Recently opening its elegant doors in April 2014, Artusi is a fine dining restaurant that serves modern Italian fare and has already established a reputation for its incredible hand-made pasta. The stunning interior serves as a draw card itself and if you’re lucky you’ll be seated near the windows with a view of the city across the river. If it’s on offer, the Tiramasu with espresso caviar is an impressive way to finish.
