Advisor’s Notes

“You can’t go wrong with Italian food but Extra Virgin takes it to another level. Start with some prosciutto and cheese before you indulge in fresh handmade pasta. Buon appetito!”

Extra Virgin Overview

As Sailors step into Extra Virgin, they are greeted with warm colors and a vibrant yet inviting ambiance, setting the stage for an authentic Italian dining experience​​. At the heart of Extra Virgin’s menu is the handmade pasta, freshly made in-house, which stands as a testament to their commitment to culinary excellence and Italian tradition​​. The flavors take inspiration from different regions across Italy, offering Sailors a diverse taste experience.

Starting with an extensive wine and cocktail list, the journey begins with antipasti such as fried calamari and braised mini meatballs, leading to a delightful platter known as Affettati Misti, a must-try that’s brimming with rich cheeses and cured meats​​.

The pasta dishes, such as the gnocchi with truffle butter sauce and pappardelle al ragu, are the stars of the show, embodying textures and flavors reminiscent of cherished Italian home cooking​​. And of course, no meal at Extra Virgin would be complete without indulging in dessert! The affogato cart presents custom-made gelato sundaes topped with a shot of espresso for a truly delightful finish​​.
