Our Story

ALBA restaurant was born in August 2019, with the goal of getting local people to taste and discover the real home-cooking cuisine from Salento, a beautiful province in the South of Puglia region, Italy.

We aim to do so especially thanks to our knowledge of the cuisine and hospitality, obtained throughout years of experience, but also using traditional recipes books which are dated in the early 19th century, as well as my grandmother’s handwritten recipes book that I still jealously keep.

In our restaurant you’ll be able to find unique products, such as coffee and typical dishes from Salento: “Pupu a pignata”, the “Pittule”, the “Rustico leccese” and many more.

Come find us in Newtown, hearth of Sydney, to experience an everlasting tradition of love, food and passion.
