51.  The large selection included a nutty and rich Torta Caprese, traditional apple tart, handmade biscuits with a jam heart, lemon and lime posset with shortbread biscuit, fresh raspberries and coulis (which the owner revealed his secret recipe for!), homemade tiramisu and wonderful freshly baked biscuit bombes which were reminiscent of Viennese whirls. The lemon and lime posset was wonderfully tangy and refreshing, whilst the tiramisu was rich and creamy. The Torta Caprese added a lovely chocolate crunch to proceedings and the handmade biscuits were delightful. 





Well what can I say, we had a simply lovely time at Trattoria 51. the food, service and ambience were all excellent and if you have not already been I recommend that you go as soon as possible! This is real, traditional Italian food with simple, bold flavours which satisfy the senses and leave you feeling contented and comforted. The dessert platter was a wonderful touch and a really nice surprise to round off a super night, and we were made so welcome by Attilio and his team, so a big thank you for such a great night!

What do you all think, would you like to enjoy some delicious Italian food at Trattoria 51, what is your favourite Italian dish? As always I cannot wait to hear you thoughts and thank you so much for reading this post!

    1. Thank you for making my wish true Dr Osauyi I was totally devastated when Hill left me. It was like all my world vanishing into sorrow and pain. But your kind words when I first emailed you gave me hope. I felt how sincere, honest and authentic you were from your first email. I know it sounds weird but out of all the casters I contacted, you were the only one to give me that impression of being so true and caring. More than your words, it’s the fantastic work you accomplished for me that I will keep in mind. You brought my lover back and you made all my wishes come true. He’s now loyal, pays attention to me, he offers me flowers every Sunday, and we often go out at the cinema or at the restaurant. I will be forever thankful for turning my life from hell to heaven!” Patricia, USA. You can contact Dr Osauyi for any help via email Osauyilovespell@yahoo.com or Telephone number +2347064294395

  10. Dear Dr. Wakina via (dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com), my name is Irene Cody; I’m thanking you for the love spell, done on me and my boyfriend, thanks for your consideration when I was dyeing with an indecisive spirit. You helped me get together with the man I have been loving for years.
    “I and my lover have been friends for years and lovers several times, but I wanted more, because I never knew if he had feelings for me or if he loves me more than I do, until I started dating our friend, I later realized that, I was making a huge mistake, I love him dearly and I wouldn’t do anything to hurt him, and I knew right inside of me, that he loves me, but I wanted him to prove it.
    He told me and proved to me exactly what I wanted, after he found out that I am going out with our friend, but he continued with his ex in a relationship that is ending (that relationship of his was one of the reasons for me to seek another) because he thinks that I’m with another man.”
    That’s the reason why am thanking Dr. Wakina, for the love spell that united us again, after 4 months without him, we are back now, stronger than ever because the love spell was cast according to his wish. Thank you Dr. Wakina and I will thank you more after our marriage. Contact him via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com

  11. I'm very excited sharing this amazing testimony about how i save my marriage and get my husband back today, My name is Keys Miller,i live in Los Angeles, California, and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring husband ,with three kids. A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my husband. So terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce,he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore.So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband . So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the email address of the spell caster whom he visited.{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past seven 9 months,gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster. So, i will advice you out there to kindly contact Dr Ogudugu if you have any problems,{GREATOGUDUGU@GMAIL.COM}. Thanks you Dr Ogudugu, i will always be testifying about your good work.

  13. My wife is back!!! my name is Gakuba Rauzan. I had a problem with my wife six months ago,which lead to us apart. When she broke up with me,i was no longer myself,I felt so empty inside. Until a friend of mine told me about a spell caster that helped in same problem too, that she found on a television program. i emailed the spell caster and I told him my problem and I did what he asked me to briefly make. To cut the long story short,before i knew what was happening,not up to 48 hours,my wife gave me a call and she come back to me and told me she was sorry about what has happened, she now tell me every day she love and miss me. I'm so grateful to this spell caster Dr. Ogudugu and i will not stop publishing his name on the internet just for the good work he has been doing. If you need his help, you can email him at(greatogudugu@gmail.com)and he will also help you. website: www.greatdrogudugusolutiontemple.webs.com
