“Giuseppe of Ago brings his fine cuisine to Malibu”
Gravina in Puglia.,is an Italian municipality in the Southern Italian Province of Bari. it is sited along a river of the same name in the Western Murgia geographical area of Apulia. It’s the seat of Alta Murgia National . Gravina (meaning grain and wine) was home to Giuseppe Segreto, who has been involved in many great restaurant ventures of the past 30 years, including Toscana Brentwood. The design of his new restaurant ,located in the former home of the Sage Room , is simultaneously elegant and casual with such creative touches as wine bottle chandeliers..
I had the good fortune to dine at Gravina twice since it opened and am happy to report the food is fabulous and they now serve some wonderful wines to compliment their fine Italian cuisine. My first visit I enjoyed the excellent rack of lamb while my companions enjoyed delicious steak au poivre . My most recent visit was with my friend Diana,a fellow realtor (recently relocated from NYC) . We shared a delicious, locally sourced Rucola which is arugola with shaved parmesan and balsamic dressing ,followed by tagliatelle with bolognese for me and delicately prepared filet of sole for Diana. I drank a tasty Sangiovese while Diana sipped a full bodied Cabernet. We finished our meal with a yummy fresh berry tart . Giuseppe’s wife Mariella and her sous chef from Ago get kudos for the great kitchen .
Gravina will be open on Easter Sunday for dinner from 5PM to 9 PM serving their regular menu .Reservations Recommended
